I'm Not Wishing Autumn Away, But These Winter-Ready Dresses Are So Good

As the daily decision of going bare-legged and coat-free versus dusting off our trusty opaques and grabbing a cosy cover-up becomes ever more apparent (along with the contents of our handbag expanding to fit an umbrella, sunglasses and an extra emergency layer), it's no surprise that we all feel slightly confused during the autumn/winter season. This seems to be the case with dresses, too.

Can we still wear them? How do we wear them? And most importantly, which ones actually look good with tights? Now that our summer dresses are firmly in their vacuum bags, it's time to think about the ones that will tick all the boxes. With my help, you can find a frock that'll keep you feeling both chic and cosy during the chilly British winter. From COS's must-have knit dress to Nanushka's leather number, these are the dresses to buy now and wear until spring.

Knitted Dresses


Wear with a pair of chunky boots. 

I've tried this on IRL and can confirm it's so comfy.

Suede + Leather


This Marks and Spencer dress is such a steal. 

Shirt Dresses

I love the cargo pocket on this. 

Inject some personality into your wardrobe with leopard print.

You'd never know this was from the high street.

Stripes look good all-year round.

High-Neck Silhouettes


This is begging to be worn with knee-high boots. 

I can't say no to a good pie-crust collar.

Wear with the matching trousers for maximum impact.
