Soft prints with 3D-effects lend these flowing dresses and tops from the September 2016 issue of BurdaStyle exceptional depth and flexibility. They are styled perfectly with coats and waistcoats sewn with cozy bouclé and cool glossy looks.

This airy layered tank blouse has a roomy width though it has a visually figure shaping influence due to the bias cut of the fabric. The asymmetric black yoke creates a striking double layer effect.


The skirt has a touch of flair, as well, with its deep contour yoke and solid color contrast pleat sections. For those who find the complete look too busy, try combining the skirt with a monochrome turtleneck or a plain shirt.


So easy to style and to wear that it is one that we would love to have the chance to wear every day. The draping bell-shaped knee-length dress with its elastic tunnel sleeve hems is constructed without a zipper.


This warm and comfortable wrap is also stylish. The open front coat is sewn with a captivating bouclé knit and includes highlight features such as the shawl collar and oversize XXL pockets. It is unlined for a look that is ideal for the cooler temperatures of autumn.


A must-have for autumn! The textured long waistcoat with shawl collar and seam pockets comes together with a tying belt. A perfect choice for days that are too chilly to go without a jacket, yet too warm for a coat.


The statement piece for the new season in a cool sixties style. A coat in the look of a blouson! Fashionistas will sew it as shown here in a laminated knit – and finish the pronounced standing collar and rounded pockets using the matte reverse side of the fabric. A practical fabric choice because the laminate process means that the fabric doesn’t need a finished hem. It doesn’t tolerate heat, though – it is best left alone or at least use the minimum setting if pressing is needed.


Thanks to a beautifully draping viscose jersey, the relaxed cut of the skirt lets the fabric cascade to follow shapely curves for this polo neck dress.


The best of autumn looks: The faux wrap skirt is sewn with a soft wool in a relaxed style. There is no gaping with this skirt because the lower skirt panel is stitched down along the right side seam.


A charming look that is purely feminine. This dress is sewn with a delicate crêpe and features a narrow loop of fabric at the neckline that defines the decolleté, as well as a contour band accent at the empire waist. The sleeves are finished with sweet flounces for an extra ladylike touch.


The simple neck and sleeveless style is a great alternative to the classic blouse for long and warm days at the office. The one way pleat in front is top-stitched to cleverly keep it in place with the polyester satin fabric.
