If you're not a fan of the wonderfully comfy fabric that is jersey, then read on! Here is why you should add a jersey dress to your wardrobe...

Jersey was one of Coco Chanel's favourite fabrics to work with, and it's quite easy to see why. It's a incredibly versatile fabric that can help shape your body in a form-fitting body-con piece (great if you have a slim and trim figure) or drape around the body, hiding any problem areas. And not only that, but they can be dressed up or down with the right accessroeis - a fanstastic pair of heels and statement jewellery for nighttime, flats and a great cardigan or jacket for daytime! Have we sold you on the virtues of the jersey dress yet?
