pleated sweater dress

This knit dress caught my eye the other day. The classic, straight design reminds me of the ’20s: the pleated details give the impression of a dropped waist. I adore the hint of red on the sleeves and on the neckline. The only thing I wasn’t too crazy about is the super delicate fabric. Knit dress means to me cozy and autumn, hence I expect a certain thickness. This dress has such a delicate fabric that I actually had goose bumps when the wind was blowing. I do get cold easily, and for that reason the fabric doesn’t work for me on chillier days without any layering.

This particular dress is only available in XS online, but I found a couple other very similar options HERE and HERE if you are interested in trying out this simple yet classic style.

    I love this dress, it’s very very much my style. It’s so cute and it gives you a useful look. For me it is too short to wear it with any type of heel so I’d add some navy or red ballet flats and a crossbody bag. It has a back-to-school, autumn vibe but XS doesn’t do it for me so I’ll try the other options you suggested.
