Consider the smock dress your new secret weapon for tricky transitional days, by Leah Carolan


Smock dresses can be worn on many different occasions and in a variety of ways. They are particularly easy to style, either formally or casually. 

In the colder months, style smock dresses with skinny or straight leg denim jeans. Dress the look up with some black leather jeans, which work particularly well paired with a simple white smock dress. 

For more casual days, smock dresses can be accompanied with a pair of trainers and a leather or denim jacket. To bring the look out after work, you can style a smock dress with a pair of high heels, a long necklace and a formal jacket.
