I have never found a sweater dress that quite worked for me, until I found this little black 90s-does-the-60s dress. Most sweater dresses I've tried cling in all the wrong places, but this one seems to work because it has a tight knit and holds some of its own shape. I've been simplifying the shapes and colors in my outfits recently. Chocolate brown and black are not neutrals I usually put together, but throw in a variety of textures (suede, knit, shiny leather) and it all seems to work. My socks are actually just the tops of a old pair of my husband's socks. It's an economical trick if you like the look of boots with stockings!
