Fall may be here but the temperature still seems to have some catching up to do. Unfortunately, it’s weather like this which makes getting dressed in the morning even more difficult. Struggling with what to wear? We suggest you take on the upcoming season in a textured transitional piece that works for every body type and budget: the rib knit dress.
