Nothing beats a great dress for fuss-free style, and as we move into the new season, my thoughts are turning to autumn dresses and the fresh prints, colours and fabrics we can play with! Below, I’ve laid out five of my favourite new dresses and how to style them, helping you effortlessly work them into your autumn wardrobe.
This dress has it all! A punchy poppy print in this season’s big colour story (hello, pink and red) and a universally flattering shirt dress fit. Style it casual with a denim jacket and white trainers or smarten it up with black heels and chunky gold jewellery. What more could a girl ask for?
Looking for the perfect casual dress to see you through the season? Then look no further! This gorgeously simple tiered jersey dress in rich autumn shades is a throw-on-and-go essential. Wear it solo with a denim jacket and trainers or pair it with a cute striped turtleneck and your favourite knitwear piece when the weather gets cooler.
This maxi shirt dress is perfect in every way - simply cut, comfortable and ready for any occasion. The classic monochrome check print means you can pair it with bold colours (think a cobalt bag or red block heels) or keep it smart with a cream cardi and leather boots for the perfect work look.
A ’70s-inspired ditsy autumnal print and a retro colour palette make this floral dress a must-have for the season ahead. Try layering it under an on-trend knitted vest on chillier days and pair it with a belt to shape your waist. Or, style it up with platform shoes and rich gold jewellery for a night out - the possibilities are endless!
Make your heart sing with this statement animal print dress - an exclusive style set to be one of this season’s bestsellers! Available in two lengths; go for the midi dress if you’re petite and pair it with knee-high boots to help elongate your legs, or choose the maxi dress if you’re a little taller and let the floaty finish lift you off the ground.
