Every Chic Person I Know Wants to Wear This Cosy Dress Style for Winter

In my opinion, a winter capsule wardrobe only really needs a few key items. First and foremost is a reliable jumper. Next, the perfect slouchy wool trousers. And last but not least, a knitted dress. Of all of the knitted dresses available on the market—and trust me, there are many—I can't help but come back to a slightly chunky, slightly oversized cable-knit dress. In a supremely comfortable cut and effortlessly chic finish, there's truly nothing I'd rather reach for on a brisk winter morning, especially if I'm in a rush and need to pull on something easy. Styled with thick tights and knee-high boots when the weather is at its worst, or with kitten heels and lashings of jewellery when heading out for the night, this versatile number has become somewhat of a wardrobe hero amid my winter rotation.
