Another day, another jumper dress...

If it wasn't for jumper dresses I would live in my skinny jeans!  I do love wearing dresses but it's hard to find any that are suitable for daywear without feeling too formal. Jumper dresses are the perfect staple to have in your wardrobe as they bridge the gap perfectly between smart and casual wear. I especially love that you don't have to think about an outfit - just throw on with tights and boots and you're good to go! I like mine to be a bit slouchy for a more dressed down look and to be a decent length - a definite dress as opposed to a long jumper! Another bonus is that they are such a comfortable and cosy thing to wear on these endless cold, wet days we are having.

Top of my list is the Hush Rosie Dress which I have featured in a previous blog. I have it in the navy/marine colourway and it looks like a jumper over a little silky skirt but the skirt is attached. It is so easy to wear and incredibly comfortable but very chic at the same time. It is now reduced to £40 from £60.



Here are some other knitted dresses that I like:

Whistles Cashmere Dress



A knitted dress in a dark colour is such a useful item to have in your wardrobe and this one would be a great investment for next autumn/winter. It can easily take you from day to night as you can wear it to work during the day with a scarf and boots and then dress up with jewellery to go out in the evening. And this one is pure cashmere, reduced from £165 to £85.

Staying with darker colours for the moment, I love this one from ASOS with the elasticated waistband and textured design. Perfect if you prefer a jumper dress with more shape.


The monochome trend is huge this spring and I love this striking stripy dress below from Coast, which is perfect for the transitional season.

Coast Tabbie Knit Dress £75



The dress below from Karen Millen is stunning in the flesh and the fine knit means it's definitely one for spring. It looks very understated and I love the soft faux leather detailing at the shoulders. It can be worn in two different ways - the front drape can be fastened at the waist to create a soft draped knit dress, or you can leave it to fall for a more simplistic style. 


Karen Millen Modern Knit Dress £115


If you like bold colours then this fabulous knit dress below is perfect for spring. I love the rippled texture of the material and the three quarter length sleeves

Karen Millen Ripple Stitch Knit dress £130





And one to wear with tanned legs in the summer - the  ASOS Striped Breton Jumper Dress £35. I have already made clear my love for all things 'Breton' and this fine knit dress really caught my eye with the cute star patches on the sleeves.



Not many outfits to show you from this week as I have been mainly in gym stuff or zipped into my Parka trying to dodge the rain. Here is one from a couple of days ago when it was a freezing cold day and I had to wear a big fluffy jumper to stay warm on the school run:
