I had an email land in my inbox (personal email account) from Hobbs and I could resist sharing. I will say from now I was overcome with excitement at some of the new styles of dresses that I saw. I have an obsession with dresses as some of you may have realised. I don’t know where it stems from but I would live in them if I could. Maybe it’s because you can get so many different yet beautiful styles that look so feminine. Dresses can suit just about anyone no matter what size you are. I normally limit myself in relation to dress colour going for white or black, but mainly black but so many different coloured dresses seemed to call to me this year when I was on the site that I couldn’t resist including them.
From top left going clockwise is the fabulously feminine Ella dress in sand. Isn’t it lovely, that colour looks great and the actual style of the dress is perfect to flatter the female form. It’s a good length for day wear as you aren’t likely to flash the neighbour or passing traffic when you bend over to get the kiddies into the car. (The least said about that story the better). This dress can be jazzed up with a range of bright and bold or simple yet sparkly accessories, the choice is yours.
The White Gardenia maxi dress is beautiful with it’s butterfly design and flows nicely as you walk. A great light dress for the warm weather and as it’s white it reflects the light helping you feel that bit cooler. I love maxi dresses the are always a winner with me as I love to keep a range in my wardrobe to cover every occasion.
Plain white dresses will always be in and look fantastic on those brave enough to wear them. Again falling just below the knee it is an ideal length and the waist tie can be used to create a wrap effect. Alternatively you can tied it at the front or back for a more relaxed style. This dress is also available in warm burnt orange as shown below it is just as lovely as the white and it really is eye catching. Both dresses are perfect for day wear in the Spring and Summer provided the weather is warm enough. They can also make great evening wear at a casual function with the addition of a cardigan.
The blue Kathy Twitchhill dress is simply stunning and you can get away with wearing it in the day as well in the evening. It is a great design and the lower part floats well as you walk. Made from soft cotton this will help keep you feeling cool and looking stylish and sophisticated.
How pretty is the final dress with the black base and white polka dot combination. A dress that will always be in fashion and also look great anytime of day. I love the sheen of the dress and this works well with a range of cardigan colours and of course a little sparkly jewellery a fabulous handbag and some gorgeous shoes.
