The handy adaptability of a knee length dress can make it the traveler’s best friend. Knee length dresses are great for smaller cruises and can be worn for many more occasions than a longer or shorter garment. A knee length dress can provide an entire day of dressing with one wash. Wash and wear knee length dresses can comprise a woman’s wardrobe where dressing is conservative and people don’t care to make extreme fashion statements.
A knee length dress is only out of style when prevailing fashion winds rules that some kind of extreme short or long length of skirt is de rigueur. This almost never happens, because not everybody looks good in those other lengths and not everybody is willing to invest a lot of money in a range of clothes that will be unwearable by the time fashion’s pendulum swings back to knee length. A well dressed woman is always in style, and the knee length dress is a familiar enough style to not raise eyebrows or attract unwanted notice or attention.
A tightly folded dress that is gently twisted or folded neatly can take care of the one or two nights in a vacation when relaxed yet more formal dining requires something other than a bikini or jeans. A peasant style knee length dress or knee length sundress can span extreme temperatures and sight see all day into evening but be flexible enough to go without having to return to the cabin or dwelling to change for dinner. In a lightweight cotton, linen, or silk the knee length dress becomes very breathable and comfortable for tropical and desert travel.
For travel, take the example of a sleeveless knee length dress gathered at the waist. With a dressy jacket, serious handbag, heels, and pearls, the knee length dress becomes half a suit. A severely cut knee length dress can be softened with less stark flowing hairstyles, bracelets and a casual watch. Then take the same dress and pair it with espadrilles and a cardigan sweater, beads and a floppy hat. The same dress is now suitable for a tourist walkabout in any foreign port. Sandals or casuals complete the look.
But the woman is also dressed for dinner if a nice restaurant is found. If she must dine with adults of any caliber, off comes the sweater, up comes the hair, and a lipstick make her dining suitable. Further this with a nice pair of earrings and a scarf the lady is dressed for a more formal dinner. A knee length dress of a smart cut and color can make the social scene without a woman packing a huge suitcase and hauling it around airports and taxis. A knee length dress is always feminine and tasteful.
