It’s funny how life circumstances can change the clothes we wear. When I was in graduate school, my regular uniform was a blazer, tee shirt, and high waisted jeans, or a blouse and high waisted jeans. As soon as I got pregnant, all my high waisted jeans had to be folded away, and I’ve been looking for an alternative uniform for my more professional endeavors.
Enter the knit dress. Thick enough for aggressive air conditioning but stretchy enough to accommodate a growing waistline. The knit dress has been my workwear staple since I put my high waisted jeans away since it works with high heels, with strappy sandals, and even with a pair of classic white sneakers. Knit dresses are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can have in your wardrobe.
One of my favorite knit dresses is this classic fit and flare sweater dress from Tommy Hilfiger. Tommy Hilfiger is such a classic American brand, and this dress embodies the Tommy vibe so well. From the classic navy color and flattering pleats, to the red and white stripes, this dress is as Americana as you can get!
