Knit Dresses You Can Wear Now and Layer Later

We’re all still trying to enjoy summer. Even Kendall Jenner is taking the time to take it all in. And share it with us on Instagram. Recently, the in-demand model posted a pic of her sipping wine in a summery dress by burgeoning brand House of Sunny. Which admittedly got us longing for knit dresses in every shape, size and shade. But with fall steadily approaching, we were initially hesitant about spending money on anything we’ll have to pack away in a few weeks.

So when we started our search for the best knit dresses out there, we made sure to set our sights on the ones with the most staying power. In other words, ones that are super easy to layer. You know, dresses that work worn over a turtleneck or as part of a dress-and-pants combo. (This is definitely a situation where you want to size up.)

Knit dresses come in a couple of forms. You have the sweater-like variety that helps us stay cozy. Then there’s the ribbed design offering a chunkier effect. In both cases, we’re favoring the tank-style silhouette. Whether they feature slim or thick straps.
