Dressed in Black... These two dresses inspire me for a beautiful night out. I love that both could be worn to dinner, or a cocktail party or even a night at the Opera. These dresses both incorporate splashes of deep red that catches the eye and emphasises form. The fact both outfits are structured to flow from under the bust also means they would suit almost any curvy figure. I always love these styles of dress and I think that Elena Miro has nailed them.
I love that the first dress's empire waist is accentuated with a deep red belt (which matches the lining of that stunning coat). The second, with its more structured/fitted top and A-line skirt just screams femininity - wow.
Dressed in DEEP Red...
This first outfit just gobsmacked me when I saw it and made me think that the curves Mark Fast was trying to find in his London show were on display here for Elena Miro. I can barely even find the words to describe how much I love this. The sweater completely defines these curves, and the way the collar sits completely flatters them. The belt, the gloves, the cut of the pant - literally blow me away and this entire look is elegant AND edgy. The second dress is really such a simple shape, but the execution by Elena Miro is tantamount to the sublime. Structured, eye-catching, beautiful.
Dressed in Beige...
I adore this first outfit for the same structural reasons I loved the first deep red outfit, above. Again, it is so easy to see classic elegance meeting edge. I have pulled this outfit as one of my favourites because of the design but also the fabric. I love the silkiness of the top teamed with that belt and pant. It just looks so classy and chic.
I have chosen the second dress specifically because it is flattering and flowy. Many of the dresses I own are similar in that they have a high waist and then flow easily from under that waist. While the bottom here doesn't look billowy, it looks a little less defined in structure and shape than the other dresses I have selected above, I love this dress because it will sit easily on curves and move a little in the winter wind.
And Finally, Details baby!
Before I finish out my Elena Miro posts - I just wanted to share a few more shots looking specifically at some of the details - these clothes are made for curves and the three main colours used; black, deep red and beige are absolutely stunning on these models. This collection looks so feminine but also exudes a type of modern elegance, it is classic but edgy. You know I love this!
