Rose Queen? Everything’s coming up roses? Rose parade? Just rosy? Violets are blue? The vast amount of cliches and quotes about roses just goes to show how the flower has truly stood the test of time. Rose prints can be outdated, as in”old lady-ish, or they can be classic and feminine, like in this rose print skater dress from H&M.
I found this dress during an H&M sale. I’m trying to dress more professionally at work, which means longer dresses and less cleavage, while still showing off my figure. This tank dress definitely fits the bill. It’s long enough to be appropriate, but the tank top cut means you won’t be overheating in a stuffy office.
The skater skirt is a great way to both show off a small waist and avoid a tight, body-con fit. And the neckline is high enough to be appropriate for the office.
I paired this dress with my favorite brown flatforms from Payless Shoesource. Yes, people, flatforms are back! Whether you’re going for flatforms, flat birkenstocks or a mix of the above, this 70s style is so old it’s new again.
Because the print is so busy, I kept jewelry simple with this beige and gold rope/chain bracelet from Ettika. The Celebutante bracelet comes in dozens of super-bright and beautiful colors, but these colors go with everything.
