I used to love summer fashion. From floaty florals to pretty pastels, I just adored the styles and colours. However, that was before I became a mother, and my figure changed. Since then I’ve fully embraced winter and autumn fashion. Skinny jeans and baggy sweatshirts have become my friends. But then www.fashionworld.co.uk contacted me and asked if I would try some of the summer fashion essentials from their website.
I decided that this was my opportunity to find some summer fashion essentials that suit the new me. The me that is curvier and has more lumps and bumps. And the me who goes on play dates rather than nights out and who works from her dining room table rather than from a desk in a busy office. My life may have changed since becoming a mum but I still want to look good. I still want to embrace current styles and feel fashionable. And thanks to Fashion World, I have finally discovered a few summer fashion essentials that have reignited my love for summer fashion and suit my new mum life perfectly.
Summer Fashion Essentials From Fashion World
Summer Fashion Essential No. 1 – The Smock Dress
I’ve lusted after a smock dress for a while. However, I’ve always worried that they wouldn’t suit me. I thought that the shape might make me look frumpy. But then I saw this gorgeous Mirror Trim Smock Dress from Simply Be on Fashion World and I knew that I had to have it in my life.
And oh, I love this dress. I love everything about this dress. From the on-trend mirror trim, embroidery and tassels to the delicate blue stripe. It’s also the most comfortable dress that I’ve ever worn and I could happily wear it every day.
This dress fits brilliantly. It isn’t tight and skims over all my lumps and bumps. And it is the perfect length. It shows off my legs (one of my favourite parts of my body) without being too short for a nearly 40-year-old.
Thanks to Fashion World and their amazing choice of summer fashion essentials I am now a smock dress convert. And from now on, I might just buy all the smock dresses.
Summer Fashion Essential No. 2 – The Floral Maxi Dress
As soon as I saw this Tropical Floral Shirt Dress from Joe Browns on the Fashion World I fell in love with the stunning tropical print. The floral pattern really is gorgeous and includes many of my favourite colours – coral, mustard yellow and pink.
The shirt dress style is perfect for my curvier figure and the belt gives me some definition at the waist. I’ve had so many compliments when wearing this dress. Even from a personal stylist. And wearing this floral maxi makes me feel confident.
This summer fashion essential can also be dressed up or down. Team it with a pair of pumps or espadrilles, a denim jacket and sunglasses for a relaxed look. Or a bright coral lip and some wedge heels for a more dressed-up style.
Summer Fashion Essential No. 3 – The Maxi Skirt
The maxi skirt is my final summer fashion essential. It’s such a versatile item of clothing. And there is a huge choice of styles. I chose this Button Front Gathered Maxi Skirt from Fashion World, which I’ve teamed with the ubiquitous slogan t-shirt.
The high waist, button front and the gathered section of this maxi skirt make it very flattering. The light fabric makes it the ideal fashion choice for the heat wave that is predicted. And it can be styled with a slogan t-shirt, vest top or you can even try out another summer fashion essential – the Bardot top.
So there you have it, my three summer fashion essentials from the Fashion World website. What is the one item of summer fashion that you can’t manage without?
