Dress for all Seasons
with New Look

Hi folks. I've got another collaboration with the lovely team at New Look for you today, featuring a fabulous shirt dress from their Inspire range! The idea behind this collaboration was for bloggers to show how they'd style a dress to move between seasons; being a lover of layers and dresses this is right up my street. Just a wee note, apologies for the photo quality; Autumn/Winter weather equals a lack of opportunity for outdoor photography, so I had to make the most of a plain wall amidst the chaos indoors.

I chose the Plus Size Navy Tie Waist Shirt Dress (PC: 350724541), which retails at £17.99 (New Look kindly gifted me the dress for this post) and also comes in khaki and black. I don't know why I thought it was a good idea to size up and got a 24 instead of a 22, bad idea; as you can see, I'm swamped and had to wear a vest top underneath for modesty! Honestly I think I could've even sized down as the waist is elasticated. The dress is available in sizes 18-28, by the way, and I'd say if you're a 30-32 still try a 28 :)

During the summer months this dress would be perfect to throw on just on it's own, or with tights. It's lightweight and comfortable. For the colder (current) months, I wore it with leggings and Wingz (find out more here). Thicker tights and a cardigan would also look really well, and you could also smarten it up with a blazer. It's really versatile.

Obviously, wear some shoes outside! I think this'd look great with pumps or court shoes (casual > dressy/workwear).

I'm looking forward to styling this dress a few different ways!
