Nothing beats a great dress for fuss-free styling, and as autumn beckons, our thoughts are turning to a new season of prints, colours and fabrics. We’ve gathered together five of the best dresses for autumn to show you how to work them into your wardrobe effortlessly.

Simply Divine

If you want an easy daytime option for autumn styling, this cotton jersey shift dress is the one for you. In a rich khaki – one of autumn's key colours – this is one of those throw-on-and-go kinda frocks. For casual weekends, wear solo with trainers and a denim jacket, or dress it up with a simply-cut Crombie coat and a pretty scarf.

Shirt Tales

This women's shirt dress has it all; a standout print, a fluid fabric that moves with you and it's cut in my favourite style: what more could a girl ask for? Dress down for the day with white pumps and a tonal cotton sweater tied around your body (much cooler than around the shoulders). Remember, an all-over print is the best cover-up, as it prevents the eye from focusing on one spot, which is handy if you want to hide any lumps and bumps.
