5 Beautiful Dresses For People Who Hate Fuss

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 to buy now.This gorgeous V-neck midi dress is exquisite in its simplicity. I also like that it’s a velvety’shade of black, rather than completely matte. It’s so feminine without being at all fussy.

V-neck’dress, €26 (reduced from €85) at & Other Stories

I love the colour and versatility of this dress. It looks incredibly chic worn over jeans, but it would look sharp paired with skinny trousers and heels.

Shirt dress, €19.99 at?H&M

So cool but chic too, I love this sweatshirt dress. I fear this shade of blush?would look dreadful with my skin tone, but if it comes in another colour I’ll snap it up.

Crew neck dress, Adidas Originals, €65 at topshop.com

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

Avalon jersey dress, €35 (reduced from €65) at finerylondon.com

The elegant?cape detailing?is what makes this dress stand out from the multitude of dresses in stores. It’s simple but has a point of difference.

?Layered red dress, €29.95 (reduced from €99.95) at Massimo Dutti
