Fever Three Ways

At the moment, when the weather can't decide between sunshine, rain, fog, balmy temperatures or getting pretty chilly at night, versatile is the name of the game for my wardrobe choices.  Along with that, I have a chest of drawers that's fit to bursting, a wardrobe that's so jammed full of dresses it's a military operation just to get one out, and now a 'bed-drobe' - the bed in the spare room which is permanently covered in clothes that won't fit anywhere else.  To save space, I really need to make more sensible choices about the items of clothing that I buy, so that I don't end up with things I can really only wear with one other thing I own, or a drawer full of things I only really feel comfortable wearing on holiday.

This is why the Fever London challenge appealed to me.  One dress, styled three ways - workwear, daytime wear, and evening wear.  I already own a Fever skater style dress and one of their tea dresses and I find myself wearing them to summer barbecues with bare legs, and then throwing on a pair of tights to wear them to work, so I knew they were the sort of brand that I could style a variety of ways (and get that dress working hard, rather than the other lazy ones in my wardrobe that only make it out once a year!)  I chose the Starlight Metallic Prom Dress (£99*) as I thought it was smart enough for workwear and occasionwear, but could be dressed down for during the day (and also because it's an absolutely beautiful dress....)

As sad as it sounds, getting older I've realised that it is helpful to have items of clothing that you can wear to work as well as outside of the office (depending on your workplace dress code of course).  For the 'City' theme (workwear), I chose to team the dress with a black blazer, nude tights and court shoes.  (I had to wear thick nude tights on this day as I fell over and have bruised all my legs and knees!)

tights: primark {instore} // shoes: clarks {old} // bag: kate spade {bought at outlet}


The second look was to fit with their theme of 'heritage', or daywear.  Making a full-skirted 'prom dress' casual I thought would be quite tricky, but actually the summer-y colours made it perfect for adding a light coloured jacket and my Converse wedges.  I love wearing white Converse in the summer, so easy to throw on!

The final theme was 'occasion' - or evening dresses.  I tried to think about how I would style this dress for a summer wedding; I thought it would be perfect with a pastel blazer, nude peep toes and a clutch.  I opted for bare legs for this one so you'll have to excuse my two little milk bottles! Probably ought to dig out the fake tan....

I had loads of fun styling this dress, and I think - I hope from the three outfits I've picked that you;ll agree it's a pretty versatile little number! Thankyou to Fever for creating such a fun challenge! Fever are also running a competition at the moment where you can win £100 Fever gift voucher for posting a photo of you #wearingfever on Twitter, instagram or their Facebook and using the hashtag (deets on that linked page).

Which is your favourite of the three styles? I think the wedding outfit has won me over personally, though I know from experience that those shoes don't last long without having to be swapped for flats!

  3. I'm digging the third look most, i think it's the colour of the jacket (maybe against the white walls?) that's winning.
