At this time of the year our minds wander from bikinis and sandals to key pieces that can be worn now and transitioned throughout the end of summer right into next season. That’s where a seriously clever frock comes into play. Focusing on one investment dress that can be styled, tweaked, layered and spun to create endless outfit options is super smart not only when it comes to style, but on your bank balance too. Easy fit, cool pockets, illusion panelling – this is the dress you’ve been looking for.
A long sleeve silhouette and relaxed pocket detail makes Daylia dress the perfect partner for a few minimalist sporty add-ons. Plimsolls or trainers, a backpack or cross-body bag – choose your way and then inject a fancy flash of colour via a bright scarf or nail polish and you’re good to go.
Cute 1960s styling is a key trend for autumn/winter, and the simplest path to what to wear with a black dress and nailing this retro feel is by adding a classic silk, square scarf. For added interest and extra complements opt for Chelsea boots and you’re done.
Those signature stripes are made for a fancy French twist. A tailored blazer will lift things into Parisian territory. Finish with heeled sandals or statement pointy pumps depending on the occasion.
