This Autumn, prints and patterns have made their way into the shopping aisles (not that they haven’t always been in trend) and I in particular, are here for it! I am not one for plain boring outfits (insert rolling eyes emoji), one trend that is catching my eyes is printed dresses. Being a self proclaimed girly girl who also has the will to go androgynous whenever I please? Dresses always come handy, when I do not feel the need to prove to anyone that you could look feminine in whatever outfit you choose to adorn your body with. Nothing says feminine like a dress and this season we are going midi, maxi, mini and whatever length we please.
Mixing print and dresses is matchmade in heaven and fashion businesses have made sure that printed dresses are ubiquitous this season. From dotted, geometric to botanical, printed dresses are all the
rage craze this season. Dresses work for every occasion imaginable: weddings, holidays, casual day look or dressed up for an evening. I am currently loving my Boohoo Satin Kimono Style Maxi Dress. There are many things I love about this dress. First and most importantly, it is a wrap style dress and therefore suitable for all body times, it is maxi length and therefore has the quality to elongate your body, maxi dresses are a great transitional piece for the colder weather, the low neck line ( if you decide to wear it like that) adds a sultry touch. However, If like me, you prefer your bosom covered, legs are always alluring. Finally, just pin the dress up where you feel confident and there, you are living your best life, in a gorgeous dress with a price point, that does not break the bank. I styled this outfit in two different ways out of a myriad of ways to demonstrate how versatile printed dresses are. Check out other Boohoo dresses HERE.
With this outfit, I was going for a svelte look. I thought to pair this beautiful printed dress up with a pair of sock boots. If the legs were coming out I felt that they needed to maintain their appeal. Wearing dark coloured boots and pointy toes at that, gives the illusion of longer legs. To complete the look, cinching my waist in, with a wide belt was definitely in order.
I figured that the dress could also be worn as a kimono. For this look, I went for a casual yet put together look. I chose the green coloured skirt because not only does it combine the midi, pleated and tropical trends into one, it also helped for the green colours in the kimono/dress to pop out. I loved how relaxed yet chic this look was. After all it’s autumn, so I though to tie the look together with a fedora hat and a convincing choker, which I made by wrapping around my neck, the tie belt of the kimono.
