Ever owned a knitted dress? It's a versatile piece that when worn correctly, is a staple every girl should have in their wardrobe. Don't be fooled thinking that a knitted dress is a conservative piece (well, it is, to some extent), but can also be turned into a sexy outfit. Here are some tips & tricks on how to rock that knitted dress!
The knitted dress is a tricky one to wear. For some body shapes, this loose fitting dress can make the women donning it appear as if they are wearing an unflattering sack, while for other women with a certain body type, this dress can make them look curvier than they want to appear.
Despite its tricky nature, the knitted dress is one of the most comfortable fashion pieces you can wear this season and so, with a love for the softest knits to keep us all warm this winter, here are ten ways you can rock a knitted dress, while flattering your body shape.
Tie a belt
When you want to give yourself a waist, tie a belt right where the edge of your bra ends or a bit lower, to accentuate the tiniest part of your body.
For a perfect blend of femininity and edginess, pair your soft knitted dress with a dark leather jacket for an effortless date night look.
When you want to look even more romantic and be on trend, then wear a lace camisole under your knitted dress and make sure the lace peaks from under the dress.
Go for the boot
For a daring look, try pairing your knitted dress with thigh high boots with a killer heel. In this case, a short knitted dress will work better than one with a midi length.
Sock it up
When you want the same effect of the thigh high boots but you would rather wear flats, then pair your knitted dress with thigh high socks and brogues to channel your inner school girl.
Put on those leggings
For those days when you would rather cover up from head to toe, wear your knitted dress with a great pair of leggings that complement the color of the dress. When in doubt, leather leggings are always a good idea.
Find that coat
If you are a minimalist queen, then your knitted dress should be worn with the same aesthetic in mind. Pairing your knitted dress with a long coat in the same color as the dress or in a color that is very similar to it is one way of staying true to your minimalist ways.
Put on a parka
If you love how your body looks in loose fitting clothes, then adding a parka jacket with your loose fitting dress is a way of channeling those laid back vibes you are going for. You can take this look a step further by donning edgy biker boots.
Make a statement
For those days when you want to make a statement, pair your simple knitted dress with statement heels. Go for a bold shoe here to bring the drama. Finish this look off with a great clutch and a bold pair of earrings.
Put on some sneaks
The simplest (and my favorite) way of wearing the knitted dress? Put on a pair of white sneakers, wear very little jewelry, leave your hair down and look effortlessly chic.
Some of these tips may seem quite unconventional even to me, especially adding lace? That's such a cool idea! Would love to try this out with my knitted dress soon, which is essentially just an oversized sweater, lol.
