WhatLauraWore: A Tan-less Night

A night without a sun tan is a pretty rare occurrence for me but here I am, rocking the pale skin look.  Wearing a super pretty dress really helps when you haven’t got time to tan as it ensures that I still feel pretty and put together, ready for a night on the tiles.

The super pretty dress that I speak of is the Border Print Drop Back Chiffon Dress from AX Paris.  I have a number of dresses in this style as the fit and shape is just so beautiful, particularly for the summer.  The dress features a sweetheart neckline that is so flattering on the bust and it has an elasticated back which gives it a really comfortable fit.  It comes with detachable straps although I prefer to wear it strapless as it holds up really well, doesn’t fall down and it keeps its shape.  The border print is simply gorgeous too and one of my favourite prints that AX Paris have done as it is so different to anything else that’s out there in plus size fashion.  I’m wearing another dress from them in this print here.

    Gorgeous dress – very Rococo! I feel compelled to put a cardigan over anything without sleeves, but this is so darn cute! The issue is never finding a cute dress but finding different ways to style it or cover my arms. How would you wear a shrug or cover-up over this? I would want to keep it glam, and cardigans can move dresses into the librarian category mighty quickly, so I'm curious how you'd keep it flirty…

      I would wear just one of the small boleros or knitwear shrugs, nothing bulky or long and I'd keep the colour nice and plain, picking out one of the colours of the dress.Laura xxx
