With a sweater dress
If warmth accompanied by coziness is what you’re looking for, then what better way to go about it than wearing a sweater dress with knee high boots?

Wearing knee high boots with a shift dress is one of the most forgiving outfits suitable for any age group and body type.
Shift dresses are flattering, considering they are meant to be that loose. Wearing one makes you feel more confident, because it hides your “weaknesses” that you might be self-conscious about (such as a bulging midsection or wider hips or thicker thighs).
You can pick the length you prefer most with a shift dress whether long or short. You can also choose from different colors and wear dresses with some knee-high boots.
