Lilla paisley-intarsia stretch-knit mini dress

Mary Katrantzou's signature paisley print is re-imagined in a bold bright-blue and emerald intarsia, giving this mini dress a retro feel. This flattering stretch-knit design is cut for a close fit through the bodice, falling to a slightly looser thigh-grazing skirt. It works just as well with classic pumps as it does with point-toe flats.

Open-knit wool mini dress

 Miu Miu's open-knit wool mini dress is an effortless piece you can wear now and into the cooler months. Made in Italy, this cream piece has a high neckline and ample stretch. Wear it with neutral pumps and a cross-body bag, switching to knee boots and a leather jacket when the temperature drops.

Cozy and chic sweater dressing is a key trend this season, and we love Stella McCartney's take on the look. This off-white wool-blend dress has been knitted in Italy with a chunky fisherman's rib texture. Replicate the runway look by layering yours over the label's tonal midi skirt.


Jani chenille-intarsia stretch-knit dress

Directing the focus to your shoulders and décolletage, Valentino's blackdress has been made in Italy with intricate lace panels - spun from luxuriously soft silk. This stretch-knit style also has a lightly flared hem to emphasize a narrow waist. We think it's a flawless choice for evening.


Stretch-knit dress

Victoria Beckham delivers a striking alternative to the typical LBD with this emerald dress. Cut from a figure-flattering stretch-knit, this style accentuates an hourglass silhouette and is lined in smooth silk. Adjust the two-way zipper at the back to create a split.
