I never used to like strapless clothes. When I was 7 stone and a size 6, I felt like my collar bone stuck out dreadfully and I was really self conscious of this. Despite putting on weight, this body hang up stuck with me. Having put on such a lot of weight and then loosing most of it, I’m now in a much better place with my body confidence. So when I spotted this navy floral skater dress from New Look, I fell in love.
The straps on this navy floral skater dress are detachable. If I’m honest, when I bought it I didn’t expect to wear it as a strapless dress. But actually, both times I’ve worn this dress have been without the straps.
I love skater style dresses. It’s a really flattering style for my figure, particularly as my hips have always been one of the larger parts of my body. I say this, but since my medication weight loss I’ve accepted my thighs and am actually quite happy with them. I’d never felt comfortable in the shorts featured in my JORD Watch post before my weight loss, even when I was slimmer than I am now! As well as being flattering on my hips, the style of my navy floral skater dress is flattering for those who have a less-than-flat stomach.
I’ve paired my navy floral skater dress with a pink biker jacket, also from New Look. I was getting so much wear out of my black faux leather jacket that I thought the investment in a coloured option was worth it. I love how the pink brings out the colours in the floral pattern.
To compliment my navy floral skater dress, I picked a simple necklace. This was so as not to create too much of a contrast with the patterned of the dress. Here, I’ve opted for the Sterling Silver Infinity Necklace from Jewellery Box, which costs £9.65.
And this is yet another outfit post featuring my New Look wedges and Next bag. I just love the colour of them for summer!
This navy floral skater dress from New Look costs £24.99. The jacket was £39.99, but I got it for £32. Unfortunately neither are available online, so I’ve not been able to link to them.
