WhatLauraWore: Yours Clothing? No its mine!

Here I am wearing my new dress from Yours Clothing; I love it as it’s so easy to wear and is bound to see me through Autumn and into Winter.  I love zebra print and this black dress is the perfect way to wear the animal print trend without looking too over the top.  Having the plain black skirt with the zebra print only on the top not only provides a subtle approach to animal print but it’s also very flattering too as the solid black bottom draws the attention away from a larger tummy, to slimmer parts that want to be shown off!  The dress is elasticated just under the bust so it pulls you in and there’s belt loops too incase you wanted to add a black or perhaps gold skinny belt to it.  I paired mine with some black wedges (standard!) and some black and gold accessories; a clutch from Matalan, necklace from Muse, bangle from Primark and a watch from DKNY.  If you’re not a fan of getting your legs out the this dress would look lovely with leggings and peeptoe heel and you could also pop a black shrug on top to cover up your arms if they’re not your favourite feature, or for colder evenings.

The dress itself if a pretty generous fit, particularly in the bust, I actually had mine taken in either side underneath my arms as it was gaping with me only having a smaller chest.  I didn’t mind doing this at all as the dress fit perfectly everywhere else on me and you can’t tell at all where I’ve taken it in.  Sizes 16, 18 and 20 are single sizes but from 22 to 28 they’re dual sizes so I’d recommend buying your regular size if you have an ample bust and perhaps sizing down one size if you have a small bust like me.  The dress features the on trend dip back and the length is great too as the front comes to just above the knee and the back dips to just below the knee so it gives the effect of wearing a short dress without the worry of showing tomorrows laundry if you bend over.
