Nobody likes to see the back of summer, even if it hasn’t been the warmest on record. But one good thing about the coming of autumn is the new collections hitting the high street. If you are a Pepperberry fan, you will be jumping up and down with glee when you see the latest additions. We have a couple of great tops, a fabulous prom dress, a classic shirt (which we shall be raving about at a later date), but for now we will concentrate on four super, stylish, day dresses, all new for autumn.

Ribbon Waist Dress

The Ribbon Waist Dress is the ultimate statement dress. The colour is gorgeous raspberry that will look great on blondes, brunettes & redheads and will be flattering for pale or olive skin. This dress is sleeveless, with a tape trim waist panel and tapered pencil skirt. It has a split shoulder detail and exposed zip, which gives it a fashion edge. Team it with black patent heels and a black cardi, or grey suede knee high boots and grey tailored jacket. For an evening look, try brightly coloured accessories, like electric blue heels and tux jacket.

The Classic Shift Dress is a perfect LBD, it is such a classic shape that it will not date, so you will look great in this, year after year. This dress is a sleeveless shift, available in black, with a lovely waist detail and flattering pleats falling from the waist, creating a lovely tulip shape.

The Ponti Zip Back Dress available in black is a great work-wear dress. It is based on one of our best-selling dresses; it has a scoop neck, ¾ length sleeves and side pockets (that make a feature of the dropped waist). This dress is a very flattering shape and will become a wardrobe staple, if ever you are stuck with what to wear.

Happy Monday to all of our Bravissimo ladies, how’s your week looking so far?

Your calendar may already look like a small child has been let loose on it with a biro. Your ironing pile might have started to resemble Ben Nevis and you still need to fit in taking the dog to the vet and that report for work…take a deep breath and relax! Our lives are getting busier and busier, with so many women now juggling work, childcare and other commitments, there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the week and it’s no surprise we all feel a bit exhausted by Friday.

A new book by Leo Bormans called The World Book of Happiness, claims that one of the secrets to contentment is to ‘get organised’. So how can we get organised, if it doesn’t come naturally? We could start by writing appointments in a diary, instead of the back of an old envelope. Buy and send birthday cards in advance, set the alarm for a little earlier and get a head start. Write lists (lots of lists) and take on some tips from an organised friend. At least Bravissimo can take care of your wardrobe with a few bright ideas from Pepperberry.

Knot Gather Jersey Dress

How would you fancy getting dressed in the morning in half the time with absolutely no fuss? We have some fantastic dresses from Pepperberry that could transform the way you dress for good. If you like your separates, you may not have considered the ‘good old dress’. But the dress is such an easy- to-wear piece of clothing, one action and you are in, there’s no decision over what top goes with which pair of trousers. Dresses look stylish and they can be smartened up for work meetings, or dressed down with knitwear and they also work brilliantly from day to night. We have some fabulous new arrivals, there is an easy-to-wear dress for everyday of the week.

Monday’s dress is the Knot Gather Jersey Dress, in gorgeous emerald, it has a ¾ length sleeve, a knot under the bust and gathers, which are great at flattering the tummy area. This dress also feature hidden tabs on the shoulders, which hook around your bra straps, this will keep the dress in place …Genius!
Tuesday’s dress is the fabulous Ponti Zip Back Dress in red, this is a heavier jersey dress for those colder days, it is a real classic, with a scoop neck, exposed zip and scooped pockets.
Wednesday’s dress is the Long Sleeve Drape Dress, this dress has long sleeves and a twist front, with lots of gathers over the bust and over the tummy, making it a super flattering option, it also has a mesh lining over the bust, to create a smooth silhouette.

So ladies if you haven’t rocked that frock yet, this is the week to start. More ideas to follow on Thursday…

Ponti Zip Back Dress by Pepperberry

The kids are going back to school and this signals the end of the holidays and knuckling down to work. The summer has been, well, sunny at times, it has bucketed down on some days and has been a bit chilly on others, a little more than we would expect. So now the knitwear and coats that are appearing in the shops don’t look so out of place at all. And there is something quite exciting and optimistic about the new collections and welcoming in a brand new season.

Having packed away your thong sandals, maxi dresses, and the last bits of your summer wardrobe, you may now be panicking about what you are going to wear to work, but help is at hand in the way of Pepperberry. Our new autumn collection has some lovely pieces that will help you ease back into work with effortless style.

Everyone needs a Classic Blazer in their wardrobe and this one from Pepperberry could form the basis of your autumn and winter wardrobe, it is so wearable. It will look great with everything you already have and any new Pepperberry pieces you are thinking of buying. It is one-buttoned, which is very flattering for bigger boobs and has a nipped in waist, It also has a slight sheen which will make it great for an impromptu after work drink.

The Drawcord Jersey Dress is already proving to be a favourite with our Bravissimo ladies. It comes in rose and chocolate marl and is a very versatile dress. It will look fabulous with tan boots and a tan bag and can be transformed with accessories like our gorgeous Pleat Scarf in pink. This dress is super flattering, because it fits under the boobs at the narrowest part and the added drawcord at each side can be adjusted, so it fits perfectly. It is recommended that a plunge bra is worn with this dress and if it proves a bit low for the office, a cami in a contrasting colour, like pink with the chocolate dress, or if you opt for the dress in rose, try a chocolate cami underneath.

The Ponti Zip Back Dress is a perfect work dress, it is in a heavy stretch fabric and has a contrast lining and exposed zip, which is a feature that will be seen in this autumn/winter collections. It has scoop pockets, that will enhance those real curves and it is available in aubergine.

Don’t forget you don’t need to buy loads, just a few well chosen pieces that you can mix and match.
