Every winter season the little knit dress makes it’s appearance quietly in the stores, snapped up by those in the know as to just how useful, cosy and versatile this dress can be and passed by by those looking for something more evening, elegant, chic, sexy, or so they think.
The wonderful thing about the knit dress (or jumper dress or sweater dress, not to be confused with fine knit jersey dresses) is that it is just so versatile. Depending on the style you pick you can wear your knit dress to work and on out to dinner, on Christmas Day, on walks at the weekend with thick tights and sheepskin lined boots, or with heels for lunch on the town.
Most of us who fell in love with this dress years ago already know how to make it work for them, and I in particular usually add one to my collection (each year). They don’t crease, and the moment a cold day appears the knit dress is the perfect dress for looking chic and sleek or just cosying up in.
Notably with this season’s crop there’s everything from long slinky midi dresses to illusion but body con styles and easy on a cold day snow flake scattered knit dresses or intarsia knitted designs.
Have a look and take your pick, the easiest to wear by anyone with lumps and bumps, or curves, are those with a pattern down the front, a fuller skirt, or wrap and ruche detailing. Over to you.
