Dark Shades for Summer - A New Look Inspire Review

A few weeks ago New Look Inspire were kind enough to send me this lovely maxi dress. As affordable, plus size fashion goes New Look Inspire seems to be doing so well for 2015. Of course, as ever I wish they would do more above a size 26 but I have talked about that before, so I won't rant again.

To be honest with you, I wouldn't often think of black for summer - but then it's not a colour I wear very much at all. However, I do love this look and think it's great for a bit of coverage in the warmer weather. I'm wearing the Inspire Black Jersey Bardot Neck Maxi Dress in a size 28 and it fits great. 

I do love a maxi dress for summer - they are so easy to just throw on and know that you are going to spend the whole day feeling cool and comfortable. The arms/sleeves on this can be worn in different ways too.

I styled this quite simply on this day, because it was just for a day out around the shops. However, I can see it with neon accessories and cute shoes to brighten up the colour a bit too!

Do you have any New Look bits in your wardrobe? What are your faves?

I was lucky enough to be gifted some items in this post and I am very grateful, but I am always open and honest in my reviews!


  1. I really love this on you. It's very simple, but that means you can have heaps of fun accessorising it in lots of different colours! It looks like a good length too, which is always important with maxi dresses. Great review xxx

  2. I really like the fact that you've shown this worn with the sleeves the 'regular' way. I've been put off by bardot styles by the lack of options. I don't much fancy flashing my underwear, plus I'd be constantly wanting to hike the sleeves up whether I could or not so to know that you can easily on this dress is a big bonus :)
