I’ve mentioned before how difficult it can be finding the perfect dress to suit your figure. But after wearing my cute yellow dress a couple of weeks ago, I received so many compliments that I decided that this must be the style for me. So I went right out and bought another one! Clearly it’s not exactly the same, as this khaki cut-out dress has a different shoulder detail, but it hangs the same – skimming over the bust and flares out just a little over the stomach and hips. This one is also a tad shorter (which I’m not over keen on!) but I bought it from the same shop for less than 13 euros. Bargain huh?
I reckon this khaki cut-out dress is a style (I guess you’d call it A-line) that suits a lot of women – with the exception of those with a much fuller bust than me as the neckline is a little high. But it’s perfect for those wanting to hide their mid section. It’s also very comfortable to wear and so easy to style. When it gets a little cooler, I reckon it’ll look fabulous with jeans too. You know how I love wearing dresses with jeans right (and again here)?
Finding the perfect dress to suit your figure: COMFORT
To be honest, I was just a little uncomfortable wearing this khaki cut-out dress the other night because I prefer a slightly longer length (that and the fact that my second attempt at fake tan was a disaster! Luckily, the colour didn’t ‘deepen’ until the following morning when I realised what a mess it was lol!). I’m not particularly fond of my knees and thighs (hence my obsession with jeans) so I prefer to have them covered. I also prefer nothing too tight over the stomach area so, in essence, this style is great for that.
Finding the perfect dress to suit your figure: CONFIDENCE
I am very fortunate to have a figure that suits a lot of styles though. But it’s not just about finding the perfect dress to suit your figure. It’s also about finding the perfect dress that makes you feel comfortable, and confident. If everyone tells you a particular dress looks amazing on you, but you’re too self-conscious about having your legs / cleavage / arms on show, you’re not going to feel too great about it are you? So yes, listen to what people have to say (provided you trust their opinion of course!), but listen to yourself as well and see if you can find a style that makes you feel amazing on the inside and the outside.
I bought the A-line khaki cut-out dress from Pull & Bear, the same place where I bought the mustard yellow dress several weeks ago (which sadly, seems no longer available). My gorgeous tan wedge sandals and my favourite gold leather clutch are both from my favourite place. Can you guess? lol Yep you’ve got it – Massimo Dutti.
The ear-rings I’ve had for years and I can’t even remember where I bought them from. But I loved the fact that they remind me of little surfboards, little floral surfboards lol. And my amber ring was another gift from my mother-in-law. Cute isn’t it? When she first gave it to me, I liked to think there was a little prehistoric mosquito hidden inside but it’s just air, I think! 😉
