Knitted Dresses (A girls best friend in winter)

Ladies, knit dresses are a girls best friend for winter. Well they're most certainly this girls best friend. But honestly, i can't recommend them enough.
So easy to wear and cosy and warm. like you've just rolled yourself in your duvet and called it an outfit.
I picked this khaki number up in Primark last week and its just the easiest thing to throw on and go.
Because of the length and its actually quite thick( for Primark)  i didn't wear tights, just some nice thick socks and my gorgeous new Steve Madden Biker Boots from Cloggs (which i looovvee by the way, be prepared to see them a whole lot, they're just perfect for going from dog walks to lunch to the school run!), meant i was toasty warm all day.
I was a little unsure about how clingy and figure hugging it would be on, which isn't really my thing- too many lumps and bumps need hiding.
If you're like me and like to hide a multitude of sins under your clothes (food babies, love handles, non-exercised limbs, you get the point) my advice regarding knit dresses is go for a chunky knit. The fine knit close fit dresses can be... well, clingy.
For me the chunkier knit the better the fit.

There are some fantastic options on the market this season, ranging in lengths and a plethora of gorgeous hues.  I'm in love with this one, colour, shape and length look fantastic.

I've been doing some knit dress research:
Take a gander at some of the most wonderful knitted dresses on the market:



I styled mine the simplest but most effective way i knew: Biker jacket, simple jewellery and a dash of leopard print! My favourite!
Speaking of leopard print, these Awesome leopard print bags are now on sale in the store here. I think i've found the perfect size leopard print bag. Plenty big enough for all my crap i carry around each day but can also be an oversized clutch too for a night out. 
Multifunctional bags are quite simply, the best. I have a real thing for nice handbags this year and this is going up there in my top 3!

  2. Hi Rachel
    Great minds think alike! I am wearing a sweater dress today as well, along with a leather jacket. I love yours, the pine green is gorgeous and a fav color. I love it styled with the jacket and cute booties. Looks super cozy too! Stop by if you can

  3. Gosh, that's from Primark? It's really gorgeous... I shall have to go and have a look! I do love that colour on you, green is a favourite of mine too. I actually tried on a Massimo Dutti knit dress at the weekend but it had really weird sleeves that just made the whole thing look like a sack. Shame because it was gorgeous on the hanger! Oh well, I shall just have to visit Primark ;)

  4. I totally agree with you on getting a chunkier knit for sweater dresses. I recently bought a thin knit sweater dress and will be returning it because it shows off to many of my lumpy lumps lol. I will definitely look into your great sweater dress as an alternative option for me. Also your clutch is so cute. I love that it has a strap.

  5. That sweater dress is stunning! I love the length and the olive color. I haven't tried out a knit dress yet but I am thinking I need to now.

  6. Yes, knit dresses are amazing! I love any kind of dress though. I'm totally crushing on your biker jacket though. Love the quilted look. Thanks for linking up with me this week. Hope to see you next Wednesday at Momfluence.
