I spotted this Missguided dress back in April and instantly just loved the deepness of the navy blue against the sunshine yellow and the fact that it was a whopping £21 was also why I loved it so much. This exact print and colour was all over H&M last year in shorts, tops and dresses. I unfortunately was too late to that party and only managed to find one crippled top left in a size 14. But anyway, a year on I got my mits on the print and a year on I still love it!
Yellow seems like a no-go colour when you know that you’ll be tanning by the seconds. However, a deep shade of yellow like this dress looks amazing against sun-kissed skin.
I decided to wear this on the second night in the Dominican Republic as I had had it for quite some time and was utterly obsessed with it and needed to wear it straight away. I wanted the dress to be the main focal point of my outfit with the backing support of metallic accessories ( and to be honest I just love wearing my occult choker with just about anything this season!)
The cold shoulder detailing opens the dress up, drawing on the plunge neckline which really stands out yet looks ultra feminine. The frilled hemline that is a bit gathered adds to the femininity and gives it a summery flirty feel whilst allowing a generous amount of space in the stomach region – perfect for eating lots of food. The floral print is so bold and creates a memorable yet striking look which I just love. This also helps to make the look more grown up and a relaxed fit is what you need whist on vay-cay.
I’ll be wearing this dress again on summer days and it’s also perfect for summer events where you need to dress up a bit more than your usual attire.
