The transition between Summer and Autumn is a little bit of a funny one here in the UK…You can never be fully sure that when you walk out of the house in a wooly jumper and jeans, that you won’t be in sweltering 25 degree heat that same afternoon.
However, what I love about Autumn is that it lends the opportunity to combine an element of summer style with hints of winter inspired flair. One of my go-to combinations in Autumn is a floral or mono-tonal midi dress which can be accessorised to work both in Summer or A/W (for summer, a cute pair of flatform sandals and big sunglasses, in Autumn some sexy black boots and a fedora to match).
I’ve found the perfect dress for the transition from S/S to A/W. Its so perfect, that I now own it in two colours!
Introducing the perfect High Neck Midi Dress in fuscia.
What I love about the design of this dress is that it’s loose enough to be worn alone in summer without becoming uncomfortable, but it’s weighty enough to be layered up and worn as an Autumn/Winter dress too.
The dress is perfect both for an evening out or work day, but can also be dressed down with a jacket and a pair of flats.
For a day look, I paired the dress with a pair of statement boots, a black fedora and a vintage leather belt.
Its important to note that the cut and design of the dress are what make it so versatile. The pleats give the dress a very sophisticated yet slightly edgy touch, whilst the floaty, spacious skirt add comfort and femininity.
Introducing the same style, in black.
For work wear, I styled the black version of the dress with a pair of ankle strap low heels. I accessorised with a bespoke bumble-bee hair band and a vintage belt.
What I love the most about this dress is just how comfortable it is. I love to feel comfortable but to remain looking put together, stylish and feminine.
Adding quirky accessories enables me to show the edgy side of my style, but for those of you who prefer to keep to classical dressing, you could easily pair this dress with a statement clutch bag, eye catching earrings or an oversized blazer/leather jacket.
Even though I’m only 5’1″, I think that this dress is a really flattering and handy staple to own. I can imagine this style and shape working for a diverse range of body types, which is why I wanted to bring this to light on my blog.
The dress is very well made, with a long back zip to ensure it’s secure and well fitted.
I would definitely recommend this style of dress for anyone looking for a piece of clothing that could be used for multiple events and seasons.
