STYLE NOTES
Newest dresses for the season 

Although at times the weather can make it easy to forget, spring is here, which means dresses and bare legs are back on the agenda – hooray! A huge trend this year, wrap, midi, mini, strappy, slip – or even a jumpsuit – anything goes where dresses are concerned right now. Here’s how we’ve been wearing them at MVHQ.

 

The Rimona dress, as seen on Charlie, MV model - A key piece for transitional wardrobes, we've styled up our long-sleeved Rimona Animal Print Wrap Dress with a denim jacket and flatform sandals for a step-into-spring vibe that's still appropriate for slightly cooler days. White accessories are big news this season – try a petite white bag like the Lianna.

 

The Utility Dress, as seen on Debbie, PA to Directors - I usually opt for a more casual look, choosing our jeans, knits and trainers over dresses. However, this utility style dress is perfect as it has more of a relaxed feel. I absolutely love the colour and, because it’s plain, it means I can pair with our animal print accessories. The Frankie Gladiator Sandals are a real favourite in head office and the Darcie Zebra Print Bag goes with everything.

 

The Stripe Wrap Dress, as seen on Lucinda, MV make-up artist - You’ll usually find me in various forms of dark skinny jeans and white trainers, until summer when I like to dip my toes into colour. This dress<br />
is exactly what I’d wear for a summer bbq or after work drinks.<br />
My favourite white trainer still features (so comfortable and classic)<br />
and the hot pink colour gives my skin a holiday glow (despite being covered up over the winter months. What’s great about this dress is that, if required, I can ditch the trainers and pair with a summer sandal and my look moves from day to night in one simple step.

 

The Penny Slip Dress, as seen on Ella, Footwear & Accessories Buyer - Wearing a knitted tee beneath as slip dress, with lots of layered jewellery, is one of my favourite trends this season. While it’s been a bit colder I have been putting a knit over the top of my dresses, which makes you feel like you have two-in-one outfits. Styling the look with our Philippa Strappy Sandals gives it a more dressed up vibe. The Sam Saddle Bag is great as can be worn three ways – over the shoulder, as a clutch, or around the waist!

 

The Black Spot Mini Dress, as seen on Charlie, MV model - We're making a case for year-round black this season, and our Spotted Mini Dress couldn't be easier to style. Lighten the palette with earthy tones like on this Ochre Nubuck Biker Jacket or our Kara Sand Suede Slouch Boot, and channel the woven accessories trend with our Elle Wooden Handle Woven Bag (read the full feature on how to style black in the warmer months.
