How to style a silk dress in the daytime

 In Style & Beauty

Hello and good evening you lovely person reading this! I haven’t done a style post in a while so thought I would shake things up a bit as these are actually my favourite posts to both shoot and write! I apologise for the puns in advance…

So, let’s rewind… there I was, surfing the sites for silk dresses and I came across this gorgeous number from Missguided... as I was adding it to my bag it occurred to me I may not have that many places to wear it as I don’t really go to many places in the evening that it would work well at. But, I was really set on wanting it and said to myself, hang on a second, who says I can’t wear it in the daytime!?

When it arrived I tried it on and it fit perfectly – I went for a size larger than I would normally wear because I didn’t want it to be super tight and short, especially as I was planning on wearing it in the day and loose fitting stuff always makes it look a little more casual.

As it’s autumn, layers are needed and I started rummaging through all my long sleeve polo tops and thought the grey from Asos would be such a greyt (great, geddit!?) contrast with the dusty rose pink of the silk dress.

I then thought about shoes and I knew black tights with this outfit would look terrible so naturally I kneeded (needed, geddit!?) over the knee boots. I have black but thought that was a little cliche and tried the burgundy boots from New Look which added just the right autumnal pop of colour.

That then sparked my make up choice so I went for the dolce vita palette by Charlotte Tilbury on my eyes which has some great burnt burgundy and light pink shades and used a mixture of Soar lipliner by Mac and Cannes liquid lipstick by Nyx for my lips. These shades complemented the boots brilliantly, without it being too matchy matchy.

I then kept to a simple black bag for my accessory so as not to introduce another colour.
