Pretty pleats

Outfit - Style Compare Pleats ChallengeOutfit - Style Compare Pleats Challenge

Every month I look forward to Style Compare’s blogger challenges – I just love seeing how differently each person interprets the theme. This month Style Compare kindly asked me to take part and our challenge was to style pleats!

I’m a bit too much of a fan of the pleated midi so seeing as that wouldn’t have been in the spirit of challenge I chose a sublime fit and flare dress by Oasis, which has a 50s-style, deep-pleated, full skirt. One of my new year’s resolutions was to ”buy less, buy better” and this is definitely a valuable wardrobe addition; it’s easily dressed up or down and it’ll be made Britain-appropriate with tights and chunky knits!

Take a peek at everyone else’s pleat looks too and if you fancy the chance to win a £25 voucher just vote for your favourite outfit by heading to the bottom of the page and clicking the heart under the blogger! (The winning blogger also gets a £100 voucher, hint, hint…!). Thanks so much to Style Compare for asking me to take part!

What I wore:

Oasis Lori dress with belt (via House of Fraser, c/o Style Compare)*

Primark ankle socks

ASOS leather brogues

Gogo Philip locket*

    This dress is so cute and I’m sure it’ll look great in early fall with tights and a knit cardigan!!
    Definitely a good purchase.

  • Elle Croft

    Oh, this dress is just DIVINE! Perfect for summer, and the pleats aren’t totally overwhelming. Love the look x

    I love this outfit, Becky! i think its my fave outfit of yours so far xxx

  • Moe

    Oh my this is lovely!! I love the print on that dress & the way you styled it. This is one of my favorite ways to see dresses styled: with brogues or loafers with socks. You still look fancy but you can walk around. I have a men’s pair that are just a bit too tight & need to find another pair

    Love it!

  • Rachel

    I absolutely love that dress. It’s gorgeous and you look so good in it.
    I also wish I could pull of brogues. I have to admit I’ve never actually tried any on but I think I’m just a little scared to do so… Hmm..

    lovely dress, I like the colours and the shape, really easy to wear.

    I think the shoes are so… british! maybe that’s why i love them so much :D
