We have finally kissed summer goodbye and  our autumn winter wardrobes are starting to get into full swing. It’s the perfect time to invest in key pieces that will see you through the cold season ahead. You can’t go wrong with a sweet and simple monochrome mini dress. Easy to wear and diverse, they can be dressed up and down for any occasion with black tights and a coat effortlessly thrown over the top

The Ganni ‘Cherron’ dress is currently doing the rounds with the fashion crowd and quickly becoming the brands signature style. We love this Gingham version and paired with knee high boots or tights and cute flats it makes the perfect, easy to wear day dress.

If you want to go for something a bit more luxe, why not opt for Paul & Joe’s plush black velvet mini. Adorn this with pearly accessories such as the Shrimps Quinn bag for special occasions

If your purse strings are a little tight this season, fear not! Head to Zara for their take on the velvet mini with a dainty ruffle trim and bib detail. We particularly love the bejewelled flower shaped buttons.
