The Knitted Dress
Are you looking for something cosy to wear but want to look stylish and comfortable at the same time? A knitted dress is the perfect piece to keep you warm now that the temperatures have dropped. The great thing about a knitted dress is that it can be dressed up or down depending on when and where you want to wear it. I have pulled some outfits together to show you how these can be worn in both a formal and casual way.
Red merino slouchy jumper dress, Jigsaw, £190
Black knee high boots, Dune, £180
Black bag, Jigsaw, £185
Red is a key colour for the season so this is a great one if you want to tick off that trend. I have kept the accessories black to give the dress the focus and adding a nice black wool coat like the double breasted Mango one that I showed in my outerwear blog at the beginning of the month would really finish off the outfit.
Neutral ribbed midi dress, John Lewis, £45
Trainers, Veja, £160
Cap, Varley, £30
Brown cross body bag, Cos, £99
This is a casual way to wear the knitted dress, dressed down with trainers and a cap. I have kept the colours tonal, which I think works really well with the rib knit of the dress. Adding a long line puffer coat to this outfit would complete it.
Black lightweight merino turtleneck dress, Cos, £95
Black ankle boots, Mango, £79.99
Black bag, Apatchy, £85
Belt, Isabel Marant, £150
Simple and sophisticated with an all black outfit. Adding the tan leather belt will give your figure definition and adds a nice contrast to the black outfit. Again the black double breasted Mango coat from my Outerwear blog would look great with this outfit or you could be bold and add a coloured wool coat.
Grey knitted dress, Hush, £76
Tan knee high boots, Carvela, £129
Tan bag, Clarks, £110
I love the tan accessories next to the charcoal grey of this dress. This would be great for work or a daytime event.
Camel button detail dress, Reiss, £70
Animal court shoe, Mango, £49.99
Brown bag, Charles Keith, £85
Adding the court shoes with this knitted dress gives it a formal look and would make it appropriate for work or a smart occasion. Again, keeping the colours tonal really works with this dress. Adding some gold hoop earrings and necklace would finish off the outfit.
