New look online is possibly one of my favourite stores in the world and I was delighted when I found this little beauty in pink on there a couple of months ago here us what I though.
This is a lovely peplum dress with vest style sleeves and an almost knee length skirt (I am only five foot) the peplum is great for hiding a larger stomach and us very flattering.The pink I have is more of a baby pink but this is smart enough to wear to the office.
I wear this with tights but it is long enough to wear with bare legs and still short enough to wear with leggings.
Quality and Fit
The material is a mixture of jersey and viscose meaning this sits just right for me. I am a 14-16 and as this was only my second or third purchase on the online store a bought a 16 just in case it is a little too big and a14 would have been better. This does not cling to every lump and bump the way some of these dresses do, instead it helps to create a very flattering silhouette.
The dress is also totally opaque so no need to worry about your bra showing through! The straps are also thick enough to high bra straps.
The peplum initially looks quite flimsy but must have washed mine a doesn't times now and it is still go strong.
Note I have done this on a 40 degree wash and hung it to dry and cannot comment on what would happen if tumble dried.
Price and Availability
This can be bought both online or in the new look stores, but the collection is much better online for all if their basic dresses and there is a huge choice of colour and fits available. You can pick to collect in store or have ordered to your home and if you spend over £45 delivery free.
Great well made dress and that I would like on some more colours!
This weekend just gone it has been my birthday and I had planned a birthday party because it was my big 21st and I don't usually do anything for it. My usual fashion style is gothic/punk/alternate styling and everything I had I just didn't seem to want to wear so a month before the party I started buying some dresses that wasn't like me so I could see how it looked on me and eventually wear one for the party. I bought this peplum dress from New Look for just £9.99.
I usually shop in places like Topshop so for me to find a dress that is nice, girly, stands out and is unlike me in every way for just a tenner I was pretty chuffed. The dress stood out for me personally because of the vibrant colour, I usually don't wear any colour in my clothes because of my pale complexion but this is a bright blue dress and I did want a bit of a change, something that would make difference for my birthday.
This dress made out of 95% Polyester, 5% Elastane. This makes the dress a clingy one which did make me worried about those little lumps and bumps, I usually wear dresses that come in at the waist and then flow out but this clings to the full body shape which by the time I was all dressed up I loved. I'm quite small so this came just above my knees which I did roll up by a couple of inches so I didn't look silly, after I had done that I was pleased that it was now a nice length on me. I was worried about those lumps and bumps but the frilly part around the waist nicely covers all those bits!
To make the most of this dress I teamed it with suspender tights, night ribboned wedges, some black bracelets, a leather jacket and my clutch bag making the dress stand out loads. I was very drunk that night and the dress was extremely comfortable and light to wear, it didn't make me slip out anywhere and it didn't roll down, the outfit was a complete success and I was really pleased I had bought it.
This is still in stock online and in store and is available in sizes 6 - 18. This is also available in several shades from blue, pink, black and green.
