In another blog post I talked about how the ribbed sweater can look very elegant and cozy if you style it right. Today I’m going to talk about something very similar that is even more ladylike, namely the ribbed dress. Most ribbed dresses are shaped like a figure-hugging knitted sweater dress. The ribbed details simply make the outfit more attractive and elegant. Styling the ribbed dress is actually very simple. To make it even easier for you, I’ve rounded up some of the best ribbed dress ideas. Let’s dive in.
Knee-length dress with ribbed camel and denim jacket
As mentioned earlier, a ribbed dress is usually a bodycon sweater dress, so you automatically look ladylike and restrainedly sexy as you can show off your curves without showing a lot of skin. As an example of a simple and feminine outfit, you can wear a knee-length camel rib dress. Pair it with a denim jacket to add some style. Finish off the outfit neatly with pink pointed toe heels.
Gray figure-hugging midi tank rib dress
To achieve a low-key sexy and minimalist look, all you need to do is choose a sleeveless bodycon dress and pair it with heels. For example, you can just wear a gray bodycon ribbed midi dress. Pair it with black pointy toe heels and a white leather handbag to look classy and attractive.
Gray two-piece, short-sleeved, ribbed dress with a mock neckline
If you are one of those people who love to have sophisticated details in their outfits, then here is one that you might like. I would call this dress a fake two piece dress because the top and bottom of the dress actually touch without showing any skin in between. Either way, it’s a gray, short-sleeved, ribbed dress with a high collar that is paired with light gray pointy toe heels for an elegant look.
Pink Midi Shape Fitting Long Sleeve Sweater Dress
If you have a very feminine character, this pink outfit should suit you pretty well. To shape this outfit, you can simply wear a pink, figure-hugging midi long-sleeved rib dress. For the shoes, you can wear dark gray suede ankle boots with open toes to give the outfit a particularly feminine touch.
Gray halter neck skinny fit mini rib dress
While this figure-hugging, ribbed mini dress with gray halter neck doesn’t sound particularly sexy on paper, it looks extremely sexy because of the short and slim fit. The halter neck design also lets you show lots of shoulders and skin in this area. To complete the outfit in style, you can wear black leather ankle boots.
Long sleeve midi color block shift dress
While most of the ribbed dresses you can find can be body hugging dresses, here is a more relaxed midi dress with a more relaxed cut. In detail, this is a long-sleeved color-block midi shift rib dress. You can simply pair it with black open toe heels with ankle straps to complete the outfit with elegance.
Gray long-sleeved mini dress with V-neck and slit
For a more casual or even a little sportier look, here is an outfit that looks great and is easy to take off. The gray mini rib dress with V-neck is here a shift dress instead of a figure-hugging dress. With the slit detail, the dress looks both refreshing and reservedly sexy. Wear a pair of black and white sneakers to complete this youthful look.
Gray maxi trench coat with a white ribbed mini sweater dress
Here is a layered outfit that can make you look tall and slim. To achieve this look, you can wear a white ribbed bodycon mini dress. Wear a maxi-length gray trench coat on top to make your legs look longer and slimmer. Pair these pieces with black suede boots for an elegant touch to complete the outfit.
Navy Mock Neck Midi Dress with Crew Socks & Heels
For a more mature look, you can try this outfit which uses a dark navy and black color combination. Just to make things clear, looking mature has nothing to do with age. It basically means looking balanced and relatively serious. Be sure to wear a navy ribbed midi dress with black round stockings and black pointed toe heels to achieve this look.
Two-piece midi sweater dress with a gray turtleneck sweater
For those of you who have done a lot of work to keep in shape, this two-piece midi rib dress with gray turtle is a great way to subtly show off your slender waistline. To complete this outfit in a simple and neat way, you can wear a pair of light pink pointy toe heels.
Heather Gray Mini Flared Ribbed Dress
This is a fairly rare rib dress that is not made of knitwear. It is a heather gray, flared mini dress that looks airy and youthful mainly due to its cut. To create a casual and refreshing look in the dress, you can wear either white sneakers or nude sandals to complete the outfit.
Gray ribbed cold shoulder sweater dress
For those of you who have beautiful skin, there is a good chance you have nice shoulders. To show them off in a subtle way, you can wear a gray ribbed mini sweater dress with cold shoulders. Pair them with black suede boots to make the outfit more stylish and feminine.
Black turtleneck midi rib dress
Here is a very simple outfit idea. To achieve this, you can simply wear a black turtleneck midi sweater dress with a pair of black pointy toe heels. While this is a simple, all-black outfit that doesn’t look special at first glance, using black can make you look slim and tall.
Green halter neck mini rib sweater dress
For a refreshing and youthful look, you can simply wear a green halter neck ribbed mini dress. Pair the dress with white sandals to make the outfit extra refreshing.
Black strapless, figure-hugging mini rib dress
For a chic and eye-catching look, you can wear a black strapless ribbed mini dress. Pair it with a denim jacket and a silver, sparkling collar. For the shoes, you can wear a pair of black ballerinas to give the outfit a feminine and elegant touch.
Hope you enjoy the ribbed dress ideas I just shared with you above. Some of these outfits are cut quite slim. You may have to work a little to get in shape. I hope this can be a good motivation for you.
