BEAUTIFUL NEUTRAL KNIT
I love this chic fitted ribbed-style knit dress that works so well for both work and play.
The button-down feature allows you to wear it buttoned up for a work context or it can be kept open for after hours.
Versatility Is The Way To Go!
As with the other outfits I’ve featured on here in the past, there’s any number of ways that you can get wear out of all of the individual garments in your wardrobe.
The tan boots and the little brown leather bag, together with the cropped faux suede jacket, gives this an edgy vibe which is always an aesthetic I’m attracted to!
In fact, I’ve started a YouTube channel called Donna Walmsley, Work Your Wardrobe https://youtu.be/ggsPUd_4fLI that has practical videos that cover exactly this issue.
Now in my video I show this same dress paired with black Chelsea boots and a moto jacket and also glammed up for an evening outfit! So head over and take a look!
Black Knit – puffed sleeve detail ..
Now this little number is quite different from the first dress pictured because it’s quite roomy and a generally fuller cut, made from a soft furry knit that isn’t scratchy at all, full puffed bishop sleeves and a mock crew neck.
I added the white shirt underneath for a work context, patterned tights and Chelsea boots, a wide belt to cinch in the waist and a beret. I was really happy with how this look worked.
The full puffed bishop sleeve is very ontrend, and I love it because I have lymphodoema from breast cancer surgery three years ago, and it ensures this dress is very comfortable – doubly so with the Chelsea boots which was perfect for a full day on my feet, doing lots of walking and standing.
Go! Go! Accessories!
Over the years I’ve collected my share of accessories: leather gloves, berets/hats, interesting boots, patterned tights and different width and buckled belts – and I make sure I wear them as often as I can. Unfortunately (or not) in Australia we have a very short winter so I try to get those things in when I can!
In this outfit I’ve incorporated my beret, my cool Chelsea boots, black leather gloves and patterned tights with a retro 1950’s style coat that has loose three quarter dolman sleeves to comfortably fit the thick bishop style sleeves.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my discussion of neutral knit dresses and that you will pop over and visit me on YouTube! https://youtu.be/ggsPUd_4fLI
