Dresses with Sleeves 2014 challenge Day 12 – feminine and fun for spring

pink dress with sleeves for women over 50Article by Ceri Wheeldon

You can be pretty in pink over 50 . I think this dress with sleeves from Kaleidoscope is  a fun dress for the spring to introduce for Day 12 of the challenge.. It is pink enough to be feminine, but the placement of the paisley print gives it a grown up current feel. Wearing pink close to the face adds softness. The  clever placement of the pattern around the middle again creates the illusion of a waist – and helps to draw the eye in at the hips.

The right underwear is essential with this dress – flesh coloured shapewear would work best – especially if you are on the curvy side (as I am).

I would this dress  with gold or pink drop earrings , a cream or rose coloured clutch and nude coloured court shoes – unless of course you want to make a statement with a pair of fabulous pink heels 🙂

The Heine Paisley Print Dress is £75 from Kaleidoscope.
