How To Style A Knit Dress

It's the effortless essential you need this season... The knit dress! With its natural allure and easy elegance, a knitted dress is soft and cosy but still polished. Its year-round stability and day-to-night versatility makes this piece a worthwhile investment.

Whether you’re going to brunch with friends or getting dolled up for a date night, a knitted dress is an easy option that requires little effort but is sure to impress. At Ally Fashion we stock the hottest collection, from mini to maxi styles, so you can shop your perfect shape and size. This helpful guide will show you how to wear our knit dresses from summer to spring!

What Is A Knit Dress?

A knitted dress combines all the comfort of a soft knit with the glamour of a dress. Just like a normal knit jumper, it is crafted with a yarn of thread, which is repeatedly looped to form a garment. It results in a dress that is stretchy and wrinkle resistant.

How To Style Midi Knit Dresses

From nice lunches to evening events, the midi length has you covered. It is popular for its effortless chic look and versatility.

Wear it in the summer with low-cut sneakers and a tote bag while heading to the beach or running errands. Alternatively, elevate the look with heeled sandals and minimal jewellery.

For the cooler months, pop on a long sleeve dress with long boots and a leather bag. This smart look will take you from a day in the office to your Friday night dinner reservations.

What Shoes To Wear With A Knit Dress

A show-stopping outfit is all in the accessories! Some statement jewellery or a pair of heels can dramatically change your look to suit the occasion. Here’s the range of shoes we are loving to pair with our knitted dresses this season.

Sneakers

Channel an edgy, street style by teaming your knits with low-cut sneakers. Add a pair of retro sunnies and you’ve got the perfect casual off-duty look for the weekend.

Strappy Heels

Wondering what shoes to wear with a long knit dress? A pair of high heels is a sure-fire way to elevate your frock for a dressy occasion and help lift the hem off the ground.

Boots

Knit dresses and boots are the perfect combo for winter. A mini or midi looks super chic paired with long heeled boots, while a maxi and ankle boots are a match made in heaven!

Sandals

From beach days to casual brunches, sandals are the ideal footwear option for summer. Slide on a pair of sandals with a short sleeve knit dress or sleeveless mini!

How To Wear A Knit Dress In Winter

It's the year-round staple every wardrobe needs! While knit dresses in summer look totally chic with high heels, refined jewellery and a leather handbag, this elegant piece can also be styled for winter. Try these four fashion tips this season:

1. Swap the open-toe heels out for knee-high boots and throw on a trench coat - you're guaranteed to look stunning while remaining cosy and warm!
2. Layer it up - layer a sleeveless frock over a turtleneck top or long sleeved top for an edgy yet modest look.
3. For added warmth, opt for a long sleeve knitted dress in a midi or maxi length. A turtleneck knit dress will also keep you warm while exuding sophistication.
4. For an off-duty look while grabbing your morning coffee or running errands, pop on a rib knit dress with a logo sweater draped over your shoulders. Dial up the practicality with a cross body bag and chunky sneakers.

How To Stretch A Knit Dress

Have you bought a knit dress that’s just a little too tight? Good news. Knit fibres like cotton and wool are the easiest materials to stretch out! Try soaking or spraying them, pulling the fabric, and air-drying them. Ingredients like shampoo, baking soda and vinegar can help to loosen the fabric fibres and make the garments easier to stretch.
