I have to admit that I don’t have the most glamorous cupboard. Sure I’ve gathered a few nice dresses for events that I have attended, but I was in desperate need for a little black dress for when my jeans and fancy-top just won’t cut it.
Finding the perfect one is however easier said than done. Since I struggle the most with dressing up during the colder months, one with sleeves was essential. I also didn’t want it to be too tight (so that I can enjoy the food) or in a shiny fabric.
Sweet, colourful lace dresses have been everywhere this summer and now it is the Southern Hemisphere’s turn to try this trend. Luckily we have a great variety of looks to inspire us. Whether you’re going sweet and innocent as Katy Perry did in her blue Monique Lhullier dress or you want to add a little sexiness as Katie Cassidy did in her shocking pink Zuhair Murad, there is something for everyone. Keep the look modern by adding bright lips and sticking to neutral or matching accessories. I think this is a great trend to try for those summer weddings which are fast approaching. My personal favourite is Miranda Kerr’s feminine yellow Reem Acra dress, but I would have paired it with softer accessories. Which look is your favourite?
