Need a bit of inspiration? This stylish Metallic Jacquard Skater Dress (pictured) ticks all the right boxes for transitional dressing. One can imagine this dress looking amazing with opaque tights. It can be dressed up or down with the right layers and accessories, and neither a classy cardigan nor winter jacket would look out of place. The shape is great as well, with an ultra flattering belted waist. Above all, it is perfectly on trend with the fabric’s rich baroque feel and feminine keyhole cutout on the back.
As you compile your autumn/winter dresses wish list beyond the dress above, here a few things to keep in mind when it comes to shopping for appropriate autumnal dresses online:
1. Consider layering.
A simple shape lends itself to being worn with accessories, rendering it a more versatile purchase. Autumn and winter is all about layering and warm, chunky cardigans, snoods and scarves are great for wrapping up warm and looking cool. Tights too are a girl’s best friend for keeping cosy, so don’t be afraid of mini dresses this season.
2. Allow for Christmas Feasting
Clever ladies love the A-line. Flared skirts are always flattering and can hide all manner of holiday sins, so you can tuck into that impending holiday feast-guilt free in a flirty skater dress. Also, accessorising your dress with a thick belt can nip in your waist and emphasise enviable hourglass curves.
3. Pick Your Fabric Wisely
While breezy chiffon and light linen may have been perfect for summer, you’ll obviously want to pick something a bit more substantial for the cooler season. Wools and knitted dresses will help keep out the winter wind.
