11 knitted dresses that are in equal measure chic and cosy for winter

Posted by for Fashion

A knitted dress is not only a big hitter for winter, but also one of the easiest wardrobe staples to add to your repertoire. We’ve rounded up the best ones out there to wear now and for the months to come. 

It always gets to this time of year when we stop and stare at our wardrobes. We of course aren’t ready to switch to summer threads and sandals yet, but the idea of thick jumpers and stomper boots for the foreseeable is getting a bit tiresome. And that’s why now is the perfect time to take on a hybrid wardrobe staple, one that is equal measure chic as it is cosy and one of the biggest trends across all seasons: the knitted dress. 

Now, this isn’t knitted dresses as you have known them before. It’s not a jumper dress, or an elongated roll neck. No, this season’s knitted dress is more pared-back and all-in all easier to wear. 

Commonly ribbed and sitting midi length, the neckline on the knitted dress varies from chic square neck to a classic V-neck. It’s fitted to the body but can flare out at the bottom and half and is anything but black.

The Jacqemus’ runway thigh-split knitted dress seen on Kylie Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Jeanne Damas is the OG knitted dress, and Zara’s summer hit of a vest-like version meant the popularity of the knitted dress has only risen. Take on the trend now with a pair of chunky boots and later in the year with sandals and a straw bag. 

From neutral classics to bold styles, we’ve rounded up the best knitted dresses to see you through the season and beyond.
