The Curvy Smart Casual

Smart-Casual is the enigma of dress codes. Sure, guys can throw on a pair of good jeans with a shirt and they’re good to go. But when it comes to gals, things get a little more complex. Are heels and a dress too much? Will I be under-dressed in jeans? *calls all friends to see what they’re wearing and turns entire wardrobe into a floordrobe*. The ‘I have nothing to wear’ dilemma seems to creep up all too often when smart-cas is involved…

Insert the most spectacular and absolute bargain of a dress. Just like lots of online clothes stores, I find Boohoo switches between uh-mazing and blooming awful quality and I had my reservations about this dress. I mean, come on, £25 for a floor length dress with all the embroidery detail and a slip? But when it turned up I was more than impressed and proceeded to twirl around my living room in it like the sass queen I am.

But it’s hardly smart-cas I hear you cry (and by cry I mean possible consider for a sec before going back to lust over how gorgeous this li’l thang is). Well gals, it’s time to grab your trusty Stan Smiths/Huaraches/Whatever trainers the cool kids are wearing these days and go bold. You’ll be feeling chill AF and you can dance allllllll night.

And if anyone asks why you’re wearing a flooring length dress with trainers? Tell them it’s fashion darling and sashay away!

A faux-ginger, gin drinking, digital marketing gal with a thing for food styling. That was basically my old Tinder bio... Living in Leeds, I'm forever heading out for dinner, buying too many clothes, spending 50% of my money on ubers and, as of now, putting my stamp on my new apartment!
