To dress or not to dress
As we fast approach Summer and the temperatures rise do you reach for a dress?
Dresses are a bit like marmite you either live in them or struggle to know what suits you so avoid them at all cost.
If you long to wear a dress then these next few pointers may help you take the plunge.
Firstly dresses are a great way to experiment with patterns and prints so if your everyday wardrobe is quite plain coloured then a dress can be a way to express your inner style.
Pattern equals camouflage! The eye cannot focus on a flowing pattern so lumps and bumps are instantly disguised.
Dresses are great for elongating the length of the body creating a column effect and avoiding the body being cut in half by two different colours as is often the case with separate pieces.
It is so much easier to pull on a dress than combine an outfit of separates making it the perfect item for busy time strapped woman.
Dresses are so versatile a shirt dress can be worn open as a long jacket over trousers, jeans or even another dress.
Kaftan style dresses are so cool and non-restrictive in the summer, add a wide belt and wedge sandals to take it from day to evening.
Another fabulous shirt dresses worn open over shorts as a long line summery jacket.
Spotty dresses are so versatile and can be dressed up or down everyone can wear polka dots and have their 'Pretty Woman' moment!
Broderie anglais dresses scream summer and look so pretty.
Usually associated with being white, Broderie Anglais is textured with holes and isn’t solid so it can work well for everyone even if white isn't your best colour.
Once you find what style suits your body shape you won't look back as a dress is the easiest thing to pull on and look fabulous in.
