Swing dresses are really coming back into fashion at the minute. Their popularity stems most likely from their versatility and adaptability. It’s difficult to find an occasion for when a swing dress would be entirely inappropriate and everyone looks good in them! They are so easy to just chuck on when you’re in a rush and don’t want to have to put lots of effort into an outfit. This is probably why this dress was so well used whilst I was on holiday.
Do you know those days where you are going to be back and forth between the hotel pool and nipping out to the shop? Enter the swing dress. It is perfectly acceptable to have your bikini on under your dress so if any swimming related emergency pops up you are set and ready. One swift movement and you’ve gone from looking good and put together to ready for a quick dip. Who wouldn’t want the convenience?
The dress I have been wearing is from Jack Wills and honestly it is so old now! To show you how it has lasted the test of time, this dress was almost down to my ankles when I bought it and the waist band touched my body. Now the dress reaches to mid calf and is so big around the waist ( I was a bit of a chunk lol) and it is still a staple piece in my wardrobe.
I paired this dress with a pair of baby blue sandals that I bought from M&S during the sale and of course a wide brimmed straw hat. A holiday essential for everyone I assume! I loved the way this outfit looked and how comfy I felt in it. It really was perfect for lounging around when it was 37 degree heat.
