Fashion Day: Styling The Boohoo Cutaway Midi Dress

Remember this dress I featured a few weeks ago?

Cutaway Scuba Midi Dress

And then I went ahead and decided to make a purchase?  Last week, I also shared my hits and misses from Boohoo, and this particular dress happens to be one of those hits!

As promised, here is the ^Boohoo cutaway midi dress styled my way.

Styling The Boohoo Cut Out Midi Dress

Because the bodice is pretty high up and I am rather short, I decided to add a thick bronze belt around my waist to give an illusion of a longer torso.  I do have a short torso as well so such dresses do cut me off and make me look stumpy.  The bodice is also rather fitted, which means you or in this case I can actually go without a bra.  In fact I think it would look better without one.  In the images I’ve shared here, I have actually worn a strapless bra, which lifts up everything and makes me look like I have something about to bulge up the sides due to the cutaway style of the bodice.

The dress is made from what they would call a “scuba” material – it is stretchy and has a bit more drape than the usual stretchy polyester materials.  It can be described as similar to ponte but with a lot more give.  Due to this fact, it also means that when the style has a pleat in it, it does tend to puff up a little bit more.  In this case, if I didn’t wear that wide belt, I would end up looking like a beached whale or pregnant!

The fabric also has a lovely sheen, making it look more luxurious than it actually cost me!  I haven’t got anywhere to wear this to yet, but there’s a wedding in December, of which I’m looking forward to going because I LOVE weddings and I can wear this dress!  Size-wise, I’ve chosen a size up, in a 10, as with all my other dresses and skirts I purchase from Boohoo.
