Simplistic and Inexpensive

One crisp evening in January I decided to treat myself to a grey cocoon coat in Zara that I had been dreaming about for some time, ( check out my previous post to find out more about the coat) when I stumbled across the sale for the 20th time that month. Obviously, I was in the mood to find a bargain.


Indeed I did. I came across this black zip through dress and loved the cut out effect at the back but more importantly I loved the zip at the front with a very 70s circle tag to give the dress some life. Now for £5.99 in the sale this dress was definitely coming home with me. Now if I wore this dress on it’s own it would probably look very tacky but I bought it to wear as a sort of pinafore over tops and blouses.


The few times that I have worn this dress I usually wear my grey polo neck top for a more simplistic look ( as pictured) that is ideal for work and for chilled style days. Don’t underestimate the power of wearing grey and black, these tones can create sharp looks and by wearing a powder grey coat over it, it will add more of straight silhouette that will carry you through this somewhat cold spring time in a more sophisticated way with subtle touches of style.

I think the straight silhouette of the dress and high neck collar actually helps my look to appear  more high fashion than a typical high street look. I’m looking forward to wearing my ruffle blouses underneath the dress for warmer spring days and to adopt more of and modern shakespearean style… fingers crossed that it actually works.
