Italian Inspired

smaller-4Taking you all from a post on my favorite mini red dress, to now about my favorite midi red dress probably means I have a slight obsession with the color red. I really love a bold print for a dress especially when it comes in a flattering silhouette such as this one.  It’s the perfect wow factor needed, of course there is a limit to how the print is displayed because too much can make a dress look slightly tacky and cheap, but if the design is done in a proper and cohesive manner, then the dress can instantly go from tacky to incredibly chic.

When I saw this stunning dress I fell in love, not only is it the perfect length (a length I feel more comfortable with than the mini) but it has that perfect bold print, the kind that doesn’t hurt the eyes but instead is visually pleasing, sort of reminds me of Italian designs. Another bonus might I add, is that this dress can also flatter many shapes, it has a great stretch to it and the upper half is modest with plenty of coverage.  Perfect for those who are not as comfortable showing off too much of their chest, which also means this look is appropriate for practically any occassion.  The pattern throughout the dress also slims the body versus widening it, an important part of any outfit that every woman takes into consideration regardless of what size she may already be.  Are you sold on this look yet?

I paired this dress with a simple pair of black strappy sandals and grabbed a simple small leather zip clutch that is conveniently two toned ( in colors black and gray) to polish off the look, because this dress is a statement all on its own there is no reason to bother with any extra accessorizing, basically less is definitely more!
