Due to ill health I have been taking a break from blogging. However, I am starting to feel better and so normal service will be resumed! One post I have been dying to share with you is about this beautiful floral print scuba dress from New Look Inspire. I was kindly contacted by New Look and offered a piece to review from 5 category trends, and of course I chose floral! The mission was to take a piece (either dress, top or trousers) and dress it up into an outfit.
Initially I was saving this dress for my Universities graduation, however I was too poorly too attend and so this post has been delayed. However – lets go back to the dress! I chose this dress because I adore mesh, the cut was beautiful and flattering and I thought the floral print was really unique and had loads of beautifully bright colours in it which would be great for dressing it up/down!
I have decided to show this look two ways – one dressed up and one dressed down.
Dressed up/Night-time –
Here’s the dress on. I went for a size 22 and was a little nervous as I have found New Look Inspire to run small in the past however this dress was a perfect fit! The scuba style fabric means that the dress holds its shape nicely but is still cute and floaty.
The mesh detailing is a nice touch because it shows a hint of cleavage without being “too” out. I’m personally a sucker for mesh.
I love the print of this fabric, it mixes pastels with the deep navy background which means there’s so many colours to go with the dress.
I decided to dress this piece up with my coral crepe blazer also from New Look Inspire which I had in my wardrobe already, a pair of navy loafers and a home-made white flower crown. My wig is daphne from the wonderful Geisha Wigs.
Dressed down/daytime –
For the daytime look I kept this jacket less and just added simple pair of black sandals.
I went for a super bright wig which matches the dress so much and is perfect for summer! My wig is Mint Soda!
Overall I adore this dress. The colours are so perfect for summer, the slightly thick fabric means it’s wearable through the day with no jacket and it’s the perfect length on me to not worry about leggings/tights. I will definitely be getting a huge amount of wear out of this dress – most likely with a different colour wig each time!
