Add some swish-worthy flair to your wardrobe with our most coveted autumn dresses, plus discover our top tips on how to style them
Add flower power with Jaeger’s skater dress
We’ve fallen head over heels for this romantic floral midi dress by Jaeger. Bracelet-length sleeves, a V-shaped neckline and a nipped-in drawstring waist create an elegant silhouette with a timeless quality. Dressy enough to be worn for any autumn events in your diary, it’s also a winner for days in the office.
A statement floral print on a rich toffee background, like this one, is a clever transitional choice. Team it with strappy heels for a dinner date, adding tights, boots and a tailored coat or a leather jacket when winter comes. Keep your hair and make-up simple and let the dress shine.
Keep it simple with a monochromatic midi
Make autumn dressing easy with a fuss-free midi dress. The best autumn dresses work for every occasion: work, weekends and even running around after little ones. This black and white patterned midi by Finery London is a perfect example of a truly wear-anywhere dress: comfy, flattering and easily dressed up or down. A tiered skirt creates movement while the three-quarter sleeves add subtle volume. Plus, the monochromatic palette will work with anything that’s already in your wardrobe.
Take a walk on the wild side
Busy days call for easy staples, like this leopard -print midi dress by Finery London. It’s an instant wardrobe hero that puts a sophisticated spin on animal print. The floaty shape, collared neckline and cuffed sleeves add subtle detail. Team with bare legs and black ankle boots to make the most of the warm transitional weather.
Come late autumn, beat the chill by pairing a leopard-print dress with a denim utility jacket – the shearling lining is guaranteed to keep you cosy. Add white trainers and a cross-body bag and you’ll be ready to power through your errands.
The chic merino-wool wrap dress
Stuck in a bit of an outfit rut? Don’t let the arrival of cold weather put your style on ice; refresh your wardrobe for autumn with a jumper dress for a chic look that won’t compromise on cosiness. Look for designs that combine luxuriously soft natural fibres (like merino wool) with a rich colour palette for a put-together look: the caramel hue of this Jaeger wrap dress ticks all the boxes. Pair with seasonal footwear – the knee-high boots trend is still going strong – and you’ve got a new go-to outfit.
