Dress to Impress With Autumn Evening Dresses
We may have had to sadly wave goodbye to the laidback Sunday BBQ or the long beer garden sessions of the summer. However, with the new season comes new social opportunities, and even more chances to dress to impress in the latest fashions.
It’s exciting to be able to swap the flowing maxis and casual playsuits of the summer for something a little more glamorous, and while summer dressing is often about cool comfort, in autumn you can really let your style shine through.
From work nights out to cosy dinners for two, autumn is full of occasions which call for a stunning new season evening dress. Here’s what to look for when doing you seasonal shopping, to put a glam seasonal spin on your wardrobe.
In summer you need to think about keeping cool on hot nights out, and light, airy fabrics are the order of the season. However, as the weather turns, you can look to heavier fabrics which can be more glamorous and more form fitting than summer styles. This Floral Mix Dress is a great find among George evening dresses, with a thicker stretch fabric, mix of textures and an autumnal floral pattern all adding up to a gorgeous way to wear florals into winter.
Everyone loves a good bodycon dress, but tight fits don’t go too well with hot and sticky summers. Now that the leaves are turning brown, however, the super versatile midi dress is the perfect example of a fashion-forward form-fitting buy. The G21 Long Sleeve Midi Dress at George at ASDA is a stunningly simple curve-encasing dress, and a bargain at just £10.
Texture is a huge deal this autumn, with fashion royalty Katy Perry rocking a mix of velvet and baroque textures at Paris Fashion Week. The new baroque and jacquard trend is the perfect luxe look for autumn, with a sumptuous feel and gilded look that will take you right through the festive party season.
The classic illusion dress is still going strong, and will give you extra confidence on big nights out. Why not choose cobalt blue with black illusion panels, for a nod to one of this season’s key colours? Or really contrast things up with red and black, for a fiery, festive feel.
Pre party season meet ups, works parties, posh dinners out – autumn is a really glamorous time of year when it comes to socialising, and you’ll want an equally glamorous evening dress to see you through in style. A bodycon style is always going to turn heads, but one with extra detail, like a mesh panel or peplum design (or both as is the case with the George Peekaboo Bodycon Dress!) will really stir things up style wise. Choose from trendy cobalt, festive red or classic black for a showstopper dress that will become your autumn ‘go to’ for evenings out and events – and a bargain at just £20!
