Fashion Director Marie Kelly gives us five gorgeous and simply dresses to lust after; whether you’re going to a special occasion or a night out with friends.
I love to layer, but every now and then I find a piece that stands so beautifully on its own, it needs no help from me. Here are five gorgeous minimalist dresses from the new collections.
This gorgeous midi dress with cut-out back is exquisite in its simplicity. I also like that it’s a smokier shade of black, rather than completely matte. It’s so feminine without being at all fussy.
Open back dress, €59 at & Other Stories
This terracotta knit dress uses graphic lines to add interest and depth to the most pared-back of silhouettes. This would look terrific worn over a shirt and with heels.
Technical knit dress, €89 at Cos
So cool but chic too, I love this sweatshirt dress. I fear this shade of pastel pink would look dreadful with my skin tone, but if it comes in another colour I’ll snap it up.

I’ve had my eye on this dress for a while now. The simple tie wrap gives it a point of difference, which makes it feel very unique, yet it doesn’t complicate the simplicity of the silhouette.

The suede texture is what makes this dress stand out from the multitude of slip dresses in stores, and the pockets, which give it a lovely boyish edge.
