I bought a neon yellow dress in the Cos sale just after Christmas, then decided to save it ’til Fashion Week where I wore it with black leather, a statement necklace and heeled boots.
Since then, I’ve been itching to wear it again, and now the sun’s shining it seems like the perfect time to pull it on. But, Fashion Week styling doesn’t really work for the everyday. What to do?
To give my dress a fashion makeunder, I wore it with dark brown accessories – no bling, no heels, no leather. The belt is probably the flashiest part of this outfit – it’s lizard skin, which creeps me out a little, but was just 50p at a recent jumble sale and is a genuine vintage piece, so that helps. The necklace is another second hand find – delicate jewellery is not really my thing so I love the chunkiness.
It probably wasn’t the best outfit to wear for a meal at Meat Liquor (although much better with the belt loosened a couple of notches), but the pop of colour really cheered up a dull day and paired with neutral accessories, I think this could become my go-to summer dress.
How would you make this dress more ‘real life’ appropriate?
