AW dresses

18 dresses that have caught my eye for AW 21, featuring festive checks, cosy cords and luscious velvets – it’s hard to pick a favourite!

Leon & Harper Reglisse Dress – Leon & Harper. I have the tartan version of this dress from last year – It’s a really comfy soft cotton and easy to layer with a tank top for extra warmth. I love the patchwork mix of different autumnal fabrics.

Tartan Harrogate dress – Justine Tabak. I bought this dress a couple of weeks ago and have already worn it multiple times – I love the multi-toned tartan and the loose fit – the perfect casual dress for weekend walks.

Charcoal and ruby plaid shirt dress – Brora. A great casual check dress for the festive season.

Sophia burgundy check dress – Ophelia & Indigo. I love the burgundy/blue check in this easy-to-wear cotton dress – also available in a shorter version.

Checked midi dress – Monsoon. This brown/black check dress would be easy to dress up or down for work or weekend.

Raspberry Cord Dress – Pink City Prints. I love the frill shoulder detail on this prarie style berry cord dress.

Candy Vine Margaret Dress – Pink City Prints. The burgundy velvet trim on this cotton dress is so pretty

Spot mesh fit and flare dress – Coast. I love the sheer spot mesh sleeves to add a bit of fun to this classic dress from Coast.

Novella midi dress – Jane Atelier. An elegant dress for winter weddings with the prettiest frill detail around the neckline.

Calla burgundy velvet dress – Beulah. This dress stopped me in my tracks when I spotted it yesterday. Beulah have just launched a velvet collection of dreamy dresses and this is my favourite. I love the pearl buttons and balloon sleeves. I also like the slightly raised waistline which will be flattering on petite figures.

Cotton checked midi dress – Albaray. I love the burgundy / pink mix in this easy-to-wear check dress – a great weekend throw on number.

Shae cord dress – By Iris. The popular Shae style is back in a raspberry pink needlecord. I have this style in red from last year so can highly recommend!

Forest Cord Dress – Pink City Prints. Forest green is one of my favourite colours at this time of year. This needlecord dress can be worn loose for a more casual look or cinched in with the matching waist tie. I’d wear it with burgundy boots for weekend walks.

Tahlia Yoke Dress – By Iris. I love the velvet edging on this pretty teal cotton dress. Wear with a navy thin polo neck underneath for added warmth.

Circle print lace detail emerald silk dress – Brora. I love the black lace detail on this dress – it would look good worn with a black belt.

Yascoolia midi dress – Y.A.S. This dress looks way more expensive than it is. It reminds me of something by Erdem. I love the retro style and jacquard fabric. It would be good for a winter wedding or to dress up on Christmas Day.

Emerald and charcoal gingham shirt dress – Brora. I have the navy/green version of this style from last year. I love the frill detail to the neckline and cuffs.

Veronique velvet shirt dress – Monsoon. A gorgeous green velvet dress with pretty jewelled buttons – perfect for festive events.
