Please help me to style this dress so it doesn't look like a dressing gown.
I was doing some internet shopping (after a gin or two) the other night and bought this.
It ticks a lot of boxes for me (flattering v neck for bosom and wrap effect for not so flat tummy) but I awoke in the early hours when the gin was wearing off and feared that it might be a bit like a dressing gown.
Is there any way I could style it to help veer it away from looking like nightwear or am I just being paranoid?
Thanks drquin. It's a Twist & Tango dress currently in the sale at House of Fraser.
I will try a belt because that big old elasticated waistband is exactly what it is (so comfortable though ). It might glam it up a bit if I do that. I am also a tempted to take up the sleeves a teeny bit, maybe wear it with opaques and high heeled boots?
As long as I am not wearing furry slippers and carrying a mug of cocoa I hope it will look ok! Internet shopping while under the influence can be a bit dangerous
