KNITWEAR IS NOT ONLY SWEATERS AND CARDIGANS. A couple of years ago, brands advocating for a "new femininity" introduced a fashion for knitted suits and dresses, which does not subside today. It is not surprising: after all, this is a practical, warm and pleasant material for the body, and a dress made of it is an ideal thing for the cold season. It goes well with flats, coats and down jackets. Texture has replaced floral prints this fall, so we chose eight ribbed options.
While you shouldn't expect fantastic materials from Zara, this dress is composed of 72% viscose and 28% nylon, which is not too bad. The contrasting collar and sleeves with white trim make it look boring; if desired, the latter can be hidden. This model looks best with coarse lace-up boots, white sneakers or ankle boots.

A tight dress with slits on the shoulders of the French brand Maje will appeal to those who do not like a loose silhouette and who are not close to the trend for huge sizes. The noble graphite color is combined with everything in the world: it would look especially interesting with thin tights of the same shade or fishnet tights. The dress itself can be machine washed.
Asymmetry, distortion of shapes, hypertrophied volumes are what Jacquemus is associated with in the first place. At the same time, do not forget that the brand also has excellent basic things that may well suit those who prefer simplicity to a complex cut. This dress is exactly that. Slits on the sleeves, high neck, unusual pastel color - in addition to the ultra-short length, it is good for everyone. However, this can hardly be called a minus, since if desired, it can be worn with wide trousers.
At first glance, it may seem that this dress is more suitable for a seaside holiday, but we would insist to take a closer look at it. This model is an excellent basis for multi-layered looks. With high boots, a sweater, a liner and a jacket, it can be worn in the winter, and with espadrilles in the summer. In addition, it will definitely not fall apart and will not stretch out after one season.
The Mango dress can be purchased in two colors - navy blue and green; the latter, in our opinion, looks more advantageous. Another model for those who do not see themselves in oversized sweaters. It is better to complement such tight things with something simple or sporty - a quilted jacket or a loose shirt, and choose ordinary sneakers as shoes.
The most expensive dress in the collection is a cheerful yellow color, which will be literally everywhere next spring. Its strength lies in a complex shade, which, unfortunately, is often only possible for expensive brands, and an unusual cut, thanks to which the lower part is made in the form of pleats. It will look especially impressive with minimalistic decorations.
& Other Stories
Despite the fact that the dress is already sold out on the website of the Swedish brand, it may well end up in the flagship store. Free, relatively light and practical, this can be worn both in a feast and in the world. If, due to the slits and short sleeves, it does not seem very suitable for the cold, pay attention to the cardigan dresses of the Russian brand MIR Stores, which are available in a similar color. Perhaps they are not so versatile because of the massive buttons, but otherwise they are no worse.
COS are known for their cocoon-shaped pieces, which can be dresses and sweaters at the same time. In the new collection of the brand there is such a model made of merino wool: you can choose for a long time between practical black and unusual dusty pink colors. He is perfect in a pair of culottes or regular tights. And the brand now has a cashmere dress that resembles a waffle towel in texture.
