Boohoo: A Dress For Every Occasion*

May 19, 2018

*AD – gifted: this post contains products that were gifted to me in exchange for a review

First and foremost, if you’ve never been on Boohoo then where have you been? Boohoo is a clothing website that I’ve pretty much relied on for affordable fashion for years now. When they contacted me to work with them recently, I was absolutely over the moon. I was given the theme of occasion-wear – admittedly, this intimidated me at first because I basically live in leggings and baggy t-shirts but it gave me the perfect opportunity to step out of my comfort zone. I don’t very often get all dressed up but when I find the right outfit that I feel comfortable in, it feels pretty amazing.

Boohoo very kindly gifted me any dress of my choice from their occasion-wear section and I was a little bit spoiled for options. I always automatically reach for dark colours (the majority of my wardrobe is black and grey) but as I was making this all about stepping outside of my comfort zone, I opted for something brighter. When I came across this sparkly Boutique Ela Embellished Skater Dress I fell in love and I was praying that I could pull it off.

I knew I’d made the right decision as soon as I put the dress on. First of all, the fit is absolutely perfect on me. I often have problems trying to get my boobs to fit into things but I feel like this suits my body shape really well, flattering what I’ve got rather than hiding it like I tend to do. This dress is just the right amount of princess without going overboard and there are so many occasions I could wear it for. As the dress is nude as well, there are so many different options and colour palettes you could go for. I came up with a few of my own ideas to show just how versatile this dress can be.

This first look would be perfect for a special event such as a ball, prom, a wedding party – anything along those lines. I wanted to keep the jewelry and accessories really simple as the dress does all of the talking. I also really like the idea of a pop of colour using red lipstick and nail varnish to add a little extra something.

This look shows how versatile occasion-wear can be depending on how you choose to style it. This look would be great for a Summer evening or something like a garden party. I like the idea of keeping the make-up a lot more simple and natural-looking whilst throwing in a couple of Summery accessories with the flower ring and sunglasses.

Of course, I couldn’t completely abandon my dark side. For those of you who love to go a little bit darker and edgy when it comes to fashion, this look is for you. A smokey eye and dark purple lipstick along with darker accessories like the choker pictured help to vamp this look up and give it a whole different vibe.

Boohoo have so many different and versatile options in their occasion-wear section, click here to go and have a browse – I challenge you to visit the website and not end up with a basket full of stuff. Even if it’s not occasion-wear you’re looking for, Boohoo has so many different styles of clothing to choose from. There’s something for everyone, they include a good variety of clothing sizes and they’re extremely affordable. Some of my all-time favourite wardrobe pieces are from Boohoo and I’m forever recommending everyone to check the website out!

Which look is your favourite from the three I’ve created?

  1. Of course I’d love the darker styling the most but I’d definitely wear it all the ways you’ve put together as you’ve gotta rock that summery glow sometimes! You look like an ANGEL and the dress compliments your figure so, so well. It is so nice to see you embracing what you’ve got as what you’ve got is bloody fabulous and you look so confident and pretty in these photos. I feel like a proud mama, you gorgeous thing! Also without sounding like a total creeper, you’ve got a great pair of legs, embrace them girl.

    I would also go for the dark colors first, but I’m glad you didn’t cause you look great in this dress! I love the details on top and the cut – just my style.
    I can see it being very elegant with some heels for a wedding, or more fancy/casual with flats for a garden party or Christening or something like that. It’s versatile and you made the right choice!
