YOUR AUTUMN WARDROBE MUST-HAVES THIS 2018
IGUAZU NECK RUFFLE SKATER DRESS
FROM TED BAKER
Style tip: Coordinate your daily ensembles with a beautiful colour accent. Pesto-tinged greens are one of Ted Baker’s four proposed colour palettes for the season. While not typically associated with autumn, this hunter green dress is highlighted with bright florals that create an elegant and romantic look. A high neckline and soft ruffles form a flirty and feminine silhouette, making this piece perfect for an afternoon wedding reception, or a formal dinner appointment. Complete the outfit with one of Ted Baker’s satin-covered stilettos for that extra oomph.
