The joy of a versatile knitted dress, made sustainably
Ahh, knit dresses. These versatile garments tick two crucial boxes: they’re stylish and comfortable, a winning combination in our books. They’re also simple to style: slap on a knitted dress and a pair of sneakers for a cute yet casual look that is super low effort, or dress up your dress with heeled boots and a statement necklace as you head to an event. There’s something so elegant and endearing about these full-body gloves, and people in their complicated two or three-piece ensembles will surely look on with envy. When they ask you where you got your gorgeous get up, rather than muttering “SHEIN” under your breath, you can tell them all about one of these “Good” or “Great” brands below that are making sustainable knitted dresses worth talking about.
Forget the harmful polyester or conventional cotton lining the racks of fast fashion megastores, these knitted numbers are made from organic cotton like from Mila.Vert (Slovenia) and Dedicated (Sweden), or recycled deadstock fabric like from Altar (US) or The R Collective (Hong Kong). Go forth and find your fit.
