Last week I posted the first of three dresses that I picked from Topshop to give you inspiration if you’re looking for a dress to wear for an event over the summer such as a wedding, prom or summer party. In this post I have chosen a black dress with an off the shoulder style. A lot of people like to play it safe and wear all black (I usually only wear black!) but I think it’s nice when you can explore a little within your comfort zones which I think this dress allows. The A line skirt makes it a bit flirty and fun and the off the shoulder element makes it more than just a regular black dress. Check out the photos below and all other pieces are linked that the bottom of the post. Shop this exact dress from Topshop by clicking here.
I chose to style this dress with a pair of pointed toe ankle boots as to not make it too girly and a contrast from the dress I posted last week (which you can check out here). I love the look of ankle boots with dresses and skirts but if you didn’t want to wear heels, flat sandals or pumps would be a great alternative. Especially if it’s a daytime party, nobody likes wearing heels all day long!
