This '90s trend is coming back full force for this season, and who doesn't love when a fashion trend is both stylish and comfortable?

Hell, you can wear a different sweater dress every day for a week and still have one left over for laundry day. That is, if you're buying each and every sweater dress on this list. (Which you should, they're all gorgeous.)
So get those card details on hand and get ready to get comfortable, because this is one winter trend that will keep you warm and looking wonderful. The plus size sweater dress might just end up being the most-worn piece of your wardrobe this winter.
