Whether it's the promise of a new season or an upcoming occasion, planning a dress refresh is always a good idea.

Women's dresses sit at the heart of contemporary womenswear and hero styles can be dressed up or down to suit easy breezy weekends, boardroom meetings, or evening celebrations.

The Maxi Dress

It's time to ditch the notion that long dresses offering ample amounts of coverage are uninspiring. In fact, whether you're dressing up for a special occasion or are looking for a piece that will instantly lift your self-confidence, you simply can't go wrong with a maxi or midaxi dress.

Play with pattern and colour to create a fun summertime evening look with a floaty midaxi dress, black heels and a beaded clutch bag. Alternatively, accessorise a stone, cream or white calf-length dress with bold jewellery and flats to bring an element of vibrancy to a sophisticated look.

V-neck maxi dresses can be easily accessorised with a statement necklace, making this style a great addition to your evening wardrobe. A halter neck maxi with a full skirt and fitted waist is a warm weather essential that can be styled with trainers or sandals for a casual look. If versatility is at the top of your must-have list, smock styles with square necklines can be accessorised to the max or worn as is with a pair of trainers for a laid-back off-duty model look.

The Midi Dress

A midi length shirt dress is a wardrobe must-have because it is such a versatile piece that can be worn in countless different ways. Pair a white linen or cotton shirt dress with a straw hat and neutral tan sandals to embrace the "coastal grandmother" aesthetic that is one of the current season's hottest trends.

Alternatively, a block colour shirt dress can be layered over leggings or tights before being paired with loafers and a satchel for a look that will take you from day to night.

The Jumper Dress

Not only are jumper dresses available in a variety of prints, colours and textures, but they can be paired with different accessories to create completely different looks throughout the cooler seasons.

For relaxed weekends, throw on a cable knit jumper dress with tights and trainers for a laid-back look that will take you from running errands to a casual brunch with friends. Other outfit options that allow the jumper dress to be the star of the show include trench coat and leather boot combinations, which will allow you to perfect your between-season looks in the unpredictable weather conditions these transition periods throw our way.
