Reassess your dress

October 26, 2014

Summer is heating up, and with so many events coming up we thought we’d lend a spotlight on Laloom dresses – perfect for light dressing to stay cool and stylish – and how to wear them for all sorts of occasions.

“The race that stops a nation” is just around the corner – this November 4, Melbourne Cup day what will you be wearing?  This iconic Australian event is always something to look forward to…and dress up for. For those outside the metropolitan area or attending more informal Melbourne Cup events but still want to have a new dress, topped off with a fabulous fascinator, the Silk Caren dress is transformed into the perfect outfit! (And you can wear it again for a different event).  Dress for success and “may the odds be ever in your favour!”

Dress…to de-stress

One of the all-time fashion conundrums is this – how do you dress looking stylish and be comfortable at the same time?  We often wear very comfortable clothes at home, but they’re usually not very stylish at all – let alone something you would want to be seen out in public in.  Maxi dresses are the ultimate answer in resort wear – comfort is all about quality and fit; maxi dresses skim and don’t cling, but they also don’t appear boxy or baggy.  Colourful prints and high-quality fabric that doesn’t sag and crinkle, lend to a stylish summer outfit.  For everyday wear, lazy afternoon brunches, or dinner with friends where you still want to have a bit dazzle in your step, maxi dresses are the dresses to de-stress and wind down in.

Dress…with finesse

When you think of Kaftan dresses or summer dresses, it’s not just about the dress but how you accessorise it.  In a previous blog, Kaftan Stylin’,we shared some ideas on how to pair your Laloom garments with a variety of different accessories such as bags, belts and jewellery all which help to design an entirely different outfit each time you wear your dress.  The art of fashion is in the details, it’s all about self-expression, to dress with finesse incorporate pieces that you love!

Hide that “food baby” during a bountiful luncheon, or flatter your body without having to, as they “suck it in”, because who could enjoy a lovely lunch where you can’t even breathe naturally?  There are a plethora of events that will come your way when you just won’t feel like showing every nook and cranny your body has.  Bump-friendly maxi dresses are great to keep you cool and radiant without giving away too much.  If you’re a mum, you’ll equally appreciate the ease of putting on a maxi dress, effortless style indeed.
