The Burgundy Dress With Suspender Style Tights


(Dress – Exact, Tights – Exact, Shoes – Similar, Bag – Exact, Watch – Exact)

This outfit is a little different to something that I usually wear, but when it comes to fashion, I often like trying out different things and pushing my boundaries a little bit. I got to choose this gorgeous dress from WalG to style and I love it! It’s identical to my longer white and red maxi dress from them, but in a shorter version! It’s really flattering to an hourglass figure because of the cross over at the chest and nipped in waist with a tie. I adore it and can’t wait to wear it more often!

I bought these lovely Pretty Polly Suspender Tights on ASOS last week as I had always been a fan of them, but never bought them as I thought they were a bit too much for me. I’m glad I purchased them though because I love them! They are the hold you in tights too, so they slim you all over and are really well made. I think they just add that little bit of extra quirk to the outfit actually! I’m planning on wearing these with denim shorts as well, I think that could work!

For my shoes, I just opted for my Topshop Black Heels to keep with the black theme and then wore my Balenciaga Mini City Bag in Black Suede too. Burgundy and black has always been a favourite combination of mine. For the accessories, I chose my Bacarat Crystal Necklace, my Michael Kors Slim Runway Watch and a Butler & Wilson Bracelet. The other 2 blue bracelets are just some random pretty ones I bought online and got matching ones for my nan! What do you think of the outfit? Let me know!

    I think the colour and shape of this necklace really suits the name of this blog. Raindrops of Sapphire is now Necklaces of Sapphire! Lol. Wow, these tights need loads of courage to wear, still I love em! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love those tights on you! You should definitely try them with shorts and do a grunge/punk kind of look with combat boots, a plaid shirt and lots of dark eyeliner–you will look amazing!

    I seem to recall an earlier post where you said that tight weren’t really your thing.
    That’s a crying shame, because you have the legs and the figure to look absolutely gorgeous in tights.
    FFF = Flirty Feminine and Flattering.
    From a guy’s point of view, I’ll have to admit that I find this look so sexy – And I can’t wait to see
    you in the promised shorts+tight outfit. Wow !!
    However, this look seems to me to lack a little bit of cohesiveness. It’s as if your light skin tone struggles to match the deep colors of the dress and the tights, resulting in a somewhat ‘cold’ look.
    But that’s just a minor point, Lorna. You’re still as stunning as ever.

      I am very pale, I’m almost completely white lol. Usually black and burgundy is fine on me, but it’s possible it could be the lighting. It was really sunny when shooting these photos and I was appearing a lot whiter than I actually am, so the colours aren’t quite accurate. I had to add a bit of black and up the contrast to get my skin to look fairly normal, but that darkens the dress too. I’m not usually a fan of tights as they are mainly itchy, but these ones aren’t, so that’s a bonus!
