It's not often I go for simple, classic numbers. When it comes to clothes, I prefer a splash of colour. Or even a whole palette-load of colour - and why ever not?
But when the folk from Great Plains' online store got in touch to offer an item of my choice from the brand's virtual rails, I was instantly drawn to this cute black A-line dress, pictured below. And I managed to bag it just before it disappeared off the site, too (it was in the clearance section).
As far as versatility goes, the black 'flock dress' gets a huge thumbs up from me. It works as well with a simple cardigan and ankle boots in the day as it does dressed up (as below) with a pair of great heels. What do you think?
It doesn't cling to any lumps and bumps and it's one of those 'day-to-night' dresses the magazines are so keen on. You know, wear it to the office with that aforementioned cardi, before whipping off your cosy knit and swapping your ballet flats for some sky high heels. Simples. On a recent night out, I paired the dress with asheer polka dot blouse.
How would you style this black dress? And would you dress it up or down?
Next on my Great Plains wishlist? This pretty floral number. I told you I don't always do classic and simple.
Let me know, is your wardrobe made up of neutral shades or do you enjoy a flash of colour every now and then?
Don't forget to check out Great Plains' collection of clobber - there's some really lovely winter coats, as well as a great line of cosy knits and some gorgeous work wear bits.
