“ Brand: New Look / Type: Dress „
I actually purchased this dress from New Look last year, how-ever when browsing on the New Look website; I noticed that they have these dresses back in stock for this year. The dress first caught my eye due to the bright colour of the dress which was blue; how-ever it does come in an orange colour and white. I also loved the white crochet detailing on the top of the dress as this made the dress less plain. I don't own any casual summer dresses so this made me want to buy it even more. The dress was purchased from my local New Look store for £12.99 and is available from a size 6-16. I am a size 8 on the top and normally a size 10 on the bottom so I went for a size 8 and this fit me perfectly.
The dress is made from 35% Cotton and 65% Polyester so the dress has some stretch to it. The dress has an elasticated waist giving the dress a bit more shape and it has lovely crochet detailing on the top of the dress in white. The dress has thin straps which can be adjusted. I have worn the dress many times during the summer and when the weather has been nice. The dress is soft and really comfortable to wear and is stretchy so moves with your body. The dress isn't too short which is good as I feel comfortable in it without showing too much flesh. The straps adjust very easily, and adjust the same way a bra does. I have worn the dress down to my local pub and into town when shopping and it looks great with flat sandals or flip flops. As the dress is made from Polyester and Cotton it's also nice and cool.
The dress can be machine washed and then left to dry naturally. Although the colour is a bright blue I have washed the dress many times and the colour hasn't yet faded and there's no bobbling to the dress either. The dress fits just as well as it did when I first purchased it and hasn't shrunk at all.
I give the dress 5 out of 5 stars as it's really comfortable to wear and comes in 3 great colours for the summer.
