How To Style A Knit Dress

However, stylists and fashion magazines now enable knit dresses to stand out even in warmer climates. Knits used to be seasonal staples, but now they are an all-year-round fashion must-have.

Indeed, knits are a favorite among many women due to their subtle elegance and refinement, which is why they belong in the luxury clothing line of some known brands.

Knit dresses are versatile enough to be worn day to night, making them easy to style, alter, and match with various fashion accessories. Getting it right can help you ace that entire knit ensemble and have that perfect balance look.

Learn how to wear a knit dress, no matter the season or the occasion, with these style tips.

Knit Maxi Dress + Long Boots + A Matching Bag

The first way to style your knit dress is when you’re dressing up for autumn. This is the start of boots season, so it’s time to let your long boots take the spotlight as well.

Long boots are the ideal complement to that knit maxi dress. Even though your legs will be hidden, the length of the boots will draw attention away from your legs and emphasize your feet, making you appear taller.

To complete the look, pair it with a bag that matches the tone of your boots. However, to avoid looking bulky, you should stick to carrying smaller bags for this reason.

Mini Knitted Dress + Knee-High Boots

A knitted mini dress is the total opposite of the knit maxi. While the weather permits it, show off your legs, and don’t be too wrapped up yet. You can ooze sexiness with a nice pair of knee-high boots to finish the look.

If you’re dressing up for an even warmer season like spring, you can do without the knee-high boots. Your colored or printed flats can now have their spotlight moment since the knit is already plain. Additionally, don't forget your accessories, as spring is all about layering colorful and simple accessories.

Ribbed Dress + Flip-Flops

As mentioned earlier, knits are no longer just for the cooler months. Those living in warmer, tropical countries can now indulge as thinner knits can still look wonderful despite the heat.

Suppose you’re off to a casual day of errands or the beach. A ribbed knit dress is good to wear with a pair of sandals or flip-flops. If you want to go all out with accessories, top off your look with a beach hat to finish off that summer look you’re after.

Knit Dress + Leather Jacket

A leather jacket is always a no-fail to spice up any look. Go with the classic route and wear    a black leather jacket. 

Depending on your plans for the day, you may still wear boots if you want, but they should be black to match your jacket. Another option is to dress down the ensemble by replacing the boots with a pair of white sneakers for a more casual look.

Go All Black

Black is a very flattering color, making you look slimmer and taller. If you have a black knit dress waiting to be worn, take it out as soon as winter begins and combine it with black leather boots. 

Black is also quite formal, so this is a combination that’s safe to wear for the office as well. To break the monotony of wearing only black, you can opt to use a colored bag if you have one. Otherwise, a black leather bag is a safe choice, in keeping with the clean and formal look.

Sweater Dress + Heels

Who says heels can’t go with a sweater dress? This combination is another one for the office, particularly if you’re also off to a dinner party after. It's the perfect outfit to take you through the whole day, as your heels elevate your look even more.

For the best fashion combination, this goes best with pleated knits or one with a flowy or skirt-like cut. Body-hugging knits should be avoided when pairing with stilettos. Otherwise, it’ll cross the line between formal and classy and too seductive for the office.

Final Style Tips

With the style tips mentioned above, you may now transform your knit outfits from a casual and lazy look to something more put-together and glamorous. Gone are the days when knitwear was looked upon as drab. Leave those unflattering sweaters at home so that every time you leave, you seem as fashionable in knits as any elegant woman. The secret is to accessorize, mix and match different pieces, and glam up your knits so that your knit dresses may become your go-to ensemble for any occasion.
