Add some swish-worthy flair to your wardrobe with the best new-in dresses, plus see our tips on how to style them
Take a walk on the wild side
Green has been trending throughout 2022 and the love-in continues this autumn. Swap summer’s shades of lime and emerald for a deeper olive green. Busy days call for stylish staples, like this leopard-print midi dress. It’s an instant wardrobe hero, with a mossy shade that puts a contemporary spin on classic animal print. The floaty shape and ruffles on the neck and shoulders add pretty detailing. Beat any early autumn chills by pairing it with a green aviator jacket – guaranteed to keep you cosy thanks to a shearling lining. Add white trainers or flat boots and you’ll be ready to power through your to-do list.
Stuck in a bit of an outfit rut? Get the most out of your wardrobe by styling your dresses in multiple ways. Refresh your favourite floral-print dress for autumn with a few easy layering pieces. Look for designs that bring out the pattern in the dress for a put-together look: the hues of this pink knitted vest and green shacket pair perfectly with the ditsy print on this floral-print midi dress. Add some chunky footwear – the hiking boot trend is still going strong – and you’ve got a new go-to outfit. Plus, the sleeveless knit and shacket will look just as good worn with a simple white shirt and jeans on casual days.
Keep it simple
Make stylish autumn dressing easy with a fuss-free midi dress. The best throw-on-and-go dresses work for every occasion: work, weekends and even running around after little ones. This black and white floral-print midi is a perfect example: comfy, flattering and easily dressed up or down. A tiered skirt adds subtle shaping while keeping it comfy and the delicate florals are an easy way to wear print. Plus, the monochrome palette will work with anything that’s already in your wardrobe. We’ll be pairing ours with chunky grey boots and a cross-body bag for a wear-anywhere outfit that scores maximum points for versatility.
