Trendy winter dresses: Fun with details

Yup, it’s winter, and we’re all busy paring down our wardrobe to focus on simpler outfits that will take us through the next few months. But simple (and simplified) clothes need not be boring.

After all, it’s all in the details: opt for dresses with detailing that add an interesting touch to your outfit.

We’ve dug up some trendy winter dresses with detailing that you can wear to work, a formal event or just for the day you want to adopt your understated style.

Trendy Winter Dress 1: Ruffles

Ruffles are ultra-feminine and a fun touch to a knee-length dress. Pair this purple Marks & Spencer dress with a neutral jacket, but keep the buttons open to let the ruffles show.

Trendy Winter Dress 2: Rosettes and flowers

This is the perfect dress to take you from office to business lunch drinks to dinner and coffee.  The floppy flower on this Vero Moda dress breaks the monotony of the black and white palette. Avoid a statement necklace with this dress. Instead, pile your wrist with thick bangles, choosing colours that depend on your mood and the occasion.

Trendy Winter Dress 3: Accordion Pleats

Pleats are not just for high school uniforms, as this knit dress from Zara shows. I also liked the fabric detailing around the neckline. I’d carry a catchy oversized bag with this dress, or wear sensible Mary Janes or pumps for a schoolgirl look. 🙂
