Ways to Wear a Skater Dress 1

Eeep! Haven't blogged for a few days, it wasn't intentional - things just got busy! Anyway, here is that Topshop fit and flare dress which I showed in my last post and how I would personally style it. It's hugely versatile!
 Dress: Topshop | Shirt: DIY | Tights: Primark | Shoes: Primark | Rings: H&M | Nails: Deborah Lippmann 'Razzle Dazzle'

My first look I would probably label as 'fashionable work attire', it's relatively smart yet edgy at the same time. Alternatively (if your work uniform is more strict!) you could wear a plain white shirt and some more demure jewellery. It would also work well for school, I was actually tempted to put some knee high socks on instead of the tights! 

Moving onto the second outfit...
Dress: As before | Skirt: Primark | Cardigan: Marks and Spencer | Earrings: Topshop Sale | Hand harness: Asos | Ring: Primark

This is the dress worn as a top. I often forget that you can put a skirt over a dress, it works nicely as it bulks the skirt out even more. As far as the outfit goes, it's not that exciting so I tried to jazz it up with a few quirky accessories. I picked up the evil eye earrings in the Topshop sale before Christmas for a mere £1.50, I like them because they're a bit more subtle than some of the other evil eye things I've seen recently. I've had this hand harness for almost a year now, I think! I don't wear it much because it's so delicate and I'm scared I'll break it, nevertheless, it's still pretty. 

I'd probably wear this outfit for school/shopping/going for lunch, it's not super dressy but it's not lazy either, if you get me! I wore the same shoes as before, although any pair would work really. 

So, there's part 1 over! I hope you enjoyed it, this is definitely one of the more time consuming posts I've done! What do you think?

    1. Aw, thank you! You should give it a go, it was really simple but it does look pretty effective if I do say so myself!

  3. I have that Topshop dress in red and indigo but I want it in black too.
    I was thinking of wearing it to work but worried it was too short but I think its ok with thick tights. I am only 5ft 2 so it should be ok to wear and I love how you wore it with the sheer blouse.

    1. I recommend the Primark super cosy tights, they're like leggings with feet and they're so fleecey and warm too :) I'm 5ft 8 and I don't find it horrifically short so it should be fine on you!

  6. Love the DIY shirt! That's amazing with the studs around the cuffs too.

    I've just noticed they sell the croc polish online at love fashion for £3.99 and do free delivery :) If you can't find it in store anywhere xx

    1. Ooo, thanks for that! I'll try town one more time as I like seeing the offers they normally have on Barry M, but if not then I might make a cheeky order :)
