It is a truth universally acknowledged, that upon approach of a change in season, a woman's wardrobe will be in need of a new, seasonally-appropriate and on-trend dress.
Fan of Jane Austen or not, with winter at our doorstep (can you feel it yet?), you'll need to store away your flimsy sundresses and floaty maxis, and revel instead in the winter dress. This season, sleeved styles come with bare shoulders and bell sleeves, tailored versions have nipped-in waists and midi-lengths, and knit dresses in grey and blue tones will help you ward off the chill but still cut a fine figure.
Our women's fashion buyers, fans of the bell sleeves themselves, have shared their style picks for the perfect winter dress, whether you're after a wear-to-work piece or a flirty, night-time number.
