A little more formal for this one and a totally different style to the previously featured dresses with sleeves. You can be formal without looking frumpy over 50.
This style of dress always reminds me of Grace Kelly – it has that retro 50s feel. The flared skirt is ideal for pear shapes. The ‘V’ neckline helps to elongate the neck. The ruching around the middle helps to camouflage any thickening around the middle. The embroidery around the hemline helps to soften the whole dress an make it slightly less formal and as a result more versatile. The cobalt of the skirt and cuffs adds a vibrancy to the dress.
I would wear this dress with ultra feminine heels
This Eliza J dress costs £130 and is available from House of Fraser
