Did you have a good weekend? I can't believe it's July already! Have you guys been watching Wimbledon or enjoying the lovely weather? Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post (HERE). I am glad to have been able to introduce you to some fun opera :) Anyway, this week I am sharing another outfit post with one of my new favourite things, double layered dresses!
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I am a lover of simple pieces. Those that already speak for themselves and do not require much, if not anything, additional. This is not only because I believe that less is more, but also because I am quite hopeless at accessorising, and this dress is definitely a reflection of my style.
The pattern here is enough to give this dress the attention it deserves and doesn't require any extra accessorising at all. I usually shy away from patterned pieces as I find that they usually look quite unflattering on me. For some reason, however, I really like this patterned dress! Maybe because it is quite simplistic, or maybe because I am a huge fan of the monochromatic look. Either way, I love this new addition to my wardrobe!
From my last outfit post (HERE) it is probably quite evident that I do love a bit of layering, so it is no surprise that I love double layered dresses. Because of the t-shirt crop top, I find this kind of dress very flattering and also gives the illusion of a slimmer waistline. I also love one pieces like this because you don't have to rack your brain trying to figure out what top will go with what skirt/trousers. So basically this a pretty stress free yet stylish outfit!
I actually managed to snap this dress up for £9.99 from Shelikes on Ebay (I will link it below). What a bargain! The material is not too thick or too thin, meaning it is perfect for the hot weather we have been having lately. If there is one thing I wish this dress had, it would be a cut out back. I just love pieces with a cut out detailing as I think it is such a subtle way in showing some skin without being too revealing. But for the price and how gorgeous this dress is, it is only a very small point!
As there was already so much going on with the dress I just paired it with my favourite ankle strap heels (also featured in my Tulle Outfit HERE), and a black clutch. If you wanted to glam this look up a bit more, some sparkly heels, or a sparkly clutch would go amazingly well too!
Are you a fan of double layered dresses? I hope you all have a fantastic week ahead, and have a chance to enjoy the gorgeous weather!
Take care and speak soon!
