How to Style Maxi Dresses in Autumn
Autumn is the favourite season of most fashionistas. More than the summer or winter, autumn opens up numerous possibilities of how to style your dresses. It’s too cold for a short sleeve but you can wear a coat or a jumper, or layer up with a long sleeve tee. Sandals are off the menu but you can make your look your own with boots or trainers - so many options! Autumn is the perfect season to make the most out of your maxi dresses, so here are five picks for this season and a few ideas on how to style them:
Evening dresses with sleeves are the ideal choice for autumn’s events. With this Royal blue Chiffon Maxi Dress (£65.00) you will look stunning in this season’s weddings, christenings or special occasions. It’s a lightweight gown with simple style in a profound and confident colour, with a sensual deep v-neckline and a flattering shirred waistband and cuffs at the end of the puffed styled long sleeves. Style it with flawless high heeled shoes and show your personality with a flashy pair of earrings.
Here’s another sensational pick for this season’s formal events and a winner’s choice for wedding guests. Our Navy Lace Bodice Maxi Dress (£68.00) combines a beautiful a-style floor-length skirt with a unique pink embroidery embellishment in the bodice. The sweet scalloped hem neckline and the delicate navy spaghetti straps are the details that make this the perfect evening dress. Silver strappy sandals are the ideal footwear for this outfit and the sleeveless style shouldn’t discourage you to wear it in the autumn – style it with a blazer for an original look.
This is one of those versatile long sleeve dresses. You can easily dress this Navy Floral Maxi Dress (£65.00) up for formal occasions but it can also be a quite casual autumn dress.Try an oversized shirt and a jacket for a layered effect with flat shoes if you want a chilled and laid-back look. With suede or leather ankle boots and leather handbags, this all-over floral print maxi dress becomes the perfect choice for cocktails and dinner dates.
Our Yellow Floral Maxi Dress (£55.00) is the joyful treat your wardrobe needs. The tie waist belt and layered skirt hem meet the gorgeous short boxy sleeves for a truly original outfit. It can be complemented with a knitted cardigan and suede boots for the autumn days. Alternatively, a blue denim jacket and a black handbag will also suit this dress very well. The cheerful summer colour and floral print are the perfect twist for the upcoming season’s looks. This is a good pick for brunches, birthday parties, baby showers and special occasions, but also casual enough to be used for work and everyday errands.
Our Pink Floral Maxi Dress (£35.00) is more than a party dress. The beautiful ruffled short sleeves, self-tie belt and the classic cross over v-neckline are features of an elegant and flattering design. This is a great choice for first dates, birthday parties, christenings, special occasions or any events during the autumn season. The large blue floral print is mesmerising, not to mention the unbelievable price and the ability to style it casually – try a biker or white denim jacket, a backpack purse and chunky trainers for a totally different look!
