Though it happens every year, the arrival of autumn somehow always feels unexpected. The very idea of transitional weather seems absurd: Is that…rain? Why is it bitingly cold when I leave the house but sweltering when I pop out at lunchtime? Of course, the big question on everyone’s lips is "Will I need a coat?" but before you trouble yourself with layers, consider introducing some autumn dresses into your wardrobe.
Whether you style them trainers and bare legs or with tights and boots, a long-sleeved dress is a perfect look for the cooler season. And despite what you may think, autumnal dressing doesn't have to be all doom and gloom. You can still inject some colour into your wardrobe despite the darkening skies.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best long sleeve dresses for that chilly autumn air.
