Fall fashion: Knitted dress trends: These styles are among the must-haves for 2023

Knitted dresses have been around longer than many people think: as early as the 1960s and 1970s, fine or coarse-meshed materials such as cotton, polyacrylic, viscose or wool were used to make warm clothes for cold days. And back then, strong colors and graphic patterns were very popular with wearers - as were turtlenecks. The only difference was that most knitted dresses were cut very short, whereas today long models and oversized looks dominate the world's catwalks. However, depending on the manufacturer, the length, cut and knitting pattern can still vary. Below we will tell you which fashion trends are popular again (or again) this autumn.

While knitted dresses used to be often body-hugging to emphasize the female silhouette, many women today prefer the so-called oversize look: loose cuts that do not hug the body - but rather hide the silhouette. It's less about an inferiority complex and more about the desire to wear something comfortable. In addition, large knitted dresses allow more space for other items of clothing underneath to keep the body warm on cold days. And if we're honest, what ultimately matters is that we feel good about what we're wearing. It is therefore hardly surprising that the oversize look is one of the knitted dress trends.

Although it is said that coarse stitches can be bulky, there is a large selection of (fine mesh) knitted dresses for curvy women. To hide the hips but emphasize the waist, A-line or straight cuts and dark colors are good choices. If you would rather distract from the middle of your body, you can draw attention to your neckline - with eye-catching patterns, ruffles or applications. Midi dresses can even stretch the figure visually, and when combined with seamless underwear or shapewear, the knitted dress can also fit tighter - without being bulky. So you can perfectly showcase your feminine curves this fall.

Just in time for the golden season, there are many models in autumn tones or with autumnal decor: the current knitted dress trends for 2023 primarily include Norwegian patterns, block stripes and also checked patterns. The color palette, on the other hand, ranges from rust brown and burgundy red to olive green and ocher through mustard yellow and beige to midnight blue and gray. Whether coarse or fine knitting is up to personal taste. And of course there are knitted dresses in an autumn look for every figure type - and also oversize versions. As soon as the temperatures drop and the evenings get cooler, the warm items of clothing will keep you fashionably through the cold season (and beyond).

Since coarse knit patterns look more cozy and casual, they embody the ideal leisure look. For (more conservative) everyday office life, however, tight-knit dresses are the better choice as they look more elegant and subtle. Plain colors such as anthracite, black or beige are just as suitable as classic gray tones. And blue knitted dresses also underline the business look. It doesn't matter whether it's fine cotton or viscose - there are even chic models made from real wool. And patterns such as stripes or checks also provide plenty of variety in the office. However, be careful not to combine too many colors or patterns with each other, otherwise your look can appear uneasy.
