Another way to get more wear out of those clothes we have accumulates in out wardrobes by the time we hit our 50s. Once again a way to take that sleeveless black dress to create a look for a winter dinner party – or restaurant meal when you need to add a little extra warmth.
For this simple look I’ve added a set of mesh sleeves ‘under’ and a faux fur gilet ‘over’. I love my costume jewellery – I’ve added one of my craft fair finds – a chunky leaf on a long chain. The effect of the long chain creates a strong ‘v’ , drawing the eye down and creating the illusion of a longer neck – helpful to those of us who might be developing an extra chin as we get older!
The dress I’ve used in the video series is from Ceme London – a sleeveless jersey crepe dress which is fabulous for creating all the different looks – not to mention flattering with the ruching hitting all the right places and minimising tums,lumps and bumps. They also do a fabulous range of dresses WITH sleeves too.
