Junior sweater dresses are becoming very popular with teenagers and adults alike. Many celebrities have been spotted wearing them, which makes them even more popular with teens that enjoy following fashion trends of their favorite stars. A sweater dress is usually a long sweater that comes down past the wearer's knees; leggings are often worn with a sweater dress. Wearing a belt with a large buckle across the middle of the dress is also another trend that goes along with sweater dresses. Fall is a great time for sweaters and sweater dresses because the weather is cool enough to wear long sleeves, and it is no longer hot outside.

When you buy clothes online, you need to make sure that you read the sizing guide that is usually provided, since you cannot actually try on anything until you receive the item. Often, sites will allow you to exchange the item if it does not fit correctly, though some may not let you and even if it does, you will have to wait at least a week, in most cases, to get your junior sweater dress replaced with one that fits you. When you give clothing as a gift, make sure you know the receipient's size since an undersized or oversized sweater will do him/her no good. Since teenagers who have not had their growth spurts yet might grow at least a little, getting the sweater dress a little bigger might be a good idea, though if it is too big then the teen still might not be able to wear it, even after she grows a little.

After you have your sweater dress, you might not be sure about when you should wear it. There are many different places where wearing a sweater dress would be appropriate. A few of these places are:

There are many other places where you could wear a sweater dress, though there are also times when wearing one might not be such a good idea. If you are supposed to dress formally for an event like a school dance or funeral, then a sweater dress might not be the best idea.
