How to make florals and frills work on a night out

I’m trying to expand my going out section of my wardrobe quite a bit. If you read my blog, you’ll know I have so much love for bodycon dresses, and they’ve become my go to choice for nights out (read the post here!) However, Leeds isn’t really that dressy, so this outfit is just something a little bit different. The full outfit is from Miss Selfridge, and come to around £40. (This is only because of the student discount at the minute, and few other offers MS is currently running!) I’ve talked about winter florals and frills before, but I never imagined the trends would translate well into a night out look.

The mesh embroidered body is the right mix of pretty with a sexy edge. The embroidery is specifically placed to cover your nips. However I’m not really that brave, so I added a plain black bralet to the outfit to avoid any embarrassing accidents! This body would also look so good under a leather skirt or high waisted black skinnies. The bodycon skirt looks deceptively bad on the hanger. However once it’s on, it’s sooo flattering! (I swear it makes my legs look thinner!) The skirt is also very versatile. And would look great for cocktails, or dressed down with a jumper and ankle boots.
I felt a little self-conscious because it’s very different to anything I’d normally wear. But once I got over that feeling, I loved the look! But what do you think of the way I’ve styled this outfit? Let me know in the comments!
