IN an ideal world we’d have a wardrobe full of fabulous dresses. That way we could just close our eyes, reach into our wardrobes, pull out a frock and head off to face the day looking and feeling great.
Life would be so much easier — and of course it would mean we could all stay in bed until the very last minute as valuable moments wouldn’t be wasted matching this with that.
Irish label Carraig Donn has lots of such dresses in their AW12 collection, one of which is pictured above.
They’ve used a super mix of fabrics — all designed to flatter the female shape and accentuate curves.
Ruching and draping is used very effectively for anyone looking to disguise any lumps or bumps.
Pattern is also used well — particularly season favourite, leopard print. There’s a wide choice suitable for day right through to evening. An office look can be dressed down easily with something like a simple blazer.
Shop the collection at the Cook Street, Douglas, MahonPoint and Ballincollig Shopping Centre stores and online now. See www. carraigdonn.com
