It’s no secret that I’m not a lover of black. That’s not to say I dislike it on other people but it’s not a colour I like on myself. Recently though, I’ve fallen for a new trend, monochrome, particularly when the trend makes use of lace.
The other trend that feels current right now is the not just longer but fuller skirts I’m seeing. This dress combines both and a hint of tulle thrown in. It’s pushing all my buttons.
Ankara dress by Beloved at OASIS – £79
Available from OASIS but by Beloved, (OASIS are stocking a few handpicked items from other brands that share their aesthetic,) it’s feminine yet striking and feels modern.
Do you like it readers? Have a great weekend!
The warmer weather towards the end of this week has really turned my attention towards cooler dressing and for the first time in a long time, I thought of a maxi dress. Once a style staple there seems to have been a bit of an absence of maxi’s in stores recently, or maybe I haven’t looked because I’ve been tired of them. Today I really wanted to find one that worked for stylish and casual occasions, perhaps even work. You know how I love a one-dress-does-it-all situation!
Reiss Athena Dress – £117 (down from £235)
Todays dress is from Reiss, in inky black and off white with a really unusual pattern, a not quite maxi, midi hem line and a really flattering silhouette. I love the slight rise and fall hem and it feels modern whilst also being classic enough for a formal occasion. It would work as easily at work with a blazer as at a summer function.
And if I was wearing it, I’d be feeling fierce, but also doing some obligatory twirling 😉
Big Friday Love,
