Fifty Plus Style: The Summer Dress

Hurray for the chance to wear a frock for everyday – not just for a special occasion.  The only time I ever wear a dress normally is for a night out, an occasion such as a wedding, or on holiday overseas, but something about a British summer gives me permission to rock a frock just for hanging about.  This one is from M&S and cost £34 in this year’s summer sale.  The pink cardi was £6 from Primark and the bag was £50 from Lakeland Leather (reduced from £109 in the sale).   The great thing about this dress is that its crinkly material takes no ironing and it can be used and abused and still look OK.



What are your thoughts on frocks ladies?

  1. I wear dresses all the time, especially for work. The jersey wrapover style or empire line is my go-to for all occasions, flattering and forgiving – with cardi and boots and thick tights in the winter and with sandals in the summer. Never needs ironing (always a bonus!!) looks smart but not stuffy, you can dress it up or down with accessories.
    I also love a maxi dress.
    You look great in the photo btw, very chic…
