Candy Stripes and All Things Nice

As I mentioned in my piece on transition clothing (here), dresses are always a struggle, particularly at this time of year. With autumn presenting a threat of tights-weather, but September still teasing us with some sunshine, the dress becomes a serious closet conundrum.

A shirt dress? Too summery. A knit dress? Way too wintery. And there lies our issue. But if you’re like me and you’re not ready to break ties with your love of dresses, then this is where the sleeveless, pinafore style dress comes into play! It turns out that a straight, sleeveless dress will always work to your advantage. Wear a shirt under it for work or a t-shirt and Converse for laid back weekends, this dress will never fail you! And when it comes to those chillier climes, tights, boots and a snuggly polar neck will do just the trick!

Take a look at my edit of the new season’s best sleeveless dresses, I promise you’ll get your wear out of them…
