Hello everyone! Recently I was contacted by Aviva Dress, a company specialising in occasion dresses. They stock a huge range of wedding and prom dresses, as well as lot of more versatile formalwear. As someone who loves to dress up, browsing their site was a lot of fun. I never get the chance to wear occasion dresses like these, and so I decided to pick out three of my favourite long dresses from their site to share with you. They have a huge sale on at the moment with some great discounts, so I'd recommend checking them out if you do have a formal event coming up and you don't want to pay the earth for a nice dress.
This dress really stood out to me when I was browsing the site. I absolutely love the unique grid detailing on the bust and the shoulders, and I really like the way it's been styled here with a simple pink lip and up do. This cream/nude colour isn't something I'd usually choose (I'm pretty much always wearing black), but I think it looks so demure (exactly how I'd describe myself...) and understated here and it's definitely opened my eyes to trying new things. This dress is perfect if you want to stand out in a sophisticated and chic way. Sometimes going for something understated like this makes more of a statement than sporting a huge neon princess dress!
The thing I really love about this dress is the neckline. I'm a sucker for a high neckline and I love how this one works with the sheer panel. It makes what could have been a simple strapless dress that bit more interesting and chic. Being a bright red dress, this is definitely a piece that makes a huge statement as soon as you walk into the room and will certainly turn heads (in a good way.) I've never worn a red dress before but I'm having visions of me strutting (tripping) into a fancy event wearing this. Once again they've got the styling here totally right, I think this would look great with a volumnious hair style and natural make up.
Sheath/Column Scoop Sweep/Brush Train Black Chiffon Long Elegant Evening/Prom Dress -
It wouldn't be a blog post by me if it didn't feature a black dress! If you've seen my recent trend post, you'll know I'm loving black pieces with embellishments at the moment, and so I couldn't leave this piece out. It's such a chic dress that I think is definitely the most versatile of the ones I've chosen. The shoulder detailing is just insane! I also love the keyhole detail at the back. You could style this in a variety of ways, too. I'd probably go for a vampy lip and a similar hair style to the one in this picture.
Have you got any occasions coming up?
