#TRENDTOCLASSIC 1: ROMANTIC FLORAL DRESSES FOR YOUR SHAPE

If you read my post last night all about floral dresses and my first #trendtoclassic outfit you’ll know I promised to help you find a Romantic floral dress for your body shape. If you don’t know your body shape yet then click HERE to find out before shopping your perfect Romantic floral print dress.

I’ve decided to feature dresses that aren’t necessarily occasion or super casual either, a Romantic black rose floral dress that you can dress up or down to make as many outfits as possible, for many seasons of the year and doesn’t cost you the earth.

Below I have included floral dresses in the shops that you can buy right now to suit ALL body shapes.

Before investing in your floral print dress, here are my top styling tips to make the most of your dress….



DAY WEAR 

Wear your dress with ankle boots, small block heel sandals or some beautiful pink velvet slip ons/flats. In winter wear tights with your ankle boots. In summer wear some pretty nude pink or black flat sandals.

Add a blazer or cardigan, black or blush pink depending on your colour palette. You can do this with a scarf in the winter too. A big chunky cardigan will look amazing in the winter with your dress and tights/ankle boots.

In summer you could add a vintage denim jacket, flat sandals/wedges, a floppy/straw hat and a rose pink handbag/Rucksack bag. And your best shades of course.

Keep accessories simple and avoid too much sparkle for day wear. Studs or jewellery with little floral detail would look cute. A simple necklace and studs with a watch will look very chic.

EVENING WEAR 

When it comes to taking your dress into to the evening think luxe textures and details.

Velvet, lace, sparkle, pearls and heels will be a winning combo.

Add court shoes, sandals or shoe boots, a clutch or chain bag, statement ring and earrings with small diamond or pearl details. Silver or rose gold will look better with these dresses rather than gold.

Smokey eyes, fluttering lashes and nude peach or pink lips with waves or barrel curls.

Blazer’s will look super chic with your dress for an evening cover up or a wrap/waterfall coat.

In Winter add black tights, a smart coat with fur or velvet collar detail and court shoes or long black over or under the knee suede boots.

THE DRESS THAT SUITS ALL SHAPES

The wrap dress is world famous for being the most flattering dress all around for all body shapes. Diane Von Furstenberg made her designer name famous from her iconic wrap dresses. Hands down one of the best dress investments you’ll ever make.

This dress really will suit all shapes, I only advise that rectangle and oval shapes should tie the middle wrap ties to the back instead of the front.

I would also roll the sleeves up towards your elbows to draw the eye towards your waist unless you’re an Inverted triangle shape as the long sleeves will draw the eye towards the hips.


THE HOURGLASS

Black rose print dress, Nine by Savannah Miller now £36  /   Floral wrap dress, Boden £23-53.70  /  Floral print tie wrap, Yumi now £38

The aim of the hourglass dress is to emphasis the waist and nothing is more flattering on an hourglass than a belt, tie or wrap waist dress.


THE PEAR/TRIANGLE SHAPE

 Black floral print midi dress, Nine by Savannah Miller now £30   /  Floral shirred bardot dress, Topshop £42  /    Floral wrap dress, Boden £23-53.70

The aim of the Pear shape dresses is to add volume to the shoulders with the shape, ruffles and off the shoulder details. Clinch in the waist and a skirted bottom that flows over the hips rather than clinging to your thighs.


INVERTED TRIANGLE

Long sleeve floral skater dress, Lipsy £45  /  Floral wrap dress, Boden £23-53.70  /  Halterneck floral skater dress, ASOS Now £18

The aim of the inverted triangle dresses is to add volume to the lower part of the body and give the illusion of a waist. V neck and hater necklines are perfect with a skater style skirt. The long sleeve with the ruffle wrist will also add volume and draw the eye towards the hip area.


THE RECTANGLE SHAPE

Madison floral skater dress, Oasis £38.40  /  Black floral print midi dress, Nine by Savannah Miller now £30  /  Black rose ruffle print dress, Nine by Savannah Miller now £30

The aim of the Rectangle shape dresses is to soften your straight shape with volume at the shoulders and hips and creating illusions of a clinched in waist.


THE ROUND/APPLE SHAPE

Black floral drop waist wrap dress, Nine by Savannah Miller now £30  /  Floral print drop hem dress, Ganni £115  /  Long sleeve floral dress, Dorothy Perkins now £28

The aim of the Apple shaped dresses are to draw the eye above or below the tummy area with empire lines or drop hem lines.
