My fail safe items: Dresses

Everyone has a few key items in their wardrobe that they tend to wear again and again. I find that some of my dresses are most versatile and they stay in fashion for years to come. Here are my favourites

I bought this white lace dress from Topshop in 2009 and it's served me very well. From Wimbledon to Christmas drinks (above) it can be worn for almost any occasion and is transformed with tights, a belt and a jacket. I love the girly fabric and flattering shape and always feel comfortable in this dress.

This peasant style dress from New Look is another winner. I love how the fabric sits and the fact that it never needs ironing. (always a bonus) It can be worn in summer or winter and is a classic, feminine colour.

Excuse the dodgy pose in this pic but this leopard print warehouse dress has served me very well. It can be dressed up for a night out or dressed down with a blazer for work. I'm a massive fan of leopard print anyway but I think that this version looks glamorous and expensive compared to other prints that I've seen

This LBD from New Look takes on a different style every time I wear it. Here, I've teamed it with a white shirt to create the collar and a belt to cinch in my waist but it can be worn on it's own for a simple and stylish look or layered over a polo neck to make it more casual.

What are your fail safe items? Are you a sucker for dresses or do you prefer separates?


  1. I like your white lace dress with the leather jacket the most - it's that pretty meets tough kind of look. I adore dresses too although I probably wear separates more often as you can mix them up more. xx

  2. Thanks, that's my favourite too! That's true, there are more opportunities to create different looks with seperates. xx
