8 Autumn Dresses You Need Now

Trust us, a cool change never looked so good. 

The New Shirtdress

This failsafe staple is what I call the Monday morning special. Effortless and easy, you can create a stylish ensemble without even thinking. For an updated version embrace bold stripes, exaggerated cuffs, drapery or added embellishment. Wear layered with a roll neck sweater, oversized bomber and block-heel ankle boots.

Moody Florals

A refreshing change from florals in spring (groundbreaking!) Do as the fash-pack do and take your floaty florals with a side of punk. The colour-scheme is a mixture of deep blues and greens with splashes of red, purple and pink, all on a base of black. Wear with stacks of gold jewellery and a leather biker jacket. Tip: leave your heels at home and style with your favourite kicks.

The New Victorian

If there's one trend the StyledBy team are dying to jump on, it's this one! Elegant necklines, modest sleeves, fuller skirts and a cinched waist... need I say more? The romantic silhouettes can be dressed up or down: for date night wear with a scarlet-red lip, shoulder-duster earrings and barely-there heels. Mid-week, team with with lace-up ballet flats and a cropped denim jacket.

Mustard Hues

This opulent shade has made it's way from the runway to the retailer shop floor and we couldn't be happier. Make a bold statement and wear your mustard with other earthy tones and luxe textures. Style with extra-large hoops, a burgundy lip and velvet mules.

Velvet

More versatile than you might immediately think, the velvet dress can become a total failsafe for colder days. Wear to work layered with a tailored shirt, boyfriend blazer and a sling back pump. Or Friday-night drinks with metallic strappy sandals, mini top-handle bag and door-knocker earrings. Come Sunday brunch, just add a grey marle sweatshirt, white sneakers and oversized sunnies.

Fuschia

Eye-grabbing shades of fuschia are sure to get you through the transseasonal funk. Follow in street style's footsteps and wear with unexpected pieces like motorcycle boots or layered over high-waisted denim.  Finish with fine-gold stack rings and a cropped leather jacket.

Lace

No matter the season, there is always room for 'Little House On The Prairie' style lace pieces in your wardrobe. For a refreshed (and seasonal appropriate) take on this delicate trend, try longer skirt lengths, higher necklines or long sleeves. Wear with studded leather accessories and cat's eye sunglasses for a cool-girl edge.

Utilitarian

The new mid-week uniform comes in the form of military green or sandy-coloured tailored dresses. The silhouette should be kept classic and sleek, while styling can be as audacious as you dare. Layer with an oversized denim jacket, silver boots and chunky gold chains.
