Perhaps I’m not the only one, but when a dress comes with a price tag of R800 and higher, it has to do more than look good for one single occasion. To me, a dress in this price range is considered an investment and has to be restyleable from January through to December.
I recently came across this flounced polka dot dress from H&M, which ticks all the winter trend boxes and is versatile enough to move with you through the upcoming seasons.
Thankfully, the famous oversized polka dots are a fail safe option for every event too. Here are a few tricks to make this or any other dress look brand new, every time from this mid July.
Play with prints
This combination is for those who are bold and daring and who know that these two reigning prints, polka dots and checks are always better together. Add a pair of thigh high metallic boots to the mix and you’ll stand out for all the right reasons.
Make it a pink thing
Keep it cosy and super comfortable in bursts of candy. Simply get your hands on a luxe puffer jacket and a pair of pale pink sneakers for the ultimate in polka dot and pink perfection.
Layer it up and keep it chic in monochrome
With easy fitting ¾ bell sleeves, layering a neutral polo neck knit underneath the dress is but a breeze. This effortless layering makes this frock or one like it the perfect choice for cold snaps in July and the cool spring days ahead. Match it all to a pearl detailed beret.
