5 Ways to Wear a Black Knit Dress

A classic black knit dress is one of our top wardrobe essentials that we reach for all year round. Of course, a true essential needs to tick all our boxes - it needs to be effortless, understated yet chic, and above all versatile so we can wear it on repeat and still feel excited every time we put it on.

One dress which ticks all the boxes is this season's Rita Dress by Marle. Cut with a wide rib that elongates and flatters the body, and made from a soft and breathable supima cotton and merino blend, this dress is perfect on its own in the warmer months, or layered with knitwear or a coat when it gets cooler.

While the options for styling this beautiful dress are endless, here are 5 ways to wear a black knit dress, that take you across all the seasons. 

5 Ways to Wear a Black Knit Dress

Look 1

Wearing it on its own.

Don't underestimate how chic this black knit dress is paired back and worn on its own. With its clean lines and flattering silhouette it's a stand out that can easily be elevated with a earring and heels or played down with your go-to summer sandals

Look 2

Throw on a Classic Denim Jacket.

A no brainer, and will instantly work for weekends and running errands. Complete this look with sandals or white sneakers. 

Look 3 

Layer an open white shirt.

Think of your shirts as a lightweight jacket and your wardrobe instantly expands. We love styling our shirting over a figure hugging dress when we want or need a little extra coverage. It also works as a great sun safe option in summer and just what you need when the sun goes down and you need a light layer to keep warm.

Layer with a T-shirt 

We love how you can turn a staple black knit dress into a what appears to be a skirt and top. The tip it to work with a necklace as similar as possible so you're not seeing any lines come through. We simply tied the excess material at the front of the tee into a knot and tucked it under for a streamlined finish.

Throw on your favourite Classic Coat 

Without a doubt this is a go-to winter look we've come to rely on. Comfortable while also being effortlessly chic. Look for a longer length coat that work with midi dresses so the hems work together cohesively.
