One of this season’s most enduring and popular trends has been the Bardot neckline. Cool, chic, easy to wear, sophisticated and casual, it’s easy to see why it’s been so popular.
The Bardot dress is a simple way to wear this trend well, and the beauty of it is it can be worn in many different ways. We’re taking at look at the Bardot dress three ways.
We’ve styled this simple black Bardot dress from New Look (£24.99) in three very different ways. Which will you choose?
First up, a sort of hippy/. festival style. Take your Bardot dress in simple black and add some ethnic/rustic/aztec accessories. Pom pom sandals are on trend this season. Choose this pair from Schuh (£24.99, were £35), currently in the sale, as an on-trend bargain.
Add a fun feather headdress for a completely free look – this one is from New Look (£7.99). Simple round sunglasses work best with this look, these are from H&M for £7.99). Finally, an aztec print embellished cross-body bag from New Look (£22.99) completes the look
If a biker/rock chick style is more up your street, keep it all back with your Bardot dress, and add chunky accessories. A pair of Dr Marten’s start the look (£105, Schuh). Add cat’s eye sunglasses (£79, French Connection), and sling a fringed rucksack over your shoulder. We love this one from Faith @ Debenhams (£45).
Finally, slip on a biker jacket, and if you can’t stretch to leather, go or denim, or fake it with this one from H&M (£29.99).
if you fancy something more sophisticated, then introduce some movie star style to your Bardot dress. We love a bit of fashion theatre, so go for it, with a big bold floppy sunhat (£9.99, H&M), and bold white sunglasses (£16, Floozie by Frost French @ Debenhams).
Add a bit of animal print -a classic Hollywood favourite – in the shape of a clutch bag (£15, Star by Julien Macdonald @ Debenhams), and then clash your prints with these amazing aztec print heels (£tbc, Debenhams).
