I still love to wear dresses even in the colder months and I’m absolutely in love with Boohoo’s Emily Short Sleeved Smock Dress in Khaki*£15. The dress is available in a 16-24 and comes in Khaki, Grey and black, I actually sized down to a 20 as the dress is cotton and is elasticated under the bust so I knew I could get away with a smaller size to nip in under my boobs! The colour is stunning and I like the mid short sleeves on it, the length is just on the knee for me which is perfect to either wear with a pair of ankle boots or I’ve paired mine with some black wedge heels.
Perfect to chuck a coat/cardigan over, or even jumper over it to look like a skirt! Would still recommend sizing down, I had no spanx on here but if you were worried about a VBL then you could always chuck on a pair!
