Dresses are my second skin—I wear a printed midi almost every day of the week. So when my editor asked our team to each start a monthly story on a special shopping subject of ours, dresses were obviously going to be my topic. I own almost 30 dresses, and they're the one thing in my wardrobe I choose to invest in, as they're a ready-made outfit that'll work for any occasion. This autumn there are three dress trends that I'm particularly excited about, and these are the new season trends that I have chosen to invest in.
First up, we have animal-print dresses. I never usually wear leopard print, but I have bought a maxi from ASOS and a pink leopard button-front dress from Ghost. Next up, I'm into checked dresses, from colourful grid prints to gingham tiny prints, you'll find these dresses all over the high street. The last dress I bought was an autumnal leaf-print dress by Stine Goya, but & Other Stories, Mango and Ganni also have plenty of autumnal dresses you can wear now with sandals and in December with boots.
