I Live in Dresses, and These Are the 5 Trends I'll Wear Well Into 2022

·3-min read

You only need to have a quick scan of a tube platform or any shopping centre to see that midi dresses have become an easy uniform for British women. They are a reliable outfit in one and make you feel polished, even on those mornings when you only have five minutes to get ready. In winter, they can be a little trickier to style, however, because you have to think about the length of your coat, whether it goes with a couple of layers of knitwear and what boots you can wear with said dress.

There are five dress trends this winter that make all these styling questions a little easier, and you're going to see a lot of this month and beyond. If comfort is what you are into, then look no further than the jumper dress, which now comes in so many stylish iterations, dispelling the myth that the jumper dress is unshapely. If you lived in slip dresses in the summer, then the satin sleeved midi dress is probably the answer to your winter dress woes. If you want something to wear with tights and boots, however, then look no further than dark printed midi dresses.

Keep scrolling to see and shop the five dress trends I'm going to wear well into 2022.
