After months of loungewear and basics at home, we are now looking for some inspiration in some fun print dresses. Whether you are going out for dinner or staying in, sometimes it’s nice to throw on your favourite colourful dress to feel more yourself and to feel motivated for a new day even if you are just working from home. Luckily here at Anna, we’ve had a ton of new beautiful prints and colourful dresses from multiple brands that we have rounded up for you with some styling tips this week.
Printed dresses from florals to different colourful patterns aren’t anything groundbreaking, but they are continuing to be on trend year after year for a reason. The best thing about most dresses is that not only do they instantly make you look polished and put together but most of the trendiest dresses are also incredibly comfortable to wear. Opt for a longer style with sleeves and combine them with your favourite jumper and ankle boots to fight the autumnal weather while looking effortlessly chic.

Our go-to autumn look from day to night is an easy midi dress combined with a comfy jumper and some white trainers. This is an easy outfit to throw on that will not only make you look instantly stylish but also will keep you warm and comfortable. The below dress from Second Female is an easy flowy style that is universally flattering and easy to style up or down for different occasions.

The way we dress is an important part of how we feel throughout the day. It might sound like a silly thought but a simple outfit gone wrong can bring down the whole day if you don’t feel like your best self in what you pull out of your wardrobe in the morning. The great thing about dresses is that it is an instant outfit just by itself. So investing in a few key dresses that you love that you can style from season to season will make getting dressed in the morning a whole lot easier. Once you throw on one of those dresses you instantly feel ready to take on the day, anything else added to the outfit is just a bonus to make you look and feel even better.
Colourful prints combined with vibrant colours is a lovely combination to brighten up any day. The below Primrose Park dress is a very flattering shape with an elasticated waist and is a lovely print option to style from summer to winter. Combine it with a comfy Essentiel Antwerp knitted jacket for maximum cosyness.
This mini dress from Essentiel Antwerp is a great piece to style from season to season even for the colder months as it has long sleeves and trendy long cuffs, but it's also easy to layer with a warm jacket and some tights for a warmer autumnal look. Essentiel Antwerp is a great brand to look to as it offers some exciting modern twists on classic looks at a reasonable price, so you don’t have to break the bank to invest in a quality dress to add some colour to your wardrobe.
Another great way to style your favourite dress is to casually throw it on with some sleek ankle boots with a pretty pastel cardigan to match the rest of the colours. Having a balance of a polished dress with casual footwear and knitwear is a great way to keep your style level high while being casual for the office, a weekend brunch or just staying at home and being on zoom with colleagues or friends and family.
