Very's £50 Challenge

Before Christmas, Very got in touch asking me to pick something from the website, up to £50, that would be a staple for me over the Christmas period.

I decided on this gorgeous A-line cut out dress from the Love Label Range and it really is perfect for either dressing up or dressing down.

It's such a lovely blue colour, paired with the cut out detailing along the neckline guarantee that it'll make a statement when you're out and about. The fitting is also amazing. It's nice and floaty and looks great on.

I've managed to style it two ways so far:

I slightly glammed it up for my first look, with some red accessories. My red heels are Steve Madden and my belt is Max C. I thought it's be nice to match my accessories and really cinch my waist with a wide belt. A perfect outfit for a party!

My second look was a lot more casual, and one that could easily be worn while shopping over the summer. I switched the heels for a pair of floral flats (Accessorize) and added my trusted Fedora (Camden) to make it even more cool. I love this hat more and more every time I wear it.


What do you think of the dress? How would you wear it?

P.S. Don't worry, I haven't gone crazy: I am actally wearing tights here (Debenhams).

I like both ways you've styled it, but prefer the more glam one of course! :)

I prefer the more glam look, too but adore the ballet flats in the casual outfit! Cute!

I love this dress, the colour is beautiful and it looks great styled both ways. The colour contrast with the red belt looks amazing! x

Great styling on both pics!
My favourite is the second one I think, the hat adds edge and it looks very cool.


Silvertigo said...

Great looks, both of them :) I would probably wear that with a cropped leather jacket and lots of bangles, that would look fun, too :) That Fedora is awesome, I would love a great hat like that! Better keep on searching ;) xoxo

This is a gorgeous colour on you Sherin, it looks fab!
I know that I'd wear it with black opaque tights and suede, heeled boots for evening and switch the boots for brogues in the daytime. I think it calls for an arm party too.

Love the color. I like what Hazel suggested. I was gonna say I would style it with black tights and boot too! :)

I adore this dress. It is a beautiful colour and I imagine there are many potential ways to style this dress. I think the red accessories are perfect for it, that's how I would style it too.
