The Silk Number // Boohoo Dress Of The Month

The Silk Number // Boohoo Dress Of The Month - November // Lauren Rose Bell // London Fashion, Style & Lifestyle Blogger // AW16 TREND
Boohoo recently reached out to me and challenged me to style their 'Dress Of The Month'. I jumped at the challenge as I am a firm believer in always trying to step out of your comfort zone, find your inner confidence and push yourself into trying new things. In this case the challenge in hand was to style a dress that perhaps I would not normally have considered to choose.

This silk number arrived in the post last week and I have to say I loved the style. This victoriana style is very on trend right now for AW16. The lace details and silk texture give this classic style a revival and creates more of a gothic edge. We have seen the vampy inspiration for this trend on the AW16 catwalks this year with showcases from Marc Jacobs to Burberry to Valentino and this trend has now trickled down into mainstream fashion from these luxury brands.

This dress is a bargain at £20, and can be worn for a casual day look like I have styled here or a fancy evening look. It also is available in black, which I am tempted by. My idea behind styling this dress was to show the versatility of the piece. Not only can it be worn as a dress, but also how it can be used as the perfect layer in an outfit for this season. Throwing a cosy jumper over a dress transforms the look and creates the illusion that actually maaaybe I am wearing a skirt.

Layers are also essential right now since November has gotten so cold! I grabbed this grey coat out of my wardrobe that I have actually had for a few years now. It is one of those trusty staple pieces that I bring out every single winter. I love the mix of grey tones in this look, with the black pieces creating more of an edge to the outfit.

I think that these gorgeous high knee boots work perfectly with this dress and add a bit more glam points to the look. I actually picked these beauty's up in Primark at the weekend. Can you believe it? I am so happy that I found them and at a bargain price of just £22. Not only do they look great, but they actually do a good job in keeping my legs warm. They also allow me to secretly wear comfy, patterned knee-high socks underneath without anyone around me knowing.

I am actually quite proud of this look I have created and I think I successfully made this dress my own. I hope this has given you some inspiration to try and experiment a bit more with fashion. Leave your comfort zone, try pieces you wouldn't normally go for and push yourself to just have fun with it. Fashion should always be fun! This mantra can also be replicated in our own lives. There is always something new out there to try, whether it is fashion, a new food or even a new hobby. It can literally be anything. What have you always thought about doing, but never actually done. Just go and do it! After all, what is life without a challenge?
