THE 3 DRESS STYLES YOU NEED THIS SEASON

If you're struggling to whittle down your wishlist, good news: we asked Sarah Murray, owner and buyer of iconic Edinburgh style destination Jane Davidson, to define this season's key dress styles so you don't have to.

Based in the heart of Edinburgh, Jane Davidson has been a hotspot for unique fashion finds since 1969.  Nowadays, it's run by stylist and buyer extraordinaire Sarah – who also happens to be Jane Davidson’s daughter. And fifty years since it first opened its doors, Sarah has grown the boutique into a treasured destination for premium pieces by widely sought-after labels.

The family-run shopping haven is a goldmine of luxurious fashion finds, from Diane von Furstenburg's iconic wrap dresses to Smythe's fitted blazers, famously donned by Kate Middleton. The boutique's mix of high-end designers and up-and-coming British brands makes the experience of shopping there exciting and unpredictable.

With this in mind, we knew Sarah would be just the person to ask about this season's must-have dress styles. From feminine floral midi's to show-stopping sequin numbers – these are her covetable top picks from Atterley's dress directory...

Winter Florals

“Floral dresses are not just for summer – they have definitely become a year round staple. For day, I would layer a fine roll-neck sweater underneath and accessorise with some block heel knee high boots. For evening, lose the roll-neck, add some heels, a statement necklace and a clutch bag.”

Sequin & Sparkle

“The tuxedo dress is definitely key this winter, as is the statement sequin dress. Sequins now work all year round and also during the day. The key thing is not to show too much flesh. A side slit is fine but make sure you have a sleeve and a high neck. Finally, a great blazer can take you effortlessly from day to evening.”

“Leopard print has gone from being on-trend to a classic. Retro prints from DVF are also key for our clients. Let the print do the talking though and keep everything else simple. A knee-high boot makes a print dress very autumn/winter 2019.”
