You know when you pull on a dress and you just know that it was meant to be? Well thats exactly the feeling I got when I found the Scarlett and Jo Crochet Collar Fit and Flare Dress.
This dress sits bang in the middle of day wear and evening wear, leaving you looking put together and ready to go with very minimal effort. It is everything I have needed yet didn't know that I was looking for.
The Crochet Collar Fit and Flare Dress is made from their super soft crepe fabric which not only gives it a great shape but plenty of comfort too.
It has a fabulous weight to it which is the high quality that I have come to expect from Scarlett and Jo and this helps to reassure me that it wont blow up at the first sign of a breeze. Definitely an essential point to note when you're living on the North East coastline!
This dress has been cut incredibly well. I love the fit and flare style because it suits so many different body shapes.
It really is a flattering cut that has been created with a true plus size figure in mind because when you sit down, there is plenty of material, ensuring that the garment moves with your body and doesn't ride up. If you've ever worn a dress, sat down and found it to be that short its more reminiscent of a long top, then you'll know what I mean here!
I found this particular piece to be true to size, if a little generous, so when purchasing, I'd personally recommend buying your usual size.
This is a size 24 and I'm between a 22 and 24 generally and it fits me perfectly, with plenty of room still it in. I love how comfortable it feels to wear; theres not one part of it that feels too tight or short and I can wear it confidently during the day or at night.
Many of you often say to me that you prefer garments with arms in them and this dress certainly ticks that box with the two thirds sleeve length. Theres some give in them too so if you're worried about them being too tight, don't be; I found them to be a great fit.
The black colour makes it suitable for everyday wear and I love the pearl detailing on the white crochet collar. So sweet.
I have loved the look of tops and dresses with collars for so long but whenever I've tried them on, I've always found the necklines to be so restrictive, whereas this one isn't like that at all.
I've styled this piece here with some staple black heels and my gorgeous Mulberry Lily but it looks equally as great with some flats, a jacket and tights or leggings if the weather should warrant it.
I've been wearing this Scarlett and Jo dress over the last couple of months and have really found out just how crucial this type of piece is to my wardrobe. Mostly because of how easy it is to pop on and head out of the door, which when you're in a rush all of the time like I am, is very much needed!
You can pick up your own Scarlett and Jo Crochet Collar Fit and Flare Dress here and if you're looking for a little designer handbag indulgence then the Mulberry Lily is a fantastic option.
