I’ve never really been a fan of the colour burgundy but this year I am really attracted to it like a magpie. I think it’s the warming feeling of such a deep, rich colour that seems to always look luxurious regardless of how much you’ve spent on your outfit. The Garden Floral Lace Skater Dress was only £14 so a complete bargain and after looking on their website, it is in the Winter sale for £10 (however only in sizes 6, 10 and 12). It’s got a bit of stretch to it, with a beautiful lace overlay which is sheer across the top. An underskirt provides a bit of modesty, however the dress is quite short, and I’m only 5’5″.
As for styling this dress, I opted for a simply burgundy cardigan from Primark which cost £6 and wide fit brown knee high boots, also from Primark. These are current stock and are £20 and also come in black which I am sorely tempted to get too. I’ve always struggled with finding knee high boots as my calf muscles are huge, yet my ankles are skinny. Go figure!? For accessories, I split a set of bracelets from New Look and chose golden and deep red tones to match my dress. I have to say I really love this look and it’s one that I’ve been rocking plenty of times recently. What do you think of this seasons on-trend colours? Are you wearing them? I’d love to know!
