They can be worn over your summer dresses with knee-high socks for a chic Fall feel or used to keep warm on the chillier school run. There are so many options for trench coats now, with both light and heavyweight styles.

Just above the knee dresses

They can be worn without tights for a trip to the beach or with tights when heading back to the office.
It can be difficult to find plus size clothing UK on the high street, but if you’re looking to add a few staple dresses to your collection that can be worn both in hot and colder seasons, there are plenty of options online.
