Hello, It’s Thursday again so here is this weeks 7 Hints and Tips post. Today I am focusing on Ways to style your Summer dress.
After having a baby 12 weeks ago I did find it hard to pose for photos as I am still carrying some baby weight. But i thought I would give it a go as Summer is just around the corner and I have some BBQ’s and family parties coming up in the Summer so I would love an alternative to the dress I found a few weeks back.
The people at JD Williams offered me a dress from either their maxi dress range or just a normal summer dress from their other range. I opted for the maxi dress I am wearing below which has a gorgeous tribal print design. The top of the dress has elasticated shirring which is perfect for new mummy’s especially if you are breastfeeding. The straps of the dress are detachable as well – an extra bonus.
Now on to my tips for styling your Summer dresses. My tips are based around styling a maxi dress, but they can be adapted for a normal Summer dress
7 Hints and Tips on Styling your Summer Dress
- Denim Jacket – You could add a denim jacket to your maxi dress for slightly colder days and evenings.
This jacket from JD Williams is £30.00
- Cardigan – A lighter cardigan is perfect for just adding that something extra to your outfit. Team up with sunglasses to finish the look.
