Whilst easy, breezy lightweight dresses in summer are great I do love a long sleeved dress during winter. There’s something quite polished and chic about the style plus they work beautifully during trans-seasonal weather when you’re not quite sure whether it’s going to be hot or cold. Whilst I love the silhouette of this Zimmermann dress, what really sealed the deal for me was the lace up detailing and ruching. Both give it a beautiful textured effect and elevate it into something special. Also who else loves rocking florals during winter? I think it’s such an unexpected print to wear at this time of year, plus the colour palette is perfect for the season.
With a dress such as this it’s nice to keep the rest of the look quite pared back so as not to overwhelm. I opted for my Balenciaga sock boots as they allowed me to continue the slimline silhouette of the dress to the rest of my outfit. I capped off my ensemble with a pair of frameless Le Specs sunglasses with a slight cat eye (such a great style at an affordable price) and my heart shaped Dior tribal earrings. Accessories that are understated yet with plenty of personality.
