I'm a big fan of Dorothy Perkins and everyone knows that right. Well when last few weeks I posted a collage of pictures of the Dorothy Perkins dresses I tried in my Instagram & Facebook & asked for some of your opinion which to buy. And the blue dress is the top pick and I bought it few days ago :)
So many people always asked me how do I usually pick my dress, first we got to know our body shape. I know I looked the best in flare dress. So this coming autumn/winter collection out in the store, what should I pick? I got to consider the weather that we have in Malaysia which is summer all year long with lots of rain at year end!
This time around Dorothy Perkins has collaborated with Ms. Natalie Hartley who is the Fashion Director in InStyle Magazine in UK to introduce the "Style Essentials" for this autumn/winter 2013.
Note : This free booklet is available in any Dorothy Perkins store in Malaysia
Ms Natalie introduced 10 key pieces that will instantly update our Autumn Winter look:-
1) The Biker
2) The Sculpted Tee
3) The 2 in 1 dress
4) The Fit & Flare Dress
5) The Skirt
6) The Fur
7) The Blouse
8) The Item Sweat
9) The Cute Fit Knit
10) The Skinny
According to Ms. Natalie's fashion tips, she said this type of dress is Dorothy Perkin's signature, where it is perfect for most body shape, where we can wear with pumps for day or heels at night! And yes I do love flare dress and it is a must have in all girl's wardrobe!
Thanks to the kind people in Dorothy Perkins who sent me this Black/white check 2 in 1 skater fit & flare dress before it was even available for sale in Malaysia so that I could be the first one in Malaysia to wear it :)
For my day look on weekends, I pair it with my wedges & a sling bag and was ready to catch up lunch with my friends & shopping!
I wore this to one of the important meeting I attended few weeks ago where I need to look professional. I matched it with black Coat, black pump & black tote bag to complete the look. Don't you think this dress looked like a cheat 2 pieces here?
The flare dress material is really comfortable to wear & the cutting flatter my body shape. I love how it can from a casual look to a professional look. And after the meeting , I took out the coat, change my shoes and well it look more casual like above :D
After that I went to the Dorothy Perkins store to check out the remaining of the A/W collections & I did followed Natalie's fashion tip!
On the left, the Sculpted Tee in Red is really comfy, versatile and easy to match either with pants or skirt. Unfortunately it was a bit too long for me or else I would totally get this...
Check playsuit with black shorts and collar detail inside leg is really cute right! I was thinking whether I should get this or not. Should I get this ?
This Ivory lace top 2 in 1 dress is love in first sight, one can never go wrong with white or black, especially if it's lace. I love it's simplicity and immediately bought this when I tried it!
- Dorothy Perkins Blush lace shift dress is a full lace dress with collar.
- Petite collared shift dress in animal print shift with a contrasting black collar.
- Red animal collar shift dress
Which looks nice ?
Dorothy Perkins Blush embellished 2 in 1 dress with black pencil skirt.
The left one has really nice details on the top while the left comes in full black gave an illusion of slimmer figure. Both below cutting is really body hugging especially the right one because its leather material and does not flatter my shape.. I would think it would look nice for people that has smaller bottom.
I also bought this Plum 1/2 sleeve mesh top dress, love this colour!
So now tell me what is your essential pick this season ?
