As cliché as it may sound, sweater weather is officially upon us — and it's OK if you're actually excited about it. That's because sweaters are a ride-or-die staple in any wardrobe — whether you opt for oversized knits or form-fitting turtlenecks, sweaters can take you from work to happy hour, all while feeling your coziest self. And if you're looking for more of a reason to get excited about cold-weather season, just take a look at Kristen Bell's sweater dress. Spoiler alert: It's the ideal middle ground between comfort and style (and you're about to add it to your cart).
Bell was photographed while out in New York City on Wed. wearing a houndstooth, mini sweater dress with a thick, contrasting turtleneck. The actor was dressed for an appearance on The View, where she promoted the new season of her TV show, The Good Place. Bell collaborated with her longtime stylist Nicole Chavez (whose client roster also includes Katie Lowes and Rachel Bilson) to achieve the look.
Bell paired her comfy piece (which is actually an oversized sweater by Vika Gazinskaya) with suede, thigh-high boots by Stella Luna. To finish the look, Bell accessorized with a structured Danse Lente bag in the perfect white-and-orange hue.
Bell, who shares two children with her equally famous husband Dax Shepard, showed just how easy and practical it is to be warm, cozy, and fashionable all at the same time. While not everyone can turn a regular sweater in to a dress by throwing on some thigh-high boots, there are plenty of longer sweater dresses on the market this season.
Whether you're on the hunt for a mini dress like Bell's to pair with tights and trendy cowboy boots, or an ankle-grazing, fitted maxi to wear to a company party or dinner date, there's a sweater dress out there with your name on it.
