STYLE ADVICE: I’m looking for a great evening dress under £40 – I love this one worn by Kristen Stewart…

Posted on: January 14, 2013

QUESTION: I’ve been invited to go to an army dinner, with a dance afterwards. Its formal, but not ball gown formal, I’m looking for a dress that is age appropriate (22), respectful but also glam, feminine with a hint ( and I mean a hint) of sexy. The dress should cover cleavage and be somewhere between short and knee length. My budget would be hopefully below 40 pounds but if something is really nice I might be able to go over. I like sheer at the moment like this: kristen-stewart-toronto-film-festival-on-the-road-premiere__oPt

I love the way the floral covers everything. My skin on my chest and back isn’t the best at the minute as sometimes acne flares up but I’m probably the only one who notices it but all the same I like to keep covered but sheer is spot on for that.

ANSWER: Your evening sounds perfect for getting glammed up and feeling your best. You should be familiar with your Dressipi Fashion Fingerprint by now, so here are some recommendations we hope you like:

1. Miss Selfridge dress, £32: – this gorgeous applique tulip dress in black is a very similar style to the Kristen Stewart dress that you love. The sheer material around the top with the extra detailing is perfect for covering up your chest and back, and the fit is not to restrictive once you’ve had that tasty dinner. Keep accessories to a minimum and let the dress do the talking.


2. Dorothy Perkins dress, £30: – this metallic black dress has the sheer detailing you love, as well as a great shape to show of your waist; and the slightly heavier fabric means it is perfect for the winter months. Team the dress with some simple courts and metallic accessories to bring out the sparkle.


4. River Island dress, £84: – although this skater dress is a little above your budget, it would look gorgeous on you. The beading embellishment gives it that wow factor you’re always looking for and covers both ‘glam’ and ‘respectful’ in your wish list. As the skirt is loose, it also means you have more room for dessert! We hope you love your suggestions and have a wonderful evening. Rea x
