Today is the third and final edition of my Durban July Style Guide series together with Forever New. This is exactly the series you need if you’re faced with the question of what to wear to the Durban July. If you’ve missed the last two looks of this series you can find the first one here and the second one here.
For today’s post I selected this gorgeous white dress with the most wonderful, geometric fabric (also loving this one). I think what I love most about this dress is that it provides the perfect amount of coverage to feel comfortable and yet it’s extremely sexy with it’s high slit and its plunging neckline. It is very feminine and sophisticated with a sprinkling of edge which I love. On me the length of the dress reached above my ankles (I’m 5’7) which I thought made it extremely practical for the Durban July because it won’t be trailing in the grass collecting dirt nor will I have to worry about people standing on it all day long. At this length I could wear a long dress without the admin of a long dress which is great because I think we’d all rather be focused on a great day with friends, sipping bubbly and watching the races. I love the look of this dress with strappy sandals think these or these would be absolutely perfect to finish off the outfit.
That concludes my Durban July Style Guide with Forever New. All three of the looks in this series are currently available in Forever New stores so hurry into stores to find your size before they’re all gone. Which of the three looks has been your favourite? I’d really love to know so please leave a comment in the section down below. Thank you so much for reading!
