There are so many things fashion writers would have you believe are ‘must have’ items, and we all know they’re usually anything but. A perennial classic, though, is the woolen dress for winter, and its one that at least makes sense year upon year.
This simple but stylish wool shift dress by J. Crew is a chic, pinafore style that’s most likely to be wearably stylish for years to come, if not always. The simple, high necked bodice contrasted with a fuller kneelength skirt, gives a demure look that’s fully grown up past the classroom.
