Following on from last weeks introduction post to Skandal here are a couple of dresses Woodie & Morris now have instore and online from this fab little Barca brand. I have to say I love the Skandal dresses as they are just perfect to chuck in your suitcase for summer. These two are just gorgeous and choosing a favourite was very hard to do!
First up is this cute coral linen dress which is sleeveless with little pocket detailing, this dress just slips on over the head. I am wearing a medium in this style as I’ve a bit of a ‘hippy’ vibe going on and have a bit of a ‘backside’ so wanted a bit of room (I normally take a UK size 10). This dress is also available in white, black and pale blue. It really is the perfect summer dress and the coral colour is beautiful.
Last summer I layered my cotton Skandal dress with my favoritie oversized denim shirt from Topshop as I’ve done in the picture above. The coral against the washed out denim just works and I find a denim shirt is a great summer coverup for when the sun goes down.
The Skandal bag is also pretty cool. The main body is made from a dip-dye linen similar to the vest tops I blogged about but it has a lovely soft leather handle and the handle can be adjusted so it can be worn across the body of just carried in the hand.
The second dress I tried is my favourite and the one I decided to keep from the selection of Skandal pieces Mel lent me to blog about. This little dress has a HOOD! This is another linen dress but with cotton capped sleeves and hood. Again this just slips on over the head and I went for a medium in this dress which fitted perfectly.
