While drab autumn weather doesn't really excite me, I have to admit I do really love the fashion at this time of year. It's cool enough to wear cute boots, tights and coats- but it's not so cold you need to wear a thousand layers just to avoid getting frost bite. Dresses will forever be my favourite clothing item, and so I've been looking some for new ones to add to my wardrobe for the colder months. I found all of these on the website Lyst, which gives you the ability to find everything you need all in one place. No more trawling loads of different sites as everything is all here! Once you find something you like you simply click on it and it takes you to the original site, perfect for saving time and making things easier. Here are some of the gorgeous pieces that caught my eye for daytime wear.
1. Tartan Shirt Dress
I can imagine this looking really nice over some thick black tights with a cosy scarf. I love how shirt dresses look, I'm yet to try one on myself (and am not entirely sure how they'd work for me being bigger in the bust department!) but if they look right I'll be stocking up on them for sure. A bit of tartan is always nice over the autumn too.
2. Jersey Skater Dress
Skater dresses will always be one of my favourite things to wear. Comfy, flattering and can easily be dressed up and down- they're always a winner in my book. I particularly like the look of this one because the material looks nice and thick which is ideal for the upcoming colder weather. Plus how pretty is this cherry pink/red shade for this time of year?! Again over a pair of tights and boots with a jacket, you have an easy to wear outfit for autumn/ winter days.
3. Navy Shirt Dress // 4. Dusky Pink Shirt Dress
Two similar styles in different shades, I adore them both! Aside from black, my favourite shade to wear when it comes to clothes is navy blue. I love the fact that it's dark and it just seems to work with my colourings well. No no surprise that a huge chunk of my autumn/ winter wardrobe is in this colour! While #4 is clearly a pink dress, I think the more dusky shade makes it a great choice for the autumn. A slightly different route to go down colour wise but would still look amazing.
5. Oversize T-Shirt DressHow comfy does this look?! I think this is probably the piece that excites me the most, despite it being the plainest. In all honesty I can't imagine something like this being the most flattering garment in the world, but when you're having a slouchy kind of day and want something to throw on that still looks cute this could be perfect. It would be ideal with a more fitted jacket, plus it's black which is always that bit more slimming.
