If there’s one dress we all love to love over the Christmas/party season it just has to be the knit dress. With added stretch and in fitted or easy shapes – a little bit of knit will cover every occasion from a dressed up lunch to drinks and dinner.
Most collections have one or more knitted dresses in their range – almost all come in black, but you can ring the changes and go for red leopard print (Karen Millen) plum (Ted Baker) and metallic leopard (Michael Michael Kors). My outright favourite has to be French Connection’s black knit skater dress with see through panels and an easy fit.
I love off off the shoulder dresses because they have such a flattering, romantic look, as do fluted sleeve dresses. And I love bodycon dresses but they can be tricky, particularly if in a plain fabric, if you’re looking for something to wear on Christmas Day when you may just overindulge, unless you’re seriously slim or you’ve worked incredibly hard at the gym. I’ll leave the bodycon to you…….
