How To Wear: Forest Green

Dress - Topshop
Shoes - Oh My Love
Bracelet - Primark

As my final post of my 'How To Wear' themed coursework for university, I've decided to embrace the fact that it's getting closer and closer to Christmas by showing you my latest purchase which will be making an appearance at work/Christmas nights out. 

Recently I read a trend report for the colour 'Forest Green', which is set to be a growing colour trend in the lead up to Christmas. It's no surprise that Topshop have caught on to this quick, tempting me into my latest purchase.

What I love about this dress is that it's really unusual! It's not only the colour that stands out but the different layers on the dress make it quite eye-catching and unique. It sort of looks like a separate crop top and skirt which is joined together by a black mesh, exposed at the back as the fabric splits in two showing the gold zip. 

Due to the high neck and lace fabric, I've kept the jewellery to a minimum with a simple gold bracelet as the dress is already quite intricate and detailed. I've added simple black platforms and worn my hair up as I think this shows the neckline and detailing of the dress better. 

Hope you've enjoyed reading my 'How To Wear' themed project and haven't been too bored of my constant posts!
