Belle’s Closet: Tinley Road Knit Dress


Asymmetrical Wrap Knit Dress ($158)

Tinley Road has some nice pieces right now, but this knit dress immediately caught my eye.  I loved the marled color palette and the draped skirt.  I also like that I can wear it bare-legged now and with tights in a few weeks.  I also like it with a belt to re-emphasize the waist.  It’s the kind of versatile piece that you reach for when you have a closet full of nothing to wear.

Tinley Road also has this navy drape dress, which is a great option for dinners out or after work cocktails.  I also like this vegan leather dress in graphite if you’re looking for something more unique.  And if you’re looking for a cardigan to keep at your desk for chilly indoor conditions, this cocoon sweater in cotton-blend looks cozy.

    The heathered fabric of that dress is great! It looks super comfy too.

    Had never heard of Tinley Road until now..have to check them out..but not a huge fan of the ruching in this dress, gives an illusion of being pregnant on this model, when she probably isnt? Or it could be just me..

      Hah, I had the same exact thought! I think it might just be a weird angle/bad photo shopping. Usually ruching is great for hiding stuff.

    I’m confused by what appears to be the exact same dress by a different designer, Ivy + Blu:

    Am I crazy?

    Ruching at the waist, will emphasize a tummy if you have one. Often we think that ruching will hide but it does the opposite and especially on this marled fabric.
