Today was windy. Very windy. Skater dresses and long hair don't work well with wind, but I tried...
Anyway, it's a rare occasion that you will see me in neon pink, but I have to say I have fallen in love with this pretty skater dress from ASOS! I think the cream really breaks up the brightness of the pink, so I can get away with wearing this without looking like barbie. The style of this dress is really flattering, the clinched in waist and the cut out at the back adds a little "oomph" and depth to this dress. I personally love the three quarter sleeves too, its much nicer than having your whole arms on show sometimes. I wanted to style this dress a little less conservatively than you would usually associate a prom dress with, and its so simple with a little accessorizing!
The gold belt, I thought, breaks up the dress and adds a little more of a tough, rock chick edge to an otherwise girly dress. Adding a necklace or two also works great in doing this. Don't be afraid to layer your necklace's, just make sure you get the contrast right. If you are stuck with this and don't want to look all 'little girl gone wild in Claire's Accessories', check out this perfect little guide to layering necklace's on the gorgeous Olivia Palermo's website here.
Sometimes a statement jacket can finish off an outfit, but that doesn't mean the rest has to be dull! Throw on a statement jacket over a statement dress and you can still work it! Just tone down your accessories, like I have with my nude heels from the Rihanna for River Island collection. I am never afraid to mix lots of colours and patterns, so I went with this simple Whistles lime colour bag to complimented the colour of the dress and the jacket. And last but not least, matching nails, of course; a girls easiest accessory.
What do you guys think of my take on a girly prom dress? I'd love to hear your opinions :).
