Shoes: New Look
A couple of weeks ago I ordered some things from ASOS and this dress was one of the things I got. I haven’t actually worn it out yet as I’m not sure if I really like it, but here’s a potential outfit I’ve put together. That’s the main thing I hate about online shopping, things never look quite how you expected them to once you see them in the flesh. So I need some advice – how would you wear this dress?
I would normally wear black tights with a dress this length but I wasn’t sure whether black tights with a white dress would look a bit too much like I was in some kind of fancy dress. Likewise with a belt – I generally don’t like going belt-less but I didn’t want to go for a black one, maybe a brown belt would look better?
White and gold are always a good combination, so I’ve gone for some summery gladiator sandal style heels from New Look. They look dangerously high (and they are) but are surprisingly quite comfy to wear because of the big platform and lots of buckles to keep your feet strapped in. I originally bought these shoes to wear on a toga party themed night out, but I’ve actually worn them quite a lot since as they look great with skinny jeans.
My favourite part of this outfit is definitely the skeleton necklace. I quite often walk round Topshop and find nothing I particularly want to buy in the clothes section, but there’s always some jewellery I love! This necklace is great addition to a plain outfit to jazz it up a bit. I like the fact that it’s a bit of a statement piece, but it’s still delicate and not too in-your-face.
I wanted to branch out from my usual colour palette and try something lighter for the summer, but now I’m not sure. How do you wear white dresses? Is it better to keep it plain or do you like to accessorise with bold colours?
