Dresses with Sleeves 2014 challenge – Day 10 – Day to Evening

Boden chic dressArticle by Ceri Wheeldon

Style over 50 is all about creating a look that works for you. I also like to build my wardrobe with clothes that are as versatile as possible and will work for more than one occasion. No point having wardrobe of beautiful dresses, rarely worn that simply gather dust at the back of the wardrobe. I like dresses that you can dress up or down. Dress for the office – look chic over 50 in this simple black wool dress from Boden. I love the fact that it is a very simple cut – easy to play down for daytime at the office with understated jewellery and flats or kitten heels, but then the simplicity of the dress really lends itself to adding a statement necklace, bright pashmina, sleek clutch and high heels for a quick change for the evening.

I mostly associate Boden with prints- but they do have a number of quite plain chic dresses, so definitely worth taking a look .

At the time of publishing, this dress was discounted and price ranged from £97 to £111.20 depending on colour and size selected. Available from Boden.
