2016 has been the year of navy for me so when it came to picking out a dress to wear on my birthday night out in Newcastle with my friends, there was only one hue I was looking for.
It wasn’t long before I stumbled across the perfect plus size maxi dress that made me say WOW!
I love how elegant and grecian it is in the way that it falls. A total classic yet on trend too with the off shoulder sleeves that are elasticated at the elbow and then float into a bell shape down to the wrist.
I didn’t think that I would suit more of a halter shape but the neckline is quite wide and the way that the dress is elasticated under the bust, ensures that it drapes beautifully and is figure flattering.
From the moment that I put it on, I was so happy with the way that it looked. I’m a big believer that feeling confident in whatever you’re wearing is SO important!
I love the back of the dress with the neck button fastening. It adds a little bit of extra detail to the dress should you have your hair pinned up or swept to one side.
This dress is made from a lightweight, crinkle fabric which is ideal for warmer weather. I’ll certainly be taking this piece away with me to Dubai and the Maldives later this year. The rich, navy colour makes it perfectly suitable to wear in early to mid autumn too when it isn’t too cold outside on the evenings.
The sizing of this dress is incredibly generous. I sized down by two sizes for this piece and I would recommend doing so. It is more of a relaxed fit anyway but I still think that this look is easily achieved with the smaller size that I’m wearing here.
For size reference, I’m 5ft 5″ and this dress skims the floor on me.
I’ve linked plenty of alternatives to my shoes and bag below as these ones were bought in the last few years. I’m all about buying really great quality pieces that will last me for years and years!
Gold and navy pair so beautifully together, especially for an evening look. For more of a daytime look, I think tan accessories would go really well with this dress.
I absolutely love this dress and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to feel glamorous and special on their next night out! It is currently ON SALE below which makes it incredible value for money for such a beautiful piece.
In tomorrow’s post, I’ll be sharing the essentials that I took with me in my clutch bag, including the gorgeous lippy that I’m wearing here so check back then!
