Discover our style heroes from Autograph’s latest collection: contemporary designs plus premium fabrics equals pieces to love for many summers to come
The puff-sleeved dress in a mouth-watering sorbet shade
With park picnics and pub garden get-togethers on the agenda, a throw-on-and-go midi dress is a reassuringly comfy option to ease you into summer dressing. With its timeless belted silhouette, flattering calf-grazing length, puffed sleeves and striking coral colour, this Autograph pure cotton dress is low on effort but big on impact. Just add a leather bag and chunky slider sandals to complete a look that will take you through the day with ease.
The cool co-ord you’ll reach for during warm weather
Punchy shades and feelgood prints were key themes of the spring/summer collections. Autograph’s flowing silk-blend separates bring them together in one easy-to-wear design that nails summer’s optimistic mood. Consider a mix-and-match style that can be worn with trainers, heels or barely-there sandals depending on where you’re heading. And don’t forget the office – a co-ordinating set will be a star player in your nine-to-five wardrobe. Whether you choose the collared long-sleeve shirt, wide-leg trousers or wrap skirt, the styling opportunities are endless.
The minimal-fuss wrap dress that will make mornings easier
Like a pair of straight-leg jeans, a basic T-shirt or a black blazer, a wrap dress is a versatile style staple with seasonless appeal. The best wrap dresses transition effortlessly from night to day and beach to city, looking just as good worn with this season’s sandals as with knee-high boots later in the year. Unexpected twists are an Autograph signature and we’ve given this classic piece a modern update with an on-point floral print and sumptuous silk fabric. Use the adjustable waist belt to accentuate your waist and finish the look with subtle gold jewellery.
The vibrant suit for summer receptions and al fresco lunches
With summer well and truly here, it feels as if the time is right to find the joy in getting dressed up again. The new Autograph collection features relaxed tailoring and easy separates with wear-forever appeal, crafted from premium-quality fabrics: think pure silk, Irish linen and responsibly sourced cotton. Give your wardrobe a sense of escapism with this beautiful linen jacket featuring a waist tie that will lend your day-to-day wardrobe a relaxed vibe. Just add an ivory silk T-shirt and smart sandals for a wearable take on the ‘dopamine dressing’ fashion trend.
