The Perfect Autumnal Dress

The Perfect Autumnal Dress

I have been on the search for the perfect autumnal dress for a few weeks. A few times a year I invest in high quality capsule wardrobe items. I have always found that its good to have a few items in your wardrobe that can be worn year after year. Plus financially its a bonus to have a few staple items to fall back on. I then tend to buy trend led pieces to bulk my wardrobe out more. On my search for the perfect autumnal dress my aim was to find a dress that could easily be won throughout the day but also glammed up for an evening out over the festive period and beyond. Simply Be have an amazing selection of both trend led and capsule items and their range starts at a size 8 up to 34 meaning its much more accessible for all. In fact the website is a little haven for shopping lovers. It includes not only clothing but lingerie, shoes, accessories and active wear. Meaning you can buy all your wants from one website 🙂 who doesn’t love an easy life?

The Perfect Autumnal Dress


There is a dress for every occasion on the website but as I mentioned above I wanted a capsule dress to add to my growing collection. Simply Be also stock dresses from a variety of designers which is fab for us as consumers. The website is very easy to navigate with clear drop down categories. When I spotted the dress I have featured I knew I had to get it. Its design is very much my style, the added leopard print keeps it trendy but with it being scattered threw the pattern makes it the perfect capsule item.

Being a larger size 14 I tend to go for a maxi dress for the more flattering longer cut and also dresses that nip in at the waist area. I have found this to be a much more flattering style on me, plus it makes my waist look smaller, which is a winning combo. The bust area has an added popper which allows you to open the dress up a bit more for a racier evening look or popper up for a  more refined look.

I love the way the designer has thought about the sheer fabric and added a slip underneath. The ruffling down either side gives the dress a little something added something special. Its design features like this that draw me to a dress especially one of a slightly higher price point. That said the fabric, design and quality of this dress is absolutely worth the price tag and for a capsule item I do tend to invest a little bit more. This style is perfect teamed with a pair of boots or even trainers for a more casual look, then come evening add some heels, pop open the popper at the bust area and transform it into the most amazing evening outfit. This style is available in sizes 10-26 and comes in at 89.99 Euro or £65.00
