I love a good black dress in the summer and equally, I love a good cream or white dress. This Hush Magnolia dress is white but I wouldn’t say that it’s a brilliant, bright, white – it’s more of a creamy white.
I spotted this dress when I was in John Lewis at the weekend and thought that the styling of it was great, which is why I wanted to share it on here.
OK so it doesn’t have sleeves, which I know lots of women prefer but it does have a v-neck which as those of you with a bit of a curve in the boob department will know, is a good thing. The straps are wide enough to accommodate a decent width bra strap and the way it nips in at the narrowest part of the waist is flattering.
It can be really hard to find the v-neck/wide strap/ nipped in waist combo in a dress and if you do, often the skirt lets it down by either being very full in a 1950’s style way, or more commonly, they are found on a maxi dress.
The skirt part of this dress isn’t too full though, plus it’s a great length, lending itself to heels, flats or skater trainers. Plus – just look at those pockets! For those of you who like pockets, this is a winner!
Hush Magnolia Dress from John Lewis (£89)
I love the simplicity of this dress as it’s such a great backdrop for so many looks, whether it’s with pom pom sandals for a casual summer day, with a black jacket for a monochrome look, with tan accessories for a typical summer colour combination or with neon brights – like this lovely ear-rings from Alice’s Wonders (£6)
For anyone wondering what’s going on in the hem department. it’s the lining which can be seen through it, which personally I like because it makes it look a little “undone”.
