These are our editor’s picks of the 5 best women’s dresses to invest in right now, you can thank us later…
THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS
All we need this winter is a LBD and a place to be. A little black dress is a style you can always rely on: a versatile hero to compliment every outerwear, accessory, hair or make-up choice. Our Rosita Shine Ruched Mini Dress is a shining example of a black mini dress, literally, with its sleeveless silhouette starring in a sheen finish. A high neckline and gathered side make this a modish winter mini dress, perfect for pairing with glitz accessories for party season.
THE MULTI-COLOURED MAXI
It doesn’t come much more opposite from an LBD than a multi-coloured maxi dress, but there should be room for both in every women’s winter dress collection. Dreary days call for uplifting winter outfits, and there’s no better way to brighten your day than stepping out in a colourful dress. Combat the grey skies with a winter maxi dress, such as our Saskia Eydie Ruched Midaxi Dress. This long sleeved dress flaunts its mood-boosting multi-coloured print across a silhouette with sheer finishes, a playful side split and ruching. Less is more when it comes to accessorising with this lively style, we plan on pairing ours with drop earrings and heels.
THE KNITTED DRESS
A knitted dress should be deemed as a women’s winter outfit necessity. We love a versatile style, and a knitted number can be diversely styled as a work dress, winter wedding guest outfit or as a party dress. Soft and stylish, our Rassia Rib Crossover Dress ticks every box as knitwear, revamped. Modern day trends are channelled by this midi length dress, pairing a long sleeved silhouette with a crossover bodice and lively side split - ideal for showing off your favourite boots with every step.
THE FLORAL DRESS
A floral dress is a wardrobe hero all round, but we’re revitalising the traditional print for our winter floral dresses with details from embroidery to embellishment. Our floral dresses are flourishing, and our Avery Burn-Out Midi Dress is a firm favourite at French Connection HQ. Beautiful burn-out flowers grace this style in a divinely colourful display, whilst feminine frills, a flirty keyhole and a flattering belt complete this winter midi dress.
THE SEQUIN DRESS
Glisten up, because we’ve saved the party dress pièce de resistance till last. Our top pick for catching the light and capturing the attention of the room is none other than a scintillating sequin dress. Make a memorable entrance in a metallic midi dress this winter, such as our Axel Embellished Midi Dress. A dazzling diamond-shaped display of shimmering sequins has this winter midi dress ready to rival the disco ball from work Christmas parties to seasonal soirees with the girls.
