As Queenslander, my winter wardrobe is pretty limited. I have some jumpers and knits and a few essential jackets. That said, in Gympie, where I live, when winter shows up, it brings its A-game, which is good news if you want an excuse to experiment with some layers or jackets. Or in my case, a knit dress or two as your go-to winter outfit.
When it comes to heading out for dinner, backyard BBQs (yes, we still have those!) or even catching a movie, this is an outfit that won’t let you down. For me, it has been worth the investment in a few key dresses (like this one from last year) that I can throw on and be heading out the door. If you’ve been around here for a little while now, you know THAT is the most important thing to me.
The best part about this style of outfit is that you can add as many light layers as you need. For this hot mess of a woman, I find that I don’t need stockings or singlets under, but you totally could. I love jeans, and I couldn’t live without all my joggers and other pants, but there’s something about heading out for the night that brings out the dress wearer in me. I feel fancy immediately in a way I never really do in pants. Is that just me?
What’s your go-to winter night out outfit?
If you’re interested in this one, I’ve put links below. All but the exact boots are still available online at the time of publishing this. I mean, if you know me and my wardrobe, you know that’s not always the case. I’ve been eyeing off a few more knit dresses for this sort of occasion, so let me know in the comments if you want to see a wrap up (pun SO intended there) of more knit dresses like this one. Until then, more pics!
