Layer That Dress!

Before Crimbo I was sent this beauty of a dress by Lavish Alice from Bank Fashion but haven’t had a chance to wear it yet.  It’s a figure hugging pencil dress with long sleeves which looks very ‘workwear-ish’ when you see it alone, so I had a think about how I could turn it into EJ.Style and ta dahhhh, here we go!  Layers my friends, layers!  As it is a tad on the nippy side at the moment layers were the way to go when creating this look.  I used a denim shirt which I’ve had for yonks (Zara) and tied it at the waist, leaving it open to expose the gorgeous check print of the dress, with a leather jacket casually thrown on the shoulders.  I’ve added a clashing chunky statement necklace (Topshop), a pair of black heels ankle boots and my bag of the moment, the Zara mini city in grey.  I like this look so much that I’m thinking of recreating something similar with a pencil dress for Fashion Week in Feb, weather permitting obvs!

    Love it! Denim shirts can often save a work-ish look I think! Like the Zara bag as well.

    I really loved the dress, it is simply perfect, and the shipping time was also superfast. Wow i am very impressed with the designer! My sister got engaged and getting married all within 45 days!
