A winter knit need not just be a sweater, it can also envelope you from neck to calf in soft yarns. There's a simplicity to the sweaterdress that is oh so Scandinavian, while also being easy on the eyes – and the wearer's body.

Here, Vogue Scandinavia hand-selects the must-have Nordic knitted dress to nab from Finnish brand Almada Label, while rounding up the ideal, responsibly-crafted accessories to don alongside. Peruse and shop the full look below:

Dress by Almada Label

Flawlessly constructed and universally flattering, this sweaterdress from Finnish Almada Label is your new go-to. It's rib-knitted from soft-to-touch cashmere and merino wool blend that doesn't itch, with a relaxed fit, elegant turtlenneck and mid-length, calf-grazing hemline.

Belt by Little Liffner

Everyone needs a belt in their wintertime repertoire, especially to style a sweaterdress. This slim version from Stockholm-based Little Liffner is produced in a small family-run factory in northern Italy from materials that are entirely locally-sourced. Cinch it at the waist of your knitted dress when it's not slipped through the beltloops of your favourite jeans.

Necklace by Nootka

Nootka designs and handcrafts each of its pieces locally in Stockholm, ensuring good working conditions and close dialogues with the brand's expert goldsmiths. The chunkier effect of this necklace will add a tactile, gilded touch to any look.

Heels by Stine Goya

We've seen a faux-fur finish across every type of accessory in recent seasons, but there's something so fresh and playful about Stine Goya's furry mule heels. They're stacked on 9.5cm heels, perfect to slip on when arriving to the office or a dinner party.

Sunglasses by Chimi

These sunglasses from Stockholm-based label Chimi are crafted from lightweight yet hardy Italian acetate. The lenses are equipped to protect you from both UVA and UVB rays, and with the brand's partnership with The Solar Project, a portion of the proceeds go to solar power initiatives to boost renewable energy usaage.
