Autumn winter is well and truly upon us, and we’re FINALLY getting the chance to return to our go to outfit of this season: a mini dress and boots. We’re huge fans of this look and for good reason. First of all, believe me when I say that it’s SO versatile! You can pair a mini dress with tights, a cardigan and some cute ankle boots for a relaxed day look, add your favourite tan and a leather jacket with some heeled boots for the perfect night out vibe, or pop on some biker boots to add a bit of edge to your new favourite weekend ‘fit. The possibilities are beyond endless and believe me when I say that they’re oh so comfortable. A lot of heeled boots will generally have a thicker heel making them that bit easier to walk in, and the best part is that this outfit is generally a very low effort style as it’s easy to throw on in the morning and still look amazing!
How cute is this yellow mini dress from Motel Rocks? The square neckline is one of out favourite styles as it’s super flattering on most necklines as it reveals the collarbone and shows off a bit of skin while also remaining modest and appropriate. This neckline is also a little bit deeper than the likes of a round neckline so elongates the body. The puff sleeve is another favourite of ours as it creates volume on the top of the body in a natural way, making if the perfect option for someone that’s a bit smaller on top and wants to add balance to her silhouette. The black biker boots here add a touch of edge to this dress as well as bringing a more masculine feel to such a sweet, feminine outfit. This contrast brings a lot of interest to the outfit which we love!
The next outfit is the only permission I need to wear my beloved florals well into the winter this year. It’s no secret that this is one of our favourite prints and can you blame us? This mini dress from Ivy Lane features the ditsy florals that dominated our summer wardrobes, but now in more A/W friendly darker tones. The puff sleeve is always our go to for a slimming effect on the arms, while the gathering detail at the mid section defines the waist while ensuring that the dress skims over the stomach area in a really natural way. The real star of this dress just has to be that tiered skirt, adding volume to the hips and bottom of the body, making it the ideal dress for someone that’s smaller on the bottom and is looking to create the illusion of curves to get that hourglass figure we love! The knee high biker boots will again add a bit of edge and drama to this outfit creating a laid back style that we’re loving right now!
This heart print mini dress is a current staff favourite, and you all seem to be loving it too! Again, it features our favourite puff sleeve, with an elasticated cuff for maximum comfort, as well as a buttoning detail at the front which adds a really sweet feel to this dress. The lightweight fabric and clean, tailored style means that this dress would be ideal for layering under a cardigan or jacket for an Autumn look that we love. One of our many Autumn staples is a pair of over the knee boots, and they got a modern makeover this year when we began stocking this mock croc pair. These boots really do a great job of dressing up the outfit, making it the perfect date night look!
If you’re going for comfort, don’t worry girl we got you! The shirring effect on this dress from Daisy Street means that it’s fitted and slimming as well as super comfortable. This detailing also defines the waist in a really natural way, while the full skirt adds a lot of shape to the dress and creates the illusion of curves, giving us that all envied hourglass silhouette. I also may or may not be slightly obsessed with these white leather boots. The lighter twist adds a really fun, modern twist to the leather trend that seems to come back in style every Autumn!
Doesn’t this dress just scream Autumn? The plum and dusty pink colours in this one make it the perfect transitional piece, while the elasticated shirring effect on the cuffs and sleeves make for maximum comfort. The tie waist of this one pulls in the waistline, as well as drawing the eye to it and adds shape to the dress, emphasising your curves. This is the perfect simple style to throw on when you’re not sure what to wear but still want to look amazing! The ankle boots would do a really great job of elevating this outfit, making if the perfect weekend look.
