“Mint Velvet” Celeste Print Midi Dress
Time works differently in the fashion world. While most of us are thinking of packing away our cosy woollen sweaters and suede ankle boots, designers are planning for the year ahead.
Checking out the major brands online for Spring/Summer, the dominant colours seem to be yellow, neon brights and neutrals (which I love). I’ve also noticed a lot of florals, plus, a touch of tie-dye.
Style wise, there are Spring jackets plus repeated themes such as puffy sleeves – very popular in the 80’s. I remember them well!
Maybe, I’m being a little over zealous, planning which dresses I may like from the Spring outfits currently on display, while leaving the house in warm tights, woollens and big cosy coats.
But, there’s nothing wrong with having a wish list. While doing my research, I did notice some dresses I’d be excited to wear when the weather warms up. There are also some options out there that I can wear from now through till Summer.
All it takes to transform an item into a wintertime-approved piece is a little layering action with the help of turtlenecks, cardigans or tights.
Now, with Springtime just around the corner, it’s time to check our wardrobes.
I try to be organised in my wardrobe (not always succeeding), separating my Spring/Summer from my Autumn/Winter. I will then go through my current items and decide which clothes I am keeping, or not, as the case may be.
While perusing the internet and having a wander around the shops, I found two dresses that caught my eye, which I have recently purchased. I thought you may like to see how I have styled them.
The first dress is the “Celeste Print Midi” from “Mint Velvet”. This is a “fit and flare” style. The print is floral. The colours are ink blue and blush pink. The dress has buttoned three-quarter sleeve cuffs, which I find so flattering. The hem has asymmetric ruffles, which, again, I find flattering and which. I must add, attracted me to it.
The second dress is from “Mango”. It’s a beige linen mix material, with a flared design and a midi length. Because of the colour, this dress is very versatile, and I know I will get a lot of wear from it – either with heels or by adding various jackets.
