LETS TALK DRESSES.
Spring is officially here (so we’re told) and us girls are desperate to get our pins out. The first day I am able to go out with bare legs wearing a dress is usually when I know that Spring is actually here. As you can judge by my outfit – we’re still talking and wearing Winter weather clothes here. It’s just so chilly outside but we already started investing in Summer dresses. If you haven’t yet, you’ll find your perfect shift dress at Warehouse – my favourite is the vertical stripe twist dress. I’ve been shopping like a crazy woman every week online and in stores and trying on dresses is my favourite thing as they’re so easy to throw on. Great if I’m wearing jeans too as I can tell instantly whether it’s a great dress for layering or not.
When it comes to dresses, midi has always been my favourite. The floatier the better. I wear them with trainers, ankle boots. over-the-knee boots (remember this same dress in this post?) and whatever else feels like on the day to be honest. In fact I just bought the most beautiful white polka dress (I have a thing for polka dots) that I can’t wait to start wearing asap. Why wait for Summer? The art of layering a Summer dress can look tricky but is actually very easy to master. Just remember to stick to colours and shapes that work for your body shape and go with the actual dress you’re layering.
Here are some tips to keep in mind for layering a Summer dress when it’s cold:
* Wear wide or straight leg jeans / trousers
* Add a thin polo neck under the dress
* I would avoid layering a bodycon dress
* Throw on a blazer and belt it all up at the waist
* Oversized long jumpers look great with dresses
* Don’t be scared to mix prints like florals with checks
* Stick to black layers (like me) for a safer option
* Introduce textures: leather, denim, knits
I hope these tips are helpful and you won’t have to wait for months until it’s actually warm enough to wear your new dresses.
Have a fab week ahead everyone!
