I’ve decided to bring a little bit of my work life into my blog. I work in an occasion section of a department store helping to find women the most crucial part of the big events they have coming up – their dress! I’ve decided to come up with a little list of my 8 favourite dresses that are perfect for winter!
(Dresses Numbered from left to right)
- Adrianna Papell Deep V Neck Beaded Taffeta Gown £290 (Currently reduced to £203)
The shape of this dress is something completely different, but it something that we have saw reappear on the catwalk numerous times over the last year! The lower half of the dress has about as much “poof” as you’d want in a ball gown, and makes the dress extra spacious for dancing. Adrianna Papell dresses are usually made quite long – perfect if you are a tall girl struggling to find a dress that skims the floor. Otherwise, if you are shorter in height, this dress is relatively easy to have taken up!

- Damsel in a Dress Alissia Dress £189
This is a classic figure hugging dress that you could repeatedly whip out of your wardrobe just in time for Christmas. The dress shimmers with a red glittering through the black. The sleeves also make it ideal for the cold winter weather. Wear it with a 1950’s hair wave and the look will be complete!
- Adrianna Papell Sleeping Beauty Dress £290
In the search for the perfect winter ball gown, this dress could not be avoided! The sky blue colour of the dress totally enhances the icy sequined pattern. The combination of both just makes me think of winter. The dress is also available with sleeves, and in also in black and gunmetal/grey.

- Lauren Ralph Lauren Latima Cowl Neck Metallic Gown £210
Treat yourself to a bit of affordable luxury! Who would have thought Ralph Lauren fell into that category? I tell you now, the picture does this dress no justice. It falls perfectly in place and hugs your curves. Unfortunately, fellow redheads, white golds are not for you, the colour will drown you out. Another thing to note about this dress is that Ralph Lauren dresses are made quite big so opt for the size down! If someone can fit a hand down the back of you dress, it doesn’t fit.

- Embellished Shoulder Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress £68.00
This dress is both elegance and style, and it is easily something you could wear again at any time of year. The small sequined detail on the shoulders is enough to bling you up for winter without going over the top; while the floaty sleeves are long enough to cover a multitude of sins.Available From: ASOS
- Delicate Beaded Keyhole All Over Embellished Maxi Dress £150.00
This dress may well be my favourite of them all. It is all over 1920’s glamour from the cross hatching on the dress to the cut out detail on the neck and back of the dress. The low back adds an extra element of seduction.Available From: ASOS
- Ted Baker Yumie Open Back Maxi Dress £299.00
I love, love, love the ombre of colours in this dress, it is so autumnal. The floatiness of the dress combined with these colours makes me think of the falling autumn leaves. There is something very soft and elegant about this which isn’t obvious with the combination deep colours.
- Chi Chi London Plus Baroque Print Midi Dress £65.00
Last but not least is this stunning baroque print dress from Chi Chi London. Tea length is perfect if you are looking for something long but still want to show off those amazing heels you bought! Worried about the neckline making your shoulders look broader? That is where the shape of the dress comes in! The flare from the waist balances out your shoulders and hips so that you don’t become top heavy!
