I Live in Dresses, and These Are the 5 Trends I'll Wear Well Into 2022

You only need to have a quick scan of a tube platform or any shopping centre to see that midi dresses have become an easy uniform for British women. They are a reliable outfit in one and make you feel polished, even on those mornings when you only have five minutes to get ready. In winter, they can be a little trickier to style, however, because you have to think about the length of your coat, whether it goes with a couple of layers of knitwear and what boots you can wear with said dress.

There are five dress trends this winter that make all these styling questions a little easier, and you're going to see a lot of this month and beyond. If comfort is what you are into, then look no further than the jumper dress, which now comes in so many stylish iterations, dispelling the myth that the jumper dress is unshapely. If you lived in slip dresses in the summer, then the satin sleeved midi dress is probably the answer to your winter dress woes. If you want something to wear with tights and boots, however, then look no further than dark printed midi dresses.

Jumper dresses have long been a firm winter favourite with French women, but they have recently been embraced by the fashion crowd since Nanushka and Jacquemus have been putting new spins on knitted dresses.

2. Satin Dresses

Satin slip dresses were something of a fashion-girl uniform, and this is how to wear the style in winter. You'll find silky midis with long or puffed statement sleeves in every colour you could hope for—from zesty greens to rich saffrons.

3. Dark Printed Dresses

This dress style is easily paired with black tights and ankle boots, making it one of the most popular midis in every new-in section right now.

4. A Fabulous Black Dress



5. Oversized Silhouettes



Look for dresses with an excess of fabric (think big sleeves, big skirts, dramatic necklines, etc.). More, more, more! Top tip: This dress trend looks fabulous with very chunky boots.
