3 ways to wear our Bella dress through the seasons

As part of our 'timeless design' ethos, we love sharing outfit ideas to inspire you to get the most out of your Dilli Grey wardrobe.

This week it's the turn of our heritage block-print Bella dress. Fully lined and made from 100% organic cotton, her palette of flattering pinks, sprinkled with gold metallic overprinting is perfect for now, layered under chunky knits and cosy boots, before we switch to lighter layers as the weather brightens. Come summer she is the dream for events, sundowners and holiday dinners. A true wardrobe heroine to treasure for years to come.


Wear now: Yes, you can wear your cotton dresses in winter, you just need to master some clever layering techniques. Look for merino base layers and tights and top with a chunky knit sweater to show off Bella's beautiful tiered skirt. The tonal pinks in the heritage block prints look great clashed with a statement coat in the same colour family, or pair back with luxe winter neutrals - beautiful for a winter wedding.

Spring ready: As self-confessed 'sunshine obsessives' we are already looking ahead to brighter days and a chance to reach for those lighter layers and - joy! - bare legs. Before we're quite ready for sandals, a spring trainer and denim jacket is a great combo over a statement dress like Bella. Opt for a cream jacket for a smarter look.

Summer Dreaming: True boho summer holiday vibes at their best.

Great thrown over a bikini for a beach-side lunch, or dressed up with heels and a linen blazer for a summer wedding.
