Styling A Cold Shoulder Dress

The cold shoulder detail is my favourite this year, I much prefer them to bardot style tops/dresses because they don’t fall down or sit weirdly (she says as she owns at least 5 bardot tops). When I was wandering around Swindon last weekend with the boy we walked off our Frankie and Benny’s food babies in Matalan and I spotted such a beauty of a cold shoulder dress. I’d seen the print of the dress before because they have it on trousers, skirts, tops (you name it) and my mum even owns a long-line sleeveless shirt in the same pattern – the cold shoulder dress had to be mine.

I was waltzing around with my friend Paris the other day (who btw has been a babe at taking most of my recent blog photos) and this dress made the perfect outfit for a summery lunch. Couldn’t resist some outfit shots in the sun with my favourite sun hat!















Dress – Matalan

Bag – c/o PLB

Hat – ASOS (similar here too for only £6!)

Shoes – c/o Whistle Candy

This dress is only £16… Can you believe it?! I think Matalan is such an underrated brand! These shoes from Whistle Candy are absolutely adorable too and they currently have 50% off sale footwear (of course including the ones I’m wearing, they’re £7.50) so make sure you check ’em out!

    I love this dress! I thought it was a top when I saw it on instagram and now I love it more!! I never go to Matalan, there isn’t many where I live so I rarely ever go. Definitely need to pop in. I need those shoes too. Going to look at the whistle candy site now xx

      Isn’t it gorgeous! I luckily have a shop right near me but I still think it’s so underused! The quality is great!

    Im digging the cold shoulder trend for the exact same reason, i dont have to constantly pull it up or sort out how its sitting, so much better! The dress is so nice, the print is perf x
