New Year, New Wardrobe? Dresses For Every Style Resolution

After seemingly an eternity, January payday is here! Which makes now the perfect time to introduce some new pieces to your wardrobe to set your personal style on track for the year ahead.

Whether you’ve planned a serious style evolution for 2018 or you just want to buy a bit smarter, I’ve pulled together a selection of dresses to match your goals. Separates are great, but dresses are like the bread and butter of your wardrobe; an outfit in themselves with minimal styling required. All you have to do is find your favourites!

RESOLUTION #1: I want to have more fun with fashion

Flared sleeves, ruffles, statement earrings, pillarbox red and graphic prints galore. Was it just me, or did fashion become fun again last year? Rediscover the fun in playing dress up just like I did with sequins, appliqué, playful prints and neon hues.

RESOLUTION #2: I want to step outside my style comfort zone

Fancy trying something new? Experiment with maxi and midi lengths, new textures and prints.


RESOLUTION #3: I want to wear more colour

Sunnier days may seem a world away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t bring the sunshine to your wardrobe. Daunted by the thought of ditching black? Dip your toe into the sartorial rainbow with a dress in your favourite colour and pair with all-neutral accessories.


RESOLUTION #4: I want to invest in timeless, versatile pieces

Maybe 2018 is the year you want to start shifting towards a capsule wardrobe, or maybe you just want to cut back on buying fast fashion. Either way, the humble shift dress is without doubt a classic silhouette that will last you years, for a multitude of occasions.

Think nude/neutral tones in flattering silhouettes for maximum wear. Whilst most of these could fall into the category of office wear, I’ve also included some more casual options, such as a denim shirt dress and a cosy knitted piece.

RESOLUTION #5: I want to wear more detailed pieces 

Ya know, those little quirks that start conversations and make you fall in love with a piece of clothing? Look for built-in belts, tie details, embellishments and tassels to make a style statement.
