River Island double layered dress

When I wore this outfit, I felt a bit ‘plain’ at first and wasn’t sure whether to feature it on the blog. I like simple outfits but was this outfit too simple? There were no patterns, no prints, no textures and the colour palette was quite basic. After all, it was a just a wine colored dress with black tights and grey boots. Nothing particularly ground breaking.

However after seeing the photos, I decided to feature the outfit anyway purely because I appreciate the simplicity of it. The River Island double layered dress is really flattering on and looks effortlessly smart. I love dresses with long sleeves in the autumn because they’re an easy way to feel ‘pulled together’. Plus, I don’t have to worry about feeling cold. A black jacket or coat would be more than appropriate.

I also love the dress because it’s a versatile style which suits a variety of purposes. I’ve worn it to the office with a pair of brogues and a blazer and at the weekend with a leather jacket and boots. It would probably look great for a night out with a pair of heels too.

I’ve teamed it with tights here for extra warmth but it also looks good with bare legs and a slick of tan. Just because summer is over doesn’t mean that you can’t work a healthy glow! I like to have a light tan all year round – I look tired and ill without a bit of golden colour. Does anyone else feel the same? Thank goodness for fake tan!

So although it’s a ‘plain’ outfit, it’s good to go for minimalism sometimes. There’s nothing worse than constantly looking try-hard! I’m looking forward to wearing this combo again.

What do you think of this look? Yay or nay? Let me know!
