Work Wear #OOTD Featuring Ann Harvey*

Sometimes dressing for work can be a nightmare, In my line of work sometimes I need to be dressed to impress for a big meeting. Later in the day I need to be able to run about and film or run a session for young people. When Bonmarche asked if I would like to try something from the Ann Harvey range I had a look and to my surprise found just the dress that could do both. I have to admit that I hadn't really considered the range before as it seemed a little conservative for me but this dress proved me wrong.

You can currently snap up the Ann Harvey Baroque print dress* in the sale for just half the price as it is now only £22.50. I was drawn to the bold red print which gives the dress that extra glamorous feel and would brighten up any office.

I teamed it with some plain black heels (New look last season) and I like to wear leggings with my dresses but this is just a personal preference, If you really wanted to dress it up you can opt to go without.

I sized up to a size 22 expecting the material to be very clingy as I didn't want to feel uncomfortable but I could easily have worn my normal 20 as the sizing is very generous, The material had a lot of stretch and is fantastic quality. Due to being fully lined the material falls beautifully. Yes it will show off all those curves but without all those extra lumpy bits and if you are not a fan of Visible belly line then you can always wear this with shape wear, I have worn without because I felt so comfortable.

I am a big fan of the half sleeves which means the dress can be worn on it's own without an cardigan. A cute belted detail and the neckline is flattering without feeling like you are falling out of it. There is plenty of room in the bust area for ladies with extra boobage.

I loved the pattern so much I wanted to also see what it would look like more casually. So I tried it out with a cardigan and some flats. So for those of you who aren't sure about the bold patterns or flaunting the curves as much as me then you can really play it down and still look killer,

The cardigan I grabbed in the sales from Primark. A bargain at £10 with a little bit of bling on the collar. This makes the outfit more wearable for me day to day.

What do you wear to work? What do you think of the Ann Harvey baroque print dress?
