I know it’s a cliche, but when else in the year are you supposed to wear red, other than Valentine’s Day. Despite not knowing anyone who actually goes out for supper on this date in February, I am using it as inspiration for todays post. There are so many striking dresses out there with flecks of red and pink in, it’s a great excuse to share them with you.
With Spring around the corner, there is also no point buying another black dress (although I am a big fan of black dresses in the summer, tanned shoulders, bare legs – it’s good look) but why not buy something you can wear now with tights and a jacket that will also work when the weather gets a little balmier?
Ganni Wrap Dress £150
A huge fan of this new label (well, it’s new to me). The prints are bold and the cuts are great.
I love the shoulders on this neat little dress – the width will make your waist look smaller than it actually is and the cut out sides are subtly sexy.
I am not entirely sure about the stitching across the chest, but as it is Isabel, I am trusting that it looks as good on as it does on the peg. Perhaps for those with smaller chests…
& Other Stories has some beautiful dresses this season and this one has caught my eye. The pattern and colours are so different and concur up lovely thoughts of rose in the sun.
Pretty ruffles and the mid length that goes up n the middle makes it understatedly sexy.
Va va voom! There won’t be any more messing around in this punchy red leopard print dress.
So feminine and ethereal – I want to float about in this on the beach this summer, but I think an advance purchase would work well now, toughened up with a chunky scarf and biker boots.
There is a lot of print this season and I am embracing it. The general rule of thumb – the size of the print should reflect the size of you – small ditsy print on petites and larger prints on stronger frames. Same goes with size of sunglasses, handbags although o add drama, size up one thing!
It’s the Vera Wang esque black tie that drew me in to this maxi dress. If it wasn’t quite so expensive, I would be all over this.
Mango Striped Midi Dress £29.99
No round up is complete without a dress from the high street boss – Mango. This dress wouldn’t suit everyone, but if the lines and colours work on your body shape and colouring, it’s a total knockout.
The triple band on this floaty ruched waist tunic dress is great disguise for Christmas bellies if you still haven’t shed it and the long arms are great for those that haven’t quite had that much needed kiss of colour.
So, do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day? I think it will be Silent Witness and a takeaway for us, as we are having our first night away in about 2 years the following weekend.
Do I sound excited?
Have a lovely week and don’t forget – keep it pink or red!
