Every season I get determined to find the perfect knit (sweater) dress. Fitted but not too fitted, warm-but because I don’t live in a super cold climate- not too cold. I’ve had several knit dresses (and have loved them all), but there’s something about this knit dress. And the kicker? It’s not modern.
This modern knit is really from the 60s (I got it from TakeMeBackBaby, you might remember the other stunner I have from there this polka dot dress!). Wearing it I feel not only modern, but sexy, in control, chic, and put together. It’s both sexy librarian and date night appropriate. A dress that can do all of that? A modern knit dress indeed.
I know, I know, a knit (Sweater) dress and boots are so cliche, but I love to think that anything that can shake that up is worth while. Maybe it’s a necklace? (This one I vintage Monet) Or maybe it’s the unexpected- kitten heels with snake skin boots, or a knit dress that’s a bit fitted or with pockets! Either way, there is something about taking a tried and true formula and making it new, or modern knit as it were.
What’s your go-to formula for knit dresses? And how do they make you feel? Knit dresses are such a basic for me, and yet I can’t resist making them new year after year. For you, what makes something modern? What are you looking for in a knit dress? There are so many modern takes on the sweater dress, and yet, clearly the knit dress is something you can also buy vintage- and have look modern!
