Nothing beats that smug, joyous feeling of ordering something online and it turning out to be a most perfect purchase and excellent addition to your wardrobe.
My most recent success story has been that of this Missguided Floral Detail Velvet Bodycon Dress, certainly a scene stealing number and a potential christmas party dress contender.
High necked and velvet with floral embellishments and a sultry black and red colour palette, this dress is very on-trend this season and proves that you don’t need to show off some skin to be sexy.
Comfortable and true to size, I would definitely recommend this dress to others and have come up with a few ways in which I plan to style it.
More of a smart/casual look, this all black outfit is far from boring, playing around with textures from the velvet dress itself to the fishnet tights and the leather from the boots and jacket. Comfy and slightly “edgy”, this look remains very on trend and should be easy to replicate, incorporating fall/winter wardrobe pieces such as the ankle boots and leather jacket.
- Black Elsy Faux Leather Biker Jacket, Miss Selfridge, £49
- Sporty Fishnet tights, Topshop, £6.50
- MINT pointed ankle boots, Topshop, £79
- Gold Hoops, Primark, £2
Look 2 is definitely more glamorous and sexy, thanks to the deep red lipstick and slinky sandals (still very much in and seen on the feet of various supermodels). The ear cuffs are the perfect accessory for this look, by adding a touch of metallic toughness to the look whilst similarly being not too fussy to distract from the dress.
- Ella platform glitter sole sandal, Boohoo, £40
- Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Coure lipstick SPF 15, Boots/Selfridges, £22
- Curved Ear Cuff, Topshop, £9
Another reason to LOVE this dress is its subtle reference to Dolce and Gabbana’s Fall 2016 ready to wear show, which featured velvet embellished dresses and a fair few flower adornments. A very fun and playful take on fashion, this again proves how relevant and fashionable this Missguided dress is this season.
