What To Wear | Unique Festivals
ASOS dress here also available in navy here // Ecua – Andino Panama hat here
I mentioned in part one that I decided to move away from the stereotypical festival looks comprised of denim cut-offs, crop tops and flower crowns for this collaboration with ASOS. So, perhaps it’s no coincidence I chose another maxi dress for my second ‘what to wear’ look as it’s versatile, easy to wear and above all effortless.
The Unique Festival that I picked this outfit for is the Cherry Harmony festival organised by the South West community in Manjimup and celebrates the local area and the natural produce, cherries. Keeping that in mind, I thought this floral print maxi dress would be perfect for the long table luncheon hosted under the cherry trees.
This ASOS plunge tie front maxi dress with thigh split is a modern take on the classic maxi dress. The highly coveted cross neck trend is showing no sign of slowing down and I love how it adds a feminine and alluring slant to the dress revealing a hint of décolletage.
A full-length dress is easy to wear creating an undeniably feminine silhouette and the thigh high split adds a contemporary attitude. While the A-line skirt creates flattering curves elongating the body and nipping in the waist perfectly.
Now onto the beautiful print, there is no denying that my affinity with floral dresses has blossomed (pun intended) from a young age, there is something so saccharinely pretty and ultra-feminine about a floral motif. What attracted me to this particular dress is the contrasting blue background adorned with a nostalgic rose print design in soft hues of pink subtly complimented by richer rose and peach tones.
As with any piece fit and proportion is key and this dress is designed to emphasise the female form and crafted from a light weight fabric that feels silky soft on the body.
I accessorised with a flamboyant Ecua – Andino Lady Panama Very Large Brim hat, handmade especially for me. You might have seen my unboxing over on my snapchat here. The Ecuadorian Artisans, use the finest selection of natural fibres to hand weave each hat and the sheer quality is undeniable. I have been lusting after a genuine Panama hat for as long as I can remember and can’t wait to show you the classic style too. A hat is the perfect accessory to shade from the Australian sun not to mention it adds the finishing touches to this ladylike outfit.
I have recently adopted the maxi dress as my signature go to piece and wear them with delightful frequency as it really is one of the easiest garment’s to wear for any occasion.
This look is effortless, confident and undeniably easy to create yourself. Have you tried a maxi dress lately? I would love to hear from you over on my social media channels below.
