Three Fabulous Early Fall Dresses

If anyone else is, like me, just ever so slightly tired of all the summer dresses on the sale rails both on or offline and blanching at the thought of all the ‘luxurious’ camel we’re supposed to be wearing this fall (I know, I’ve been spending too much time in the US – Autumn, I mean) then take a look at these three beauties, two in red and one in next season’s body-con colour-block mode.

Going back briefly to camel, I have a perpetual hate of that deep yellowish/beige shade that was my school coat for so long.  Admittedly I did buy a very pale (very pale) camel (or beige) short belted cashmere blend coat from Whistles for a trip to Paris earlier this year but on the whole I will be steering clear.  If you’re tempted be aware the wrong shade can wash you out in a split second, so don’t get caught out.

I’ll freely admit that given the choice I would have all three of these, although I suspect they’re all quite hard to wear, with the DvF on the left with its ruching at the front being the easiest.  The colour-block is a must-have – so now, so sleek and so reasonably priced at Karen Millen, and the Reiss on the right?  Now what wouldn’t I give to look great in that – it’s back on the step at the gym I fear, probably for a good couple of years.
