“ Brand: Boohoo/ Type: Womens Dress „
Recently there's been a growing popularity of skater dresses and luckily for me I was already a fan and this trend just meant I could grab myself a dress for less than it would cost if it was still unpopular. I've shopped online on Boohoo.com frequently as they have a huge range of clothing items for both men and women and their prices are very reasonable. This particular dress cost me £15 which comparing it with a store of similar quality such as Topshop where a dress like this could sell for as much as £40, this is very reasonable and much more in my price range. Currently this dress is for sale at £10 on Boohoo because of it being the end of the season and comes only in size 14.
The material is quite thick and so it falls nicely and the pleats look good. The belt singes in the waist making you look slimmer and despite looking very short it isn't too small (but then again I'm pretty short myself so that could be me, it comes to midway down my thigh). The dress is sleeveless which arguably makes it look even more slimming as it goes straight down. The style is very current and yet is also quite timeless.
The dress comes in a variety of colours including teal, red, black, purple, pink, yellow/mustard (as shown in the picture) and I've also seen other similar skater dresses on the website which are near identical but have patterns like stripes. Being that the dress is very feminine I tend to think the pale colours make you look extra dainty as it were, but then again the dress looks equally nice in very dark striking shades.
I am quite top heavy and pretty short and yet the dress still looks quite good on me and fits considerably well. The material is soft which is something I wasn't too sure about because sometimes thicker materials feel a little too hot and heavy for me.
The dress can also be bought on ebay now as many different online stores there tend to stock it. They tend to be priced at a very reasonable £10 (not including postage) and so if you are looking for more variety and a good price I'd recommend looking there.
Overall this is definitely a product I would recommend as it is very flattering, fits well and when they are well stocked can be purchased in a large variety of colours to suit any taste.
I love shopping on Boohoo, I love their fashion and think is really kooky and cute. I bought this skater dress in February in a charcoal Grey colour and it goes with everything.
It literally makes you figure the best it can be, honestly, this dress is magic, who ever came up with the idea of giving you a bigger bust, smaller waist, and long skinny legs deserves a medal!
The dress creates an illusion, giving you a perfect hour-glass figure even if you don't have one.
The top of the dress it 'scoop' neck (like a vest) it is fitted, maximising the size of your bust. It then nips you in at the waist (still very fitted/tight) and the bold black belt draws the eye to it, emphasising your waist making it seem smaller. Below the waist it goes out into a full skater style skirt, hiding your bottom and the fact the skirt is big/fuller, it makes you legs look longer and skinnier.
The dress is 97% polyester and 3% elastane, the material is quite weighty but still wearable. It is comes in 13 colours, and sizes from UK 8 - 16. I often find that the boohoo sizes are a little bigger than other stores (however I vary from a size 8 in some shops to a size 12 in others) so if you are on the fence between to sizes id go for the smaller one.
As the dress is brightly coloured, don't risk the rest of you washing..... wash it on it's own the first time, just in case:/
I wear the dress in 2 ways -
1) At home with a plain white long sleeved top underneath, a pair of back leggings and some boots
2) On its own, a pair of tan tights and some heels
Casual and Party in one dress!
Value for Money
I purchased it for £15 (that what i love about boohoo, they don't put stupid prices like 14.99, every other dress in every other shop seems to be priced at something 99, that might just be me being picky though) Incredible price for a very good quality dress!
Have got no criticism for this product, I love it I love it I love it!!!!!
I got 2 of these dresses in a plum and black colour for the winter, and i love them, they are a little thinker than other dresses meaning you will still be warm wearing with tights and a Cardigan over the winter, and during spring they can be worn as a nice floaty dress. although the colours i bought are not very spingy! the quality of the dress is great, and they are so cheap, for only £15 i was really impressed, and many shops are selling the same dresses for double the price. The 2 dresses i got both came with belts, one belt was great, the other was not so, although it can be replaced with a belt of your own choice.
I would recommend this dress to all of my friends, i got lots of compliments wearing it and i love the style
Although they either make them in s/m or size 8 for the smallest sizes, i would recommend going for s/m as its actually smaller than an 8, the size 8 comes up much bigger so was a bit baggy on me
I got this dress from www.boohoo.com and it cost me £15.00. The dress is available from size 8 up to about size 14. There is a large range of colours including Black, Purple, Berry, Green, Teal, Red, Mustard and other colours. In totally there are at least 7-9 colours to choose from. Each dress comes with a black skinny belt.
I have seen similar style dresses to this one in a number of different shops and on a number of different celebrities. The dress is called a Skater dress and comes in a large range of different colours and sizes. The dress looks quite short, how-ever I was surprised when I received it that it's actually longer than it looks. This type of dress is available to buy in a range of different pattern's including stripes and spots. The dress itself it made from a thick material which is quite nice as it doesn't look too cheap and isn't a thin looking material. The material feels soft and has a slight feel of wool to it. I had previously tried on one of these dresses in a shop and it unfortunately made my legs look quite big, how-ever I loved the style of the dress so I decided to take a chance and purchase one from boohoo.com instead. The dress has a fitted top to it which has a nice round neck-line. The bottom half of the dress is quite flowing and does come out slightly, because of the way the bottom of half of the dress flows, this shape of dress is perfect for most body shapes and sizes as it's quite flattering and isn't tight fitting round the bum or the legs. The dress is sleeveless which is nice as you can just wear it with a little cardigan or jacket when going out. In terms of length of the dress it comes about 2 inches above my knee so this dress can easily be worn in the day as well. With the dress you also get a nice, black skinny belt, so you can tighten the dress around the waist-line, this tucks the dress in a little and doesn't make it look so plain. I ordered the purple coloured dress which is a nice dark purple. I didn't really want to go for a black dress as I own too many black dresses and I thought if I got a nice colour I could easily wear this during the day with black tights.
The dress fit's my frame really nicely. I haven't got a big bust, so it doesn't make me look too top heavy. I have a slim figure and when I tried on a dress like this previously it made my legs look a little big so I was worried this dress was going to do the same. How-ever it really compliments my body shape and it doesn't make my legs look chunky as the previous dress. As this dress is a reasonable length, I have also worn it in the day with black tights when going out for a meal with my boyfriend and his mum. I have already considered buying the dress in another colour as it's suitable for a number of occasions. The skinny black belt that comes with the dress can be removed, for when washing the dress and you can also put in a gold or silver belt to dress it up a bit more if you are wearing it for a night out. This is a lovely dress and is well worth treating yourself to one.
