This year, we set ourselves a mission to find a party dress to suit all builds and complexions. A ladies swing dress that would make its wearer feel simultaneously fabulous, fun and elegant.
Let me introduce you to Stop Staring Dresses Graciela, a twirly satin swing dress in sumptuous aubergine.
So, why is this swing dress just so good? For starters, the rich purple colour looks great on everyone- it warms up cool blondes, compliments rich chestnuts and is a beautiful contrast to auburn and copper. If you are pale, the satin will give you a soft glow, and if you are dark skinned, the warmth of the purple will highlight the warm tones in your skin.
And you know, purple is one of those very special colours that goes with both gold and silver, so no matter your preference, it is easy to accessorise. I just love it with the Remix Vintage Shoes Ritz Shoes, in gold or silver.
Now, it being Christmas, you want a dress that you can eat, drink and dance in without feeling self-conscious. The full circle skirt hides all manner of festive faux-pas. Enjoy yourself, have another canapé, another glass of champagne and head to the dance floor to spin and twirl the night away.
If you want to give the skirt some extra 'oomph', why not pop a net petticoat, like the Piper polka dot petticoat underneath it for a 1950s silhouette that'll really nip in your waist.
For a dress that's as fabulous, festive, fun and feminine as you are, choose this ladies swing dress. See you on the dance floor!
