A knitted dress will solve all of your fashion fails for lockdown 3.0 - trust us. For this lockdown, we're going hard for a jumper dress, a woolly, cosy frock. Comfy (hello, no waistband), warm and most importantly, Zoom-ready.
If you're perma-attached to your loungewear, switch your style with a sweatshirt dress or for an ultra-cosy outfit, reach for a wool dress and tights – it’s as cosy as wearing a blanket, but won't cause concern amongst your colleagues. Because lets be honest, we're at the point in lockdown now where comfort is key so we've scoured the high street for the coolest – and comfiest – winter dresses.
