WhatLauraWore: The Works Do

I recently went to a Christmas party night with some work colleagues and thought I’d share some pics of my outfit with you all.  To me, dressing for a work night out requires a level of class but of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t look glamorous too.

Embellished Contrast Drop Back Dress, £40

This beautiful dress is the Embellished Contrast Drop Back Dress from AX Paris.  I love the classy nude chiffon top of this dress and the silver sequin flowers are so pretty and make this dress easy to pair with any metallic shade of jewellery and accessories.  The dress is elasticated under the bust to create shape and pull the wearer in, usually at their slimmest part.  The black under skirt of the dress is pretty short but the black chiffon layer over the top stops it from being too revealing.  I love the drop back style of the dress as it feels really glamorous when walking.  The chiffon material is floaty and flattering as it skims over my tummy.  I’ve worn a similar shaped dress to this which was also from AX Paris; check out my Peacock Dress here.

I’m also wearing my new wedge shoe boots from New Look.  These are from the wide fit range and although I don’t have wide feet, I find these to be the most comfortable heels that New Look offer as they give your feet room and reduce the pain of wearing heels.  I danced all night and left at the end of the night without sore feet- result!
