Have you got a Ladies Day event to go to? Are you fretting about frocks? Dizzied by dress codes? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
With this in mind, let’s talk dresses. Specifically, the radiant Beila Dress.
The Beila Dress is a gorgeous shape, and because she is a monochromatic palette, you can wear her with anything. Don’t be fooled by the playful simplicity of this dress, there’s a lot of flattering things going on here. The knee length pencil shaped skirt has two curved and ruched panels, which smooth the tummy. The top is sleeveless (but enough to cover the tops of your shoulders), and the neckline is a super flattering deep sweetheart shape, with overlapping panels. I think my favourite details, though, are the bows on the front of the arms. They provide enough texture that they draw the eye up and so lengthen the body.
Black and white is one of the easiest colour themes to accessorise, so you have no excuses to be anything less than fabulously coordinated!
Keep it simple with the two-tone Lillie heel or black Simone Shoe, the black Salina Cardigan or Fab 40s cardigan, and a touch of sparkle with the Lula or Margaret jewellery and the glamourous Shell Clutch!
The Chester sandal in bone or the ivory Lille are great shoes for this, or if you prefer a lower heel, have a look at the Janet or the Matis in taupe. Add the ivory Salina cardigan and a gorgeous pearl necklace, and voilá! Effortless!
… Let me be honest though. What I really want you to do with this dress, is have fun with some bright accessories. We’ve got some gorgeous shades of shoes in at the moment so there’s no excuse to let your playful side out! Start with the shoes and accessories, and then you’ll know what colours you need in your hat. Simple!
So there you have it- one dress and plenty of ways to wear it! And before you ask, no I can’t come and dress you on the day…!
