Our embroidered hi-lo hem dress – How will you wear yours?
Saturday, 14 September 2019 | Kate
Our gorgeous embroidered hi-lo hem dress comes in purple, teal, black, green and red. Like most of our alternative clothing it's really versatile and can be worn in all sorts of different ways.
The dress – Lacy, fresh and flattering
It's frilly. It's stretchy. It's light and lacy, and available in a series of lush jewel-like colours. When you're searching for a stunning dress, something fitted and flattering without being the least bit tarty, this one's perfect. It's covered in subtle embroidered detail in toning thread. The sides lace up for comfort and an excellent fit whatever you wear underneath. And, being a dress, it can also be worn as a tunic or a top, over leggings or jeans or even harems. You can layer it, add jewellery to it, wear a big, baggy jumper over the top of it, make it a cosy winter special... the world is your oyster.
We love the hi-lo hem, so stylish, and the gentle V neck is really pretty, edged with subtle embroidery too. This is how one of our customers wears hers. How will you wear yours?
The look – Worn with trousers and a smart jacket
In our world you can mix and match different patterns and colour schemes with confidence. Here's what happened when Kate decided to wear her dress with trousers and a jacket:
- Checked men's trousers with pockets, rolled up to ankle length
- A contrasting checked box jacket with a brooch on the collar
- Golden snakeskin-print flip-flops from Birkenstock
- A mustard yellow three layered bead necklace
The look – Lovely layering for warmth through spring and autumn
If you want to wear it all year round, you'll need layers. How about this?
- A burgundy long-sleeve T from Primark
- A long woollen cardi from Monsoon
- Black tights with pale pink hearts
- A 1980s vintage tapesty pencil skirt
- Rose red Harley Davidson biker boots
- An orange and pink velvet scarf – a brilliant charity shop find
The look – A fab summer party dress with heels and jewels
There's no law saying you can't wear a dress over a skirt. And that's what Kate has done here, adding a flowery circle skirt underneath. Summer parties mean bare legs, pretty shoes and jewellery. There's no need to layer when the weather's lovely and warm!
- Pink high heeled shoes from Alternative Choice in Brighton
- A circle skirt with a dark background and colourful printed flowers
- A burgundy beaded shrug from a charity shop
- A smoky quartz necklace
