Twist on a classic: Blush Wrap Dress + Nude Heels

This look is one of my recent favourites. I've always loved remixing older pieces from my closet with new finds. I currently came across this dress from Topshop; after eyeing it for a couple of weeks, I decided to get it. Wrap dresses are one of the most effortlessly chic dresses to wear! The wrap dress is universally flattering. This one is an empire waist so it ties at the smallest part of your waist. This dress has a couple of different features making it a twist on a classic.

There are actually three panels on the bottom giving a flowy feel and creating a slit when walking. When the breeze catches the dress, it makes it even prettier. There are several colours that this dress comes in but this soft blush colour won me over.

The second feature that makes it stand out from the classic wrap dress is the fact that it is asymetrical. This is a look that I have always stayed away from as it just hasn't been my taste but I liked so many other aspects of this dress that I decided to give it a try.

The neckline is elongating and is great for fuller chests. Although most wrap dresses are appropriate office wear, I don't recommend this one due to the asymmetrical hemline. It is however perfect for weddings, showers and date nights.

As beautiful as this dress is however, there are a few things to note. The panels at the bottom, although create for beautiful movement in the breeze, can make for a wardrobe malfunction as the panels go all the way up. I would recommend wearing a short slip with this dress. I love that the panels create a peekaboo slit without showing too much leg.

I have linked the exact dress below and a few others that are very similar. My shoes and other similar clutches are also linked below.
