Knit-Dresses to go!!
I love cosy, soft knit dresses and I have quite a collection of them that I have acquired over the years.
I’ve owned a couple of these three for ten years or so and they are not the latest fashion – but they fit with my eclectic style and I always feel comfortable and neat in them. In my previous life I may have worn the animal print one to work with opaque tights and a simple black blazer but I wouldn’t consider the other dresses work appropriate but ideal for an evening out or for the weekend.
You could wear such dresses with the trend of runners, but this is just not a trend I have embraced, although I make no judgement on those who love to wear them – live and let live is my philosophy.
It seems I love to add belts to all my knit dresses!! I also enjoyed the pops of red in the gloves, lipstick and lining of the cape to give the outfit a bit of oomph.
Relaxing Social Distancing!!
The numbers of people infected by COVID-19 in our state of New South Wales, Australia have reduced to under 10 a day. The national death rate total is 93 leading to social distancing restrictions being slightly eased and two people can visit in each other’s homes, amongst other measures.
It was a chilly day when we went to our next door neighbours place, 4 or 5 kilometres away, for lunch and I felt the knit dress was the perfect option. This was the first time I’d left the property since the beginning of March and I’m not going to lie that it felt very strange, in a good way…
I love this fabulous eighties fringe jacket and fishnet stockings to edge up my look!! This dress has a gorgeous rolled collar and I like the detail on the cuffs!
I felt the look came together with the tulle skirt underneath, fishnet stockings and fingerless gloves as well as the double belt detail. I always find this a very warm, heavy knit dress and the mesh details on the bodice and sleeves set it apart from any others in my wardrobe. There’s so many different types of knit dresses with so many cute details, that over the years I’ve found it hard to resist picking up yet another one!
Looks like my scarecrow – Russell (scare- Crowe) – approves!!
We’ve had a real cold snap with temperatures not much above 12°C or 14°C and thus a comfy knit dress is perfect!!
