Now, they’re all over your Instagram.






Safe to say, last February when we were watching the AW20 shows, none of us anticipated we’d be spending quite as much time considering comfort when it comes to getting dressed. Yet, if you’re joggered out or you’ve reached your loungewear peak, consider the knitted dress loungewear’s stylish, equally snug sister.

The best thing about it is of course the benefit of all throw-on dresses; they make getting dressed so much easier. Some day, you’ll wear them again with knee high boots, gold chains and a blazer, but for now, you’re probably just going to be styling with socks and maybe an especially fancy Zoom earring. They’re extra cozy so you’ll go from desk to couch without having to do a wardrobe change in between, plus they’ll keep you warm if you’re venturing out for a walk. Right now, you’ll find a knitted dress in all shapes and sizes, prints and colours, just keep it oversized for extra comfort. It’s the perfect working from home dress.
