When Boohoo got in touch about their Bloggers X Dress of the Month Campaign, I was super excited. And also a bit nervous. The idea behind the campaign is that we gave Boohoo our size and the dress was an absolute mystery. They wanted to see how it will adapt to different body types, different personal styles, and breaking the ‘rules’ of what ‘can’ and ‘can’t’ be worn. Also, it’s going to be super interesting to see how everyone styled it, especially since none of us picked it out for ourselves.
To be honest, it wasn’t something that I would have gravitated to for myself. I like my dresses roomy, but usually with a tiny bit more definition. The colours and stripes were perfect for me and blend in with 90% of my wardrobe. (Which is basically just navy, white and grey.)
I was a bit lost at how to make it my own at first. I’m not a massive accessories person. I wear my rings, a watch or bracelet and simple stud earrings and that’s pretty much it. I think I may have taken the “take one accessory off before you leave the house” advice a little bit too literally. But the challenge is all about making it your own!
So I threw on a pair on ankle boots, because I basically live in them and added on a belt to give me a bit more of my craved definition. I might set this aside as my feasting dress. If I pop the belt off, I have infinite room for around 20 burrito babies. I also prefer a vneck line on myself, so I popped on a grey croptop underneath the shirt dress so that I could unbutton it comfortably.
I can’t wait to see how everyone else styled their Boohoo dress of the month. Check out the dresses section on Boohoo for more inspiration!
What dress would you never imagine yourself in? Would you be game for styling a mystery dress?
