FASHION | Scarlett & Jo Sweetheart 2-in-1 Dress

Scarlett and Jo Plus Size Sweetheart 2-In-1 Dress

OMG.

This has to be one of my FAVOURITE dresses of all time from Scarlett & Jo.

The print is absolutely incredible, the cut is superb and the quality is second to none.

This is the Scarlett & Jo Sweetheart 2-in-1 Dress and I couldn't be more in love with it.  From the moment that I tried this dress on to model it at Home House for Scarlett and Jo as part of my role as Brand Ambassador, I knew that I had to own it.

The incredibly beautiful, bright floral print is what had first drawn me to this dress.  It is certainly eye catching and made up of such colourful hues that scream spring/summer for me.  Since the florals are against a black back drop and with the top part of the dress being black, this dress is ideal for anyone but especially those who feel most comfortable in back but want to try out a pop of colour in their wardrobe.

The vast mix of colours within the print means that you have so many options when it comes to your accessories.  I paired this dress with my staple black peeptoe heels but you could pick out any colour within the print to pair your shoes and bag with; a periwinkle or pink bag would look beautiful!

The top of this dress is made of a jersey fabric that feels so soft to the touch.  It has 3/4 lengths sleeves which I find so flattering, plus they add that little extra coverage and warmth which is ideal with our ever changing British weather!

The neckline is my favourite style; sweetheart.  I find this style of neckline to be so feminine, pretty and flattering.  It isn't too revealing and the look is demure yet alluring.

Like many of the Scarlett & Jo dresses, this one has the elasticated waistband that pulls you in and makes the most of your waist.  It really feels so comfortable to wear and gives the dress a beautiful shape, as does the netted lining which gives the skirt some added volume.

The whole dress is very true to size and the arms are generous with plenty of stretch in them.  I actually ordered a size up in this but could have worn the size down as I did on the Scarlett & Jo website.  I love the length of this dress as it would be fabulous regardless of how tall you are.  I'm 5ft 5" and it hits me right at the knee, so someone taller or shorter could wear it and it would still be a great length on them.


I think its important to let you all know that there's plenty of material in the skirt too.  Scarlett & Jo have cleverly designed their dresses to have spread so that when you sit down, the dresses don't ride up and show tomorrows washing.  That is a really big factor for me when choosing dresses as it can make or break my confidence, especially with my tummy being so large and hanging low.  I never have any worries in Scarlett & Jo dresses at all; they're my absolute favourite!

This dress really is one of those rare finds that makes me feel so confident, comfortable and pretty from the moment I put it on.  I never want to take it off!
