Chiffon-Dress Street Style

Top Tips

  • Throw an oversized chunky knit over the top for immediate warmth, practicality and fashion points
  • For everyday, keep to flats or a block-heeled boot so you’re not verging into eveningwear
  • If you’re petite adding a belt over your layers will help define your waist and keep your silhouette in proportion
  • For more wearability go for dresses that are already lined or have multiple layers of chiffon

Chiffon Dresses

You may dismiss chiffon dresses as strictly evening- and occasionwear, but it’s surprisingly easy to make them work for every day. It’s all about being creative with your layering; it’s also a great way to mix up your repertoire and maximise your cost-per-wear on pieces that tend to be more expensive.

Top Tips

  • Always opt for midi- and maxi-length dresses to balance out any oversized layers
  • Although we favour dresses, you can achieve the same effect with a midi or maxi skirt – it just requires more thought on the top half
  • Experiment with layers – come spring, a belted blazer or shacket is a great alternative to a chunky knit
  • Prints like florals and polka-dots work best, and if you need to wear tights stick to a micro fishnet or spot
