You want to make a statement? Wear a red dress. Red is a classic colour which stays on-trend from season to season. And I absolutely love this midi dress from GHOST. It’s effortlessly chic and so feminine and you can really wear it anywhere, from the office, to dinner or drinks, and even to a wedding, easily done by switching up your shoes and accessories.
But as I wanted to capture a striking, dramatic and confident style, I took this preppy dress to the next level with black diamonds, a lightweight waterfall jacket and a killer pair of contemporary ankle boots. Yes, I could have played safe with an obvious pair of black sandals… but I think these boots give attitude and confidence to the whole outfit.
I must say, this style is very distinctive for the Winter Type, and I love that it carries excitement under a dignified surface… I must emphasise that only the Winter Type can pull off this outfit simply because of the great sense of drama that it portrays.
