How 3 Tastemakers Style a Knit Dress Throughout the Seasons

Further proof why you should add one to your personal style rotation.

The idea of creating a wardrobe that doesn't overtly pander to seasons is easier said than done. The key is to find items that you can, for the most part, wear year round. A knit dress is one of those staples that can be worn in both warm and cold climates—simply swap out your accessories. In the summer, opt for sandals and dainty accessories. Come winter, layer a jacket over the top of your dress and boots below it. And during those pesky transitional months, try a mixture of both—anything goes. Below, we've recreated three ensembles worn by some of the industry's most stylish that depict how to transition a knit dress through every season.

In between seasons of polarizing weather, experiment with different accessories like a pair of chunky Chelsea boots mixed with funky sunglasses. Top everything off with a chain to tie the whole thing together.

We love the way Precious Lee tones down the scarlet hue of her dress with neutral layers and accessories. A classic trench will never fail you, but amp up the volume with statement earrings and cat-eye sunglasses.

Strappy Sandals + Statement Bag

Embrace contrasting hues when the weather permits and clash blue, red, and green all within the same look. Simple jewelry provides the perfect finishing touch and helps to lower the volume of the colors.
