What do people say about your style? Are you usually dressed in black or are you the one in vibrant colors all the time. I am definitely the black clothes kinda girl but I have been making a conscious effort to add more color to my closet. Colors can brighten your mood and make you more approachable from what I have read. I have certainly noticed the difference color makes which is why I am rocking this Blue floral embroidery dress today.
This floral embroidery dress which I chose from Gozon, a clothing website that I am currently obsessed with comes in black and blue. I was very proud of myself for choosing the blue color which is pretty groundbreaking on my part. Blue tends to go well with dark and olive skin tones and I loved that it blended well with my skin. People who also look good in blue are brunettes however most people can rock this color.
One of my favorite things about this dress is floral embroidery detail. It almost reminds me of some beautiful African designs that we used see a lot back home. The fact that it is a bodycon dress and features off shoulder, a short sleeve and a left side slit makes it very flattering and perfect for a summer date night.
Speaking of the off shoulder look I am sure you have seen so many bare shoulders out there and wondering if this trend is still hot. Well it still is and because I loved the off shoulder style of this dress I figured I should share some tips on pulling this look off.
3 Tips to pulling off the off shoulder look.
- Invest in a good strapless bra: Yes, I know they are not the most comfortable bras to wear but they are absolutely necessary for an off shoulder dress or top. Straps showing on a off shoulder dress is a big no!
- Make sure the elastic is tight: If you are going to be very active or will be moving your hands a lot, then you definitely want to make sure the elastic is tight and will not let the sleeves fall completely off your shoulders. I have heard of horror stories where a girls off shoulder dress just completely slipped off.
- Keep it stylish: Off shoulder tops look great with high waisted pants and the dresses look great with flat summer scandals. If you are going for a more fitted style like the bodycon dress I have on then you want to pair it with some fab heels.
Still not sure about blue, check out my Royal Blue Jumpsuit post and tell me what you think. I would also love to know your thoughts on the off shoulder look, do you like it or despise it?
