Knit dresses don't have to be the sole property of eighties influenced fashion on the high street today, thanks to the increasing number of boutique brands found in our chain stores. Small British brand Apricot features in New Look now, with desirable pieces like this Knitted Dress.
Featuring a fairisle pattern, the dress combines a relaxed folk style with a feminine touch thanks to the short hemline. The bell sleeves, pockets and wide collar all combine to create a stylish folk style inspired by the early seventies, easily worn on its own or over trousers for a more relaxed look.
