Styling a skater dress

I know I should post more ‘fashion’ updates but I just can’t take myself and style too seriously. One thing I can do though is style the shit out of a skater dress (It’s taking a lot for me to just type ‘skater’ instead of an ironic ‘sk8eerzz’) I thought I would show you 3 ways I wear my trusty burgundy dress.

 So there’s the dress, on it’s own. It’s quite basic yet I find it really flattering on occasions when I am not posing like I’ve eaten too many smarties for dinner.

 So the first way you can wear a basic plain dress is by contrasting that shit up. Nothing goes better with burgundy than my favourite colour MUSTARD. Grab a plain mustard belt and an oversized cardigan and rock that contrast. You know you want to. Effortlessly yet effective. Smug face optional.
 Secondly you can get a bit Florence Welch with a light boho number. The crochet back stands out more against a dark colour than your own FLESH. Also this dress is slightly see through so a plain dress to wear underneath hides a multitude of sins.
And last but not least grab your favourite jumper you found on ebay. It’s meant to be summer afterall *snarf*. I like wearing green colours with red colours because it reminds me of apples. You might want to also try and wear shoes when you do outfit posts as it’s not really complete without them. My bad.
How do you style your sk8errr dress? (I know we ALL have one!)
