Scarlett and Jo – so beautiful for Spring

My love for the beautiful clothes of Scarlett and Jo knows no bounds. Every season I literally fall in love with the majority of their range because each collection appeals to all I love in fashion, a vintage feel, gorgeous prints and fabrics, sleeves and designs that just enhance womanly curves. I cannot get enough of the brand and this season is no different – how I would love a supermarket sweep through their stockroom!

This season has all the usual elements of recent fashion history. There are maxi dresses, some which have the feel of something from 1930s movies, giving the impression of those bias cut gowns through frills, ruffles and stretchy fabrics that just skim and hug those curves. There are tea- dresses with 1940s era fan prints, and draped necklines that also bring to mind stars like Joan Crawford and Bette Davies in her heyday. The 1950s are represented with prom style – glamorous frocks of lace and mesh fabric, with cinched in waists and full skirts. The whole collection is just gorgeous, another triumph for a label that goes from strength to strength.

The Navy Angel Sleeved Dress

The lovely people at Scarlett and Jo, knowing how much of a fan I am of their beautiful dresses, recently sent me the stunning Angel sleeved dress in navy to review. This dress is also available in black, pink and teal, but I’ve been having a bit of a navy moment at present, so this was the perfect choice for me.

I loved this dress on sight. I think it would be hard to find a more romantic, poetic style. This dress has sheer angel flounced sleeves and an empire style tie on the waist, with the rest of the skirt being very loose and flowing. The skirt is knee length and has a sort of artist smock appeal – it reminds me of something that Kate Bush or Stevie Nicks would’ve worn in their late 1970s heyday. The V neckline is surprisingly deep and sexy, but you could easily add a camisole underneath it if you felt it was too deep for you, and I love the fact that the skirt is double layered, so even though it is light and flowing, it is not too revealing.

I added goldtone jewellery to my look as I think gold and navy are a great combination, along with an ancient pair of New Look patent navy court shoes with a bow on the front which I happen to love.  On a cold day, this would work well with a classic beige mackintosh, or a Chanel style jacket which is what I added as the wind blew an absolute gale (check out the skirt and the hair in the shots…Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore…)

  1. I love the Scarlett and Jo Black Mesh Insert Dress, it look so pretty and of course you look fabulous on your dress and the goldtone necklace really did match the colour of your dress. xx
    Thank you for commenting on my blog too. xx

    • The mesh dress is just stunning. I love this in navy too, but am also tempted by the green…

  3. Thank you for the flattery. and once again Emma you have been got it spot on. Screen goddesses have been much influence and in using innovative 21st century fabrics and some tailoring skills has enabled us to scuplt this collection to create an hour glass silhouette. The Georgette Kimono sleeve tea dress that you model is a favourite. For me it’s the ultimate day into evening dress. Doesn’t need shape wear. The crepe jersey maxi does but it’s a wow, as is the fishtail inspired and designed for 5 foot 3 GG originally in blue to fully bring out her red hair. Thank you so much for informing.

  4. Wow lovely dresses! I would never think to look in Evans but I think I probably fit into their stuff at the moment! Thanks for sharing.
