WhatLauraWore: Lovedrobe Sequin Pleat Skirt Dress

Black party dresses are an absolute staple in my wardrobe at this time of the year but if I can find one with a little bit of sparkle then that is even better!

My latest sparkly LBD is the Lovedrobe Sequin Pleat Skirt Skater Dress that is the epitome of femininity from the top to the bottom.  The top part of the dress features a beautiful black, white and gold sequin design on the front that I was able to match perfectly with my clutch to bring out the metallic gold colour.  The dress ties at the back to cinch in the waist and then the skirt of the dress falls exceptionally well thanks to the pleated skirt.

It is a bit of a change for me in the dress department as it has mid length sleeves and I usually opt for sleeveless.  I really liked wearing something that was shaped a little differently than my usual picks, particularly as it was very cold when I wore this dress.  The sleeves are elasticated around the bottom although they were too wide to fit my arms anyway, which is a look I prefer.  The neckline is round and quite wide although I wouldn’t wear a necklace with this dress as the top part of the dress is all the sparkle that I would need.

My favourite thing about this dress is the length.  I am 5ft 5″ and it falls to my knee which is absolutely fabulous as dresses like this are usually much shorter.  I feel confident wearing this dress without tights but if you wanted to wear them you could as they would still look great and give you some extra warmth!
