firstly …how is it almost may? my goodness.
with that comes longer, sunnier days (for the most part) and we’re starting to see more people introduce colour back into their wardrobes. personally i’m a colour/patterns all year round kinda gal, but i do not judge! alongside this, there’s less layers and clothes with more breathable materials.
i think a dress like this is perfect for this spring, semi transitional weather. if there’s a particularly warm day (or just in the summer) it looks lovely with bare legs/arms and some sandals, but equally when its a bit chilly it looks sweet with a nice cardie and maybe some cute socks peeking out of ankle boots. i’m all about versatile clothes.
the waist is gathered with elastic so creates a slight pleated look which you can wear as-is, but me being me, i wear a thin belt too. it also has pockets! i am definitely not the only one that gets excited about pockets in dresses right? if i could change one thing about this dress though, i’d love if the bottom half had more material (like a circle skirt?) so you could add more volume as well as letting it drape.
one of my favourite lipsticks (wet ‘n’ wild in ‘rosebud’) looks lovely with the coral pink in this dress, and i added the bow in to give it a slight retro look too. definitely an outfit i see myself repeating a lot throughout the year!
how would you style this dress? would you keep it simple or add some accessories?
