This style solutions post is all about multi-function dressing and hiding problem areas. A mum of two recently contacted cocomama for some ideas…
I have several events to attend over the next few months and need a dress that I can ideally wear to them all but change its look each time. I like my figure on the whole and I’m happy to show my legs but I’m conscious of my arms so I’d prefer a longer sleeve.

- Keep your multi-wear dress simple so it can be teamed with a variety of colours, patterns and accessories
- Navy is flattering on most women and as it’s softer than black it’s great for all occasions.
- A higher neckline like this is great for enhancing a smaller bust. If you’re bigger break up the area with a longer necklace.
- Choosing one bright colour to accessorise with will make a chic statement.
- Clashing colours like pink and orange will add interest to a simple dress.
- Metallics will add a bit of glitz to elevate a dress for evening wear.
- Nudes or pastels and pearls will add a ladylike edge, while earthy tones like orange and khaki with tribal or aztec prints will add a modern twist to a classic dress.
- Add white or cream accessories for the perfect wedding guest look.
