Knitted dresses and tunics

Sleeveless Dress

Sleeveless Dress

This sophisticated style simulates a skirt and top. The classic top boasts amazing details - crossed straps at the back and a zipper at the front for more decollete. Tough, high boots add a rock music note! By the way, for a sexy look, turn the dress back to front - the crossed straps become the perfect halter neck.

Size: 36/38.

Two-Tone Knit Dress

Knit Turtleneck Dress

Dress with yoke, turtleneck and knit-in pockets looks like it's two pieces, but it's not. The sleeveless dress has been knitted into the design. A complete look, which stands by itself but can also be stylishly combined with a full length slitted skirt.
