Hope you are all well. I can’t believe the last time I sat down to write a blog post for Harper, we were talking about the races, summer weddings etc and here we are now in the midst of Autumn/Winter! I have to say though, I LOVE this season in terms of dressing and style. Is anyone else the same? From cosy jumpers to scarves, boots, coats – I relish it all!
With A/W styling in mind, I am going to show you my top 10 pieces from Harper’s recent stock. There really is something for everyone so whether it be a wedding, special occasion, birthday, formal event or even a night out, you will be sure to find the perfect guna (or jumpsuit!) Below is just a small taster of what you can find and I have included the link to each on their website which should make life a little easier 🙂
You can never go wrong with an LBD and I fell in love with this style – it’s extremely elegant and one shoulder is a huge trend for this season. I think the shoulder detail is what makes the dress and I would style it with either black or gold barely there sandals. A simple earring and bracelet set to match would complete the look, it’s a waow dress for sure.
Monochrome is a combo that will always be in style, no matter what season we are in. I love pieces that are very striking and this dress is for sure. It’s definitely a great transitional piece that could be worn in either summer or winter and also very flattering due to the stripe detail.
Red is one of the most beautiful shades for a dress and I love the frill detail and midi length. Personally, I don’t wear dresses that are too short (I feel like an absolute granny saying that) but I always say that if you got it, flaunt it! I can imagine this dress would be amazing at Christmas paired with black sandals like the girls have done above and you would not need a lot of jewellery as the dress is a statement in itself.
How could I not love this when it is called the Emma dress! A beautiful teal shade that looks amazing when paired with gold. The v neck detail and ruche fabric makes it a very flattering style on and it also has a very good price point of €135.
Anyone that follows me will know that I LOVE a good jumpsuit! They are the perfect alternative to a dress and it also means that you will be a lot quicker getting ready as there is a lot less fake tan to apply! The above style is absolutely beautiful – I adore the colour combination. I think the shoulder detail is what really makes it and again, due to the v neck detail and fitted waist, it would be a fantastic fit on. This is definitely no.1 on my list!
I thought this was a dress to begin with but it’s actually a two piece! You can probably see at this stage that off the shoulder is proving to be very popular, do you like this trend? The frill detail is fantastic for disguising the tummy area so this could be a good option if you are going for a meal and want to hide that bloated feeling!
If I had a formal event to go to, this would be the dress I pick 100%! I love anything that has a slit and the ruffle detail around the shoulder area is beautiful. I would style it with gold sandals / jewellery and an up-style to show off the detail in the dress although the tossled style the model has also suits it really well.
Have you ever seen a more stunning cape dress?! This is also available in a blush pink but the mustard is my favourite colour by far. If you are looking for something a little different, then this is the dress for you!
The best thing about this dress is the fact it can be styled in 3 different ways! Which look do you prefer the best? I love the first one! This dress is a timeless style and something you will be able to pull out of your wardrobe season after season. The colour is also one that will suit almost everybody.
Another stunning formal dress, I love this as it is something a little different. Red is a beautiful colour on so many skin tones and again, the ruffle detail is fantastic for disguising any lumps and bumps (which we all have!) All I need to do now is find an event I can attend so that I have an excuse to wear at least one of these dresses!
All of the dresses featured above are now available either online or in store where the girls will be more than happy to help you find the perfect style for the occasion. The only thing I can’t guarantee … is how much you will spend! Happy shopping and make sure to get in touch to show me your new purchases!
Until next time,
