Hello there, its time to share some more fashion style tips, I will be sharing my thoughts on some printed styles that I purchased over the months that, I have worn and love! Prints are every where this season from dresses, jumpsuits, trousers and tops. I love a good printed style where you can dress it with accessorizing it with the right types of accessories e.g shoes, handbags and jewellry. I own a fair bit of printed clothing this summer but now as we are drawing near to the month of September I am now seeing Autumn styles coming in stores and online which happen to be leopard prints!
My searches on line in printed dresses are in a vast selection for this seasons trending styles so, here are some I picked out in some wrap style midi dresses..
ANTHROPOLOGIE MAGNOLIA PRINTED WRAP DRESS at £150.00
Loving the yellow shade with the flowery print and frill edging round the neck line and on the cuffed sleeve and at the bottom the frill cascades high up and then tying in at the waist with it wrapping over. A GREAT LOOK! and one that is fabulous to wear this summer paired with flat white sandals or wedges that tie round in on the ankles.
So when it comes to styling I find experimenting different kinds of print styling is a good thing as, abstract designs and stripey prints are just as versatile to have in your day to day wardrobe. I’ve come across many prints in tops and dresses in H&M stores many that are in midi long styles, as I am not one to really wear the dreaded short style type of dresses and having slim legs I do prefer midi styles.
H&M PATTERNED WRAP DRESS at £49.99
This is a nice basic V neck wrap dress with a subtle print design and midi length sleeves that gives this dress that nice comfortable styling. I would personally pair this dress with some great pieces of jewellry round the neck and a bracelet too. Great to wear it on the beach with a sun hat and of course with the flat sandals too.
NATURAL BEACH SLOGAN POPPY HAT at NEXT £20.00
MULTI STRAND NECKLACE at H&M £6.99 perfect styling for this dress as it has the V neck cut.
Next up here is a great look another Floral print wrap dress at MATCHESFASHION.COM this is a DIANE VON FURSTENBERG number and I love this one!
I love this bright orange shade and the print, again its a midi style and this would look good with some high heel sandals as well as flats! shoe examples with this dress are below in images on what I think would look fab on ..
I have picked out some shoe styles at ZARA here we have a pair of High heel shoes in a shade of orange with a bow detail.
Also chose a Braided flat mule these shoes I have chosen are choices to pair up with the orange dress, as you can dress up or down by wearing heels or flats, if you like to go for the whole outfit with matching shoe colour as well then go for it! or you can base the footwear by dressing with nude neutral tones like I have shown you in the examples on the images I have picked out.
ZARA BOW DETAIL SHOE at £25.99
ZARA BRAIDED FLAT MULE at £29.99
So moving on next up this is a wrap over floral ruffle printed dress that I bought on line at NEW LOOK in the sales. Now this was one of my choices to wear it on holiday going back a couple months ago and I packed it in my suitcase but, didn’t get to wear it at the time as LA in the spring time was cooler and this dress is just above the knee! and I know I said I only like to wear Midi styles but I thought some leg on show wouldn’t be a bad thing! wore it a few times here in the U.K. as we had a glorious hot summer, but I still prefer long to midi styles in dresses..
WRAP OVER RUFFLE DRESS at NEW LOOK bought in sales at £17.00
Next up is a red and black floral printed dress that I bought last year from H&M. This dress csught my eye on display, in store on the mannequin and I loved the sleeves on it. This dress is now out of stock seasoned last year AW17 but I have worn it a number of times this year and last!
Great with boots or sandals as the length of this dress is basically midi maxi style and pleats through in the fabric, it has a elasticated waist to cinch in, and almost gives the effect that the bottom part of the dress looks like a skirt!
H&M last year AW17 season priced at £49.99
Accessorize by basing on just wearing some nice earrings, here are some examples on pieces you can pair up with the dress.
H&M TASSELLED EARRINGS at £8.99
Lastly we have two more dresses that I purchased this year one from John Lewis in the Sugar Hill Boutique range and one that I ordered online at ASOS in the Warehouse brand. Excuse my photo image as it is come out slightly dark in me taking the photo wearing this dress!
ASOS- Warehouse- WHITE FLORAL VINTAGE DRESS at £29.99
This dress is cotton in fabric and has a draw string type tie belt with tassels at the bottom and is good to cinch in at the waist also had the same ties at the neck line. My thoughts on this dress at first I wasn’t sure until I tried it on and it didn’t look as bad on.
Both purchases were bought online some months ago and I have worn, as these dresses are a nice length and the model wearing in the picture above she is taller, so I guess on me being 5 feet 4 inches the dress comes just below my ankles.
The Sugar hill dress below I love as this is fitted at the waist line and the fabric is a polyester cotton with, a tie at the neckline and zips in at the back. Wore this out with family at dinner and it was suited to wear for any type of occasion.
So there you have it printed styles this summer that I have shared for you all to see and now that we are in the month of September I will be slowly getting my Autumn Winter range in order.
SUGAR HILL BOUTIQUE DRESS at £25.00
