Regardless of today’s trends, florals will always be one of my favourite things to wear during spring and summer. I know, florals for spring, groundbreaking! However, making florals work during autumn is another thing. Stradivarius and other high-street shops made it easier for us by bringing out a bunch of dresses one can easily rock with boots and jackets all whilst being feminine and edgy depending on the pieces you combine them with, cue this beautiful maxi-dress I got.
As I’m not into chafed thighs, I’m not the biggest fan of dresses or skirts, so I’m all about the somewhat recent trend of wearing a dress with jeans. The fact that the dress has sleeves and is long enough to cover all the right areas makes it one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. I absolutely love the bohemian vibes it gives off with the colourful flowers on a black background, as well as those bishop sleeves with ruffles, aka Jack Sparrow sleeves in my world.
I wasn’t expecting this to be sexy or tight, but the peephole collar (that I had to pin) and tight waist actually did make this hug you in all the right places and make your bum look good. Also, the fact that this is so versatile makes it even better. I can wear it as a kimono over jeans and a basic white shirt by leaving it unbuttoned, or I could also wear it buttoned all the way down with heels for a chic look.
