Last week, one of my favourite brands, BangoMango, were kind enough to send me this beautiful dress to review! I've always loved BangoMango, not only for their super affordable prices, but also for the fact that they stock some pretty edgy stuff that's often bang on trend at the same time.

What I love about this dress is that it's the perfect casual dress that can easily be transformed from a day dress into an evening outfit. It's really cute, and the way the black shoulders contrast against the maroon material of the dress makes it just that little bit different. The weather has been a tad temperamental lately, and the day I wore this out and about doing general chores, it was gloomy and on the verge of raining. So I decided to pair the dress with a pair of thick, black tights and some chunky brown boots. To style the outfit up a little, I added my favourite trusty old brown belt, and this beautiful dog tooth necklace I received from Made at Bloggers Fashion Week.
Furthermore, this dress is a loose cotton fit, meaning that no matter what size you are you can carry it off. I added a belt to clinch it in a little, but it's relaxed fit means it's really comfortable and isn't too tight. Yet, at the same time, even without a belt it shows off my body and curves well, without being too baggy or overbearing me, making me look bigger then I actually am.
What do you think? How would you have styled this particular look? Let me know with a comment!
Also, please excuse my wall, I'm in the middle of creating a 'photo wall', so have a bunch of photos stuck to the wall in the corner and that's all at the moment...I know it looks messy!
