Day 7 of the 2014 Dresses with Sleeves Challenge fabulous for creating a waist


LK Bennett poppy dress £245Article by Ceri Wheeldon

On Day 7 of the Dresses with Sleeves Challenge  I have chosen a dress which I think is fabulous for creating a waist.

The right dress really can help disguise a thicker middle – unfortunately a common issue for women over 50!

A fabulous fresh spring dress. I love the way that the placement of the blue poppy print draws the eye to the waist, creating a waist even if you don’t have one!

The short sleeves are long enough to cover the upper arms – hide those bingo wings!

The square neckline is flattering.

I would keep accessories to a minimum.  A pair of kitten heels and a discreet clutch .This is an ultra feminine dress. Just need an occasion to wear it!

This dress from LK Bennett is available from John Lewis and costs £245
