TURN UP THE HEAT


You’ve got to love these Aussie winters - where it’s crisp enough for the classic ankle boot/coat combo, but still warm enough to wear a dress.  Well… at least a long sleeve, high-neck, woolly knit dress! 

Knit dresses are so on trend this season and every woman needs at least one in her closet.  As for us?  Well, we’ve got a few… hundred.  Ha ha!  No but seriously, we’ve got at least four or five.  Why? Because they’re just so incredibly versatile (not to mention stylish, comfortable and totally flattering…) Think about it – one basic knit dress can be paired with sneakers and sunnies for a sporty-luxe look, boots and a blazer for a bit of business chic or even heels and clutch for a night out with the girls.  Bam - three outfits – one dress.  Talk about getting bang for your buck!

So here is a recent find of ours that we picked up at Rockmans for just $59.99. We know, we can't get over the price either. Considering it’s a hands down favourite style and colour and fabric, saying we’re stoked would be an understatement.  We just love the way the cosy, ribbed fabric hugs your body and flatters your silhouette, whilst the long slim sleeves and turtleneck keep it super chic. 

The thing that really caught our attention with this dress though was the colour.  Because in our opinion, high necks and wooly knits aren’t the only way to keep warm this winter.  In keeping with this seasons 70’s revival trend, we’ve been turning up the heat with sunset-inspired hues like rust, beige, mustard and brown.  So you can see why this burnt orange number was the obvious choice. 

Here, we’ve paired our new knit dress with black suede ankle boots and a black shoulder bag with a gold chain. There’s something about this colour combo that just makes our fashion-loving heart skip a beat.  A bit of 70’s nostalgia perhaps?  Or maybe it’s the way it flatters any complexion.  Either way, we’re in love!  

You already know how much we love the basics at Rockmans, but this is an example of one of the amazing fashion pieces that we’ve been finding lately as well.  And it doesn’t stop at the knit dresses.  Rockmans has a whole range of stylish skirts, chic maxi’s, fashion-forward tops and cosy coats and knitwear.  We’ve been stocking up like crazy this season… it’s safe to say they know our faces by now in store, ha ha!

On top of the impressive diversity of their range, we can't go past the super affordable prices, which is one of the reasons we keep going back.

Check out the Rockmans website or head in store today to check out some of their amazing range for yourself.
