Ironically enough, I always try to avoid wearing too much black nowadays. The reason being that black was all I used to wear back in my high school years, and eventually I got a little tired of it! Black dresses, black tops, black jeans, black skirts, black shoes… I was a goth as you could get (without actually being a self-confessed goth).
But black, despite not technically being a colour, has some great redeeming qualities – it’s sophisticated, it’s flattering, and it goes with literally anything. Add some white into the mix, and you’ve got yourself some monochrome – and monochrome is such a great combination.
What drew me to this dress is it’s beauty. It’s got a pretty floral design, coupled with a comfy, flowy fit that is very on-par with the gypsy tops that have creeped their way back into mainstream fashion. I paired it with a gorgeous big hairbow and delicate pearl jewellery. I chose my long black boots for the ultimate throwback style.
