As the winter settles in, I am finding myself adjusting the one summer trend that I thought I would never like, into my winter wardrobe- the retro 60s and 70s trend! This trend took a long time to grow on me, but once I started playing around with it during the summer, I couldn’t stop!
From the peasant tops to gypsy prints, I embraced the trend full on during the summer, and now its slowly making its way into my winter wardrobe. Shades of maroon, bohemian prints and flowy dresses is what I’m all about this season, and although this is a rather new style venture for me, I think its here to stay!
I spotted this dress at Truworths when I was shopping there for an outfit, and it immediately caught my eye. I love the loose texture of it, so it’s nice and flowy without being restrictive, but it still has a nice shape to it with the brown leather belt. Truworths has recently come on board to dress, style and accessorize the talents in the latest South African production of “The Voice” which I myself have been rather enjoying(and secretly hoping I could be on, but alas singing is not my forte). I could definitely see one of the contestants rocking this dress during the Live Finale rounds with a pair of tan heels, can you?
For me, I bought this dress also in mind with the fact that I can wear it to work throughout winter with the help of black tights. That the thought that goes through my mind all the time when I am shopping lately- can I wear this to work? Although we are not at all expected to dress up every day, it’s something that I love to do because that’s how I am. I love the little lace-up detail around the chest area on this dress too, because I feel like it adds to the dresses charm. I paired the dress with loose waves, a red lip and at times a hat- because I love hats I wear them all the time, but I get the feeling that I might be overdoing it 😉
What do you think of this look? It’s a little new and different for me, but I am loving it! Tune into The Voice every Sunday to see some more fashion from Truworths!
