FRIDAY STYLE: STYLING UP A CHEAP AND PLAIN TESCO DRESS

?????????????????????? ?????????????????????? ??????????????????????

I bought this plain navy dress in Tesco a while back, but I’ve seen loads of similar dresses in other equally inexpensive shops. Other than the tulip style skirt, it is fairly plain but that’s the fun of it; You can dress it up or down depending on your accessories. It is essentially a little black dress, only it’s navy. I find navy can be a less harsh alternative to black for the fair Irish skin tone.

For today I have accessorised this dress with some (surprise, surprise) mint green, or aqua if you want, accents. The necklace you have seen recently in this post, when I paired it with plum. You see, I’m not boring and predictable, mint green happens to be really versatile.

The cardigan is from Dorothy Perkins, the colour ties in nicely and it’s handy to have some sort of cover up in this changeable weather.
This cute little belt is from Penneys. A simple way to define the waist and make it appear smaller is to pop a cute little skinny belt on.

And now for the stars of the show, the shoes!!

These little cuties are from the brand Poetic Licence and I bought them in the boutique Ruby Rouge in Gorey.

The colour, the pink and white polka dots, the itty bitty polka dots on the straps, and the little sparkly apple buttons, there is so much to love about these. Not to mention that they are actually comfortable. The heel is high enough to be dressy but not ankle breaking high: so perfect for day time or a night out.

How do you style up a plain dress?

  1. The shoes are gorgeous, my perfect height in a shoe! I adore your necklace, and I love the way you styled it – I always seem to think of red or yellow with navy, but the mint is really fresh and pretty.

  2. Beautiful Tracey! A lesson in great accessorising. And I agree re the shoes, they are adorable.
    I’ve always thought that black and dark blue should should be avoided, but you have managed to make the black tights really work here. Have you any tips on this colour combination?
