Fashion: The Ultimate Dress List with Lyst

what emma did

As most of you who read the blog will know, I’m a huge fan of dresses. So much so I constantly blog on here about why I think it’s important to have a wardrobe which holds a select number of classic and timeless dresses, which you can whip out every year when you are truly stuck what to wear for an occasion. I love dresses so much, that it’s why I set up my own boutique, purely specialising in them. The above shot is a sneak peak from behind the scenes at my latest shoot over the weekend, and as you can see, one of the styles is a real traditional ‘year-rounder’ dress. I think it’s quite nice to not always follow trends every once in a while, and just stick to real classic flattering styles that won’t date. With this in mind, I thought I’d jump in before December kicks in to highlight a bit of a dress wish list of mine, based on non-trend, classic favourites…

My wish list ‘top picks’ type gallery comes from one of my newest online inspirations: Lyst. Lyst is a¬†fashion tech company based in London and New York, which is a website dedicated to creating a shopping experience unique to every user. The more you use the platform, the more Lyst learns about you as a customer and your shopping habits, so you start to only see things you love! In addition to making a tailored shopping experience, users can also lyst items to plan their wardrobes and create wish lists, and also be alerted when anything they lyst goes on sale or comes back in stock. Personalised shopping experiences are definitely the way forward, with busy lives and schedules making shoppers a lot more impatient, and wanting to spend time being shown exactly what they are interested in.

As I know a lot of you will be on the hunt for dresses this party season, I wanted to share with you my ‘lyst’ of some super gorgeous, quality styles. You’ll notice they are mainly designer, but this means they are well made, luxury items than plan to stay in your wardrobe for a long time…


The above dresses, in order, are Liu Jo Asymmetric Dress With Faux Leather Inserts, Mara Hoffman Embroidered Mini Dress and Paul Smith Womens Black Silk Dress¬†with Anemone Floral Placement. They are super stunning and incorporate a touch of something different, whether it be a material, print or cut, yet won’t date season after season.

I also have on my ‘lyst’ four beautiful styles from the designer label Solace – the dresses below are all maxi styles yet have stunning cuts and finishes, making them uber stylish and fail safe for those all important occasions….
