What would your definition of a versatile dress be? For me, it is something that I want to have in my wardrobe because I will get lots of wear out of it, for lots of different occasions. It is a failsafe dress, one that doesn’t really need a lot of thought – you can just thrown it on. And, of course, it is super flattering and comfortable, a dress I feel good wearing. The ex White Stuff Mauve Mist printed summer dress from High Street Outlet is the latest versatile dress added to my wardrobe. It has already had three wears, all for different occasions, and I know it will emerge from my wardrobe time and time again before the Autumn comes.
The print of this dress is very eye-catching and super pretty, almost like something you would find on Wedgewood pottery, and the colour is a soft grey/blue which is very unusual for summer. The fabric is a silky feel viscose, one of the reasons why I think this dress suits a lot of different occasions, and is also fully lined, another great feature when you consider so many summer dresses are thin and see-thru. The dress has a gathered, elasticated waistband which gives the dress shape. And, of course, as I already mentioned, this dress is really versatile.
Why? Well, as I mentioned, I’ve already worn this dress 3 times in less than a month. I’ve worn it with flat shoes and a cardigan on a rather breezy school run. I’ve worn it with a denim jacket and sandals for the airport and traveling. I’ve worn it on my hols for a day out sightseeing. For each occasion it was cool, comfortable and perfect.
I think this dress would also be a great addition to your summer workwear uniform if you added a thin blazer and kitten heels, so yet another way to wear the ever versatile dress. High Street Outlet currently has a great range of dresses that can suit all your summer needs (you can check out the current intake here, and remember new lines are being added every week, so bookmark the site.)
