New Year, New Dress - 4 Styles To Update Your Wardrobe In 2019

Updated: Mar 4, 2020

Looking at refreshing your wardrobe for the year ahead but no idea where to start? I've edited down 4 different dresses to have you walking into 2019 with style, confidence and ease - all looks available at Pretty Little Thing!

The Day Dress

A well cut day dress provides a go-to when you want something a little more put together than shorts or a skirt but something still effortless and wearable This year, consider adding a satin or silk shirt dress to your wardrobe. What could be more fitting this season than a neutral mini with ruched detail? Step into THE colour of the year (champagne/beige) with a shirt dress which can be easily styled up or down. Add a dramatic pair of sunglasses, a small cos body bag and a statement shoe or swap out the shoe for a white sneaker for a more casual look.

The Anywhere, Anytime Dress

Usually relegated to casual/day time, a shirt dress can be the perfect go-anywhere dress, easily styled up to go from day to night. Look for a short hem line and a bold belt to take the shirt dress to the next level and style with a sky high statement heel. Play with natural textures such as tortoise shell and a rattan bag to tie in with this seasons earthy trend then roll up the sleeves and pull your hair back into a low bun for an effortless, fresh and chic finish.

The Vintage Dress

Add a vintage vibe into your wardrobe with an empire waisted lame' midi. The lame' trend is still holding strong from seasons past and now lends itself to more than just midi skirts, with midi and maxi dresses being the key styles to invest in. Try a dusty pink tone for a soft, feminine and wearable option - this styles well with tan accessories for a vintage, voho vibe or with a denim jacket and white sneakers if the weather permits.

The Formal Dress

Long sleeve, check. Lace, check. High neckline, check. For a formal dress that makes a statement without being flashy or ott, a lace midi is the perfect choice. This dress stands alone and needs only minimal styling to make it pop - a red lip, a simple clutch a pump heel are all you need.
