One dress, three ways

The lovely people over at Marks and Spencer challenged me to take one of their new AW13 dresses, and style it three ways. Having seen their new range, I jumped at the chance!

Marks and Spencer Limited Collection AW13 Sheer Panel Shift Dress

I chose this gorgeous Limited Edition Sheer Panel Shift dress. Never one to shy away from colour, I was instantly attracted to the bright red tomato colour and it certainly didn’t disappoint when it arrived. The dress is fitted with a zip fastening to the back and has a pretty sheer panel that runs along the collar line and also down the sleeves. I love wearing dresses mainly because they are so versatile so I knew that I would have fun styling this three ways!

Marks and Spencer Limited Collection AW13 Sheer Panel Shift DressRight, outfit number one. A coffee date with my favourite bearded man and what better excuse to wear my new dress? I wore it here with my black Primark biker jacket, Wolford black opaques and my Ash Jalouse Spiral ankle boots. I think this might be my favourite of the three looks.

Outfit number two. It was a here there and everywhere kind of day with children to be deposited at school and errands to be run. I wore the dress with black Topshop leggings, black patent boots from LK Bennett, my X by Trollbeads bracelet and a Lulu Guinness handbag from the olden days when I could afford to indulge my handbag habit.

Outfit number three. A Saturday of food shopping, ferrying around of children with much more exciting social lives than me and a trip to the park thrown in for good measure. Here I wore the dress as a tunic with indigo skinny jeans from Marks and Spencer, a feather print scarf also from Marks and Spencer and jewelled ballet flats from Next.

From dressed up, to dressed right down and somewhere in between, I absolutely loved this dress. I loved how it fitted and best of all I loved just how versatile it was. So, how did I do? Did I meet the one dress three ways challenge?

    I have to say I always lookforward to your fashion reviews and your ‘what I wore Wednesday’. This is a beautiful dress and I liked what you did. For me, 2&3 are a little similar. I would’ve liked to see one of the different ways dressed up a little, not necessarily a big night out but maybe,’a few drinks with the girls’ type of scenario. Not that either of us had time for that too often these days! X

    Fab! You look lovely (as usual) in all the outfits. Love the dress and the price is really good. I am finding when I do venture to the high street Good old M & S is always spot on with the trends and the prices. Xxx
