Blue Skies - Jade Swing Dress from Collectif


Summer might be behind us, but that doesn't mean blue skies can't lie ahead. And this sale bargain dress from Collectif makes me feel like I'm floating on a fluffy cloud! I'd been in love with the Jade Swing Dresses ever since they'd previewed at London Edge, as anything with pockets gets my vote. But it was the cut of the dress which really caught my eye too, with the adjustable double shoulder straps and seamed bodice both major plus points.

The dress has a touch of the 50s about it thanks to it's gathered skirt and sweetheart neckline, but stays away from feeling costume like and fits into an everyday wardrobe with ease. The belt is a cute touch (although a bit of a squeeze in the larger sizes!), and it teams easily with a cropped cardigan or jacket for when you need to fight the chill.





Even with the warmer season coming to an end, I doubt this dress will stray too far into the depths of my wardrobe. It's such a classic style which could will be pulled out for those sort of social gatherings which you want to be on the smarter end of cute (but don't worry it'll have an iron run over it first!)

Until next time,

    1. Thank you lovely! :) Their AW range is AMAZING too! :) If you're ever in London again anytime soon, it's worth popping into one of stores to have a twirl. xx

    1. I'm large chested and a 22 / 24 and found the 22 was spot on. It also has adjustable straps which helps with the top half a little. The Dolores is probably their most generous in terms of fit, but this would definitely fit a small 24 / large 22. :) x
