It’s time to reconsider the jumper dress. A tried and tested cold-weather staple, this cosy essential has been refreshed for AW18, with simple yet effective shapes, cool colours and modern design touches. Want to know more? Here are the five knitted dresses you’ll wear all winter.
1. Easy Does It
Throw on and go: a cosy jumper dress provides the perfect style solution for off-duty days this winter. The key to making it look effortless? Opt for a simple silhouette that feels like a slightly longer version of your cold-weather knits – we like how this piece comes in a soft cream hue. Wear it with opaque tights and over-the-knee boots in black, adding a hint of warm colour with a luxe leather shopper bag in rich burgundy.
2. Flare Out
Accentuating the narrowest part of your frame, the fit-and-flare dress is one of the most form-flattering shapes out there. To make it feel relevant for AW18, choose a knitted style in the classic colour combination of black and white, styling it with semi-sheer tights and lace-up ankle boots. Add a hero coat for a look that’s chic enough to go from nine till nine.
3. In Burgundy
Burgundy falls into favour every autumn and winter – and this season is proving to be no exception. Bring the key colour into your cold-weather wardrobe with a knitted midi dress to wear from work to the weekend, complete with a roll-neck design to keep you cosy as the weather turns even chillier. Team with tights, Western-style boots and, for a fashion-forward finish, a cord baker boy hat in the same berry shade.
4. The Minimalist
If your style aesthetic reads lees is more, look no further than the minimalist midi dress. Comfortable and rich with cotton, this knitted navy number conveys a sense of cool, from its loose-fit dolman sleeves to the wrap-around waist tie. Keep to the pared-back palette with suede stretch boots, also in navy.
5. Cosy Comfort
As temperatures fall even further, it’s time to reach for the thickest, cosiest knits in our wardrobes – and this jumper dress most certainly makes the cut. Featuring a speckled nep knit, this roll-neck design is stylish and sumptuously soft to the touch, making it an essential for cold, wintery weather. Venturing outside? Ankle boots and a baker boy hat are all the accessories you need.
