Workwear With Lovedrobe: Blue Moon Print Cross Over Dress



I find it hard finding workwear that feels like me. A lot of dresses suitable for the office are unflattering, void of personality or a combination of the two. However, the lovely lot at Lovedrobe have really nailed workwear for me. Along with the gorgeous occasionwear and casual stuff they do they have a great selection of office appropriate styles which are professional yet still feel like me. 




Cropped Knitted Cardigan - Primark (previous season)


This Lovedrobe dress is comfortable, yet smart. Navy is a softer alternative to black and I have a lot of it in my wardrobe because I think it works well with red hair. The pattern on the bodice of the dress is what got me. I love the idea that it is a moon print rather than just a plain spot. The giant polka dots make the dress feel a little more me, and give a bit of interest to an otherwise simple style. 








The dress features a faux cross over, and a tie - which usually I suppose is tied to the back but I prefer to tie it to the front. The dress is chiffon so it hangs beautifully and floats over any lumps and bumps, meaning I am wearing no shapewear. I am wearing a size 24 here, and honestly I could have done with a 22 (I sized up because I was worried it would be tight across my tummy as the skirt is narrow). It fits fine everywhere but the bust where it is quite a bit too big, and I had to do some creative pinning to make it fit. Even if it had fitted properly I reckon I still would have needed a safety pin to preserve my dignity in the office and not have my bra hanging out. Ha! I also love the length of this dress, hitting me just above the knee on my 5'8 frame - perfect! And fine without tights for work :) 

I think I may take the bust in a bit, and then I know this will be a really useful staple in my working wardrobe. I have another great work wear dress review from Lovedrobe in the pipeline, so check back next week...

  1. Oh my goodness, this dress is absolutely beautiful and really suits you. Being large busted, I'm a huge fan of anything with a cross over front and love the print, and how the dress is split onto two parts. The tie-detail at the front is super cute! The colour is so perfect with your hair too. :)
