The new day dress and how to wear it

The days are getting cooler and wetter and so it is time to wrap up with lots of layering. This autumn the day dress is equally comfortable and stylish as any warm skinny jumper. From elegant silk two tones to cosy printed dresses, here are three great figure flattering day dresses to wear this season.

This beige and red silk dress by Schumacher from Les Jumelles boutique is your ticket to easy urban chic this winter. Gently cinched at the waist and an elegant length, it is slightly flared at the skirt to flatter curvy hips. It has endless possibilities from day to dinner looks. Wear it with dark tights, cropped cardigan, ankle boots, and a warm jacket.

The printed dress made a splash on the autumn/winter runways. Playful and sophisticated, it will easily update your wardrobe. This cute number from Amelia C Boutique is perfect for most silhouettes, especially if you are tall and like to cover up your arms, but best avoided if you have a petite frame and curvy hips. Add opaque tights when the temperature drops and slip it under one of the season's parka coats with knee high boots.

The ultimate figure flattering day dress is this number from Select boutique. Perfect for an off-duty look, this V-neck empire line style will look elegant with a contrast of colour. It is fitted just under the bust to enhance a smaller bust while cleverly camouflaging your hips and midriff. The length is just right to highlight gorgeous legs. Jazz it up with coloured tights and shoes or wear it with a coloured swing coat worn open.
