Does anyone have else have a dress in their wardrobe that acts like a safety blanket? When you don’t know what else to wear, aren’t feeling your best or just need a fail safe outfit, this dress is there for you, waiting on a hanger in anticipation of your next adventure together. I have a couple of these sitting in my wardrobe, to be fair over 60% of my dresses now fall into this category! There is something about the confidence they give you that means no matter what the occasion, you will be walking in with your head held high.
Popular high street brand New Look are currently running a Throwback Dress campaign to celebrate these items and whilst giving a new lease of life to those dresses you love and can’t bare to part with. My throwback dress is this blue number I picked up a couple of years ago from a brand stocked in House of Fraser. I’ve worn it out to dinner, for drinks with friends, nights out and even to work. Something about the effortless style with slight pinch in at the waist to give you shape that’s paired with the floaty material at the bottom, means it flatters whilst hiding any lumps and bumps.
The question now is – could a new item from New Look become my next throwback dress? I was gifted this dress with a slightly similar style however it’s a tad more revealing up top. It pinches in again at the waist and floats out to flatter your figure. With straps and ruched detail at the chest this shows off a bit more skin without being OTT. I’ve already worn this out for brunch and to work paired with a loose baggy jumper. Flattering and effortless, that’s my kinda style!
