Denim Shift Dress


Denim Shift Dress

As I’m typing this it’s raining outside – yep, it’s August and it’s raining!!

Luckily, last week we had beautiful weather – the sun was shining, it was warm and absolutely beautiful!! I got the chance to wear this lovely denim shift dress from and took a few photos too! 🙂

What I love about this Denim Shift Dress is the fact it’s fitted, yet comfortable and the cut-out side detail just adds a beautiful touch to the whole look!

Teaming this up with layered necklaces, I went for a more relaxed boho vibe – adding bracelets, bangles and a few rings too!

It’s the perfect summer outfit for when you’re exploring a new city – stylish, cute and yes – comfortable!

You can see more photos below and don’t forget the Style Squad Quiz – I’ve listed everything below so scroll down to see more details about getting involved! 🙂

Denim Shift Dress – Style Squad & Categories

By answering a few questions in the quiz, you’ll then be told which category your style is allowing you to shop the perfect outfits! 🙂

Glam – This glam squad is all about Instagram, Snapchat and filters, filters and yes, you guessed it – more filters! Summer is their favourite season allowing them to show-off their clutch bags, evening / occasion-wear and high heels!

Urban – Classic with a twist! Iconic staples like jeans, crop tops and statement lipsticks, what’s not to love!? Who said double denim was just for Britney and Justin?

Boho – Summery, romantic and pretty – think white lace dresses, floaty fabrics, flared detailing, jumpsuits, playsuits, beach dresses and maxi dresses – natural and elegant.

Sophisticated – Hello to these girlbosses! Independent women who know what they like and wear everything with confidence. Not afraid to try something new like midi-dresses, on-trend culottes, matching co-ordinating outfits and yes – killer heels!

Girly – Pretty, pretty and pretty! On point, off-the-shoulder dresses, fab florals and lovely bikini’s for your holidays. From beach to bar – these girls find a way to dress-up no matter the weather!

    Love this shift dress! Looks lovely on you! 🙂
    I’ve just done the quiz, however I disagree slightly with the outcome being ‘Urban’. :/ My ‘style’ generally depends in the purpose.. But even so, I’ll always be comfy. 🙂
