Sometimes you just need colour, especially in the depths of winter, and today was one of those days. This red and light grey print jersey dress is by Star by Julien Macdonald at Debenhams. It came with a thin grey belt but the belt loops are too high for my long torso so I decided the dress looked better without it. It certainly feels more comfortable without the belt, but I may add a plain red one in the future. I have a wide faux leather one that should cover the belt loops, otherwise I may have to cut them off.
The thick grey tights and wedge platform ankle boots create a leg-lengthening effect. They also ensure the outfit is appropriate for the chilly weather. (I was wearing a coat, but I whipped it off quickly for the photo!). I’m sure I’ll get plenty of wear from this red and grey dress with sandals in the Summer months. I have some red wedge sandals that would be perfect with it. The red faux leather bag is by Juno, which I bought from TKMaxx.
