A Review Of The Scarlett & Jo Floral Prom Dress

5 Jul

Since I first laid eyes on the Scarlett & Jo collection at Evans I have been in love. They make well priced fun funky garments that have suited ladies of so many sizes, shapes and ages. They run from sizes 14-26 at present, and so fingers crossed they go up to a 32 in the very near future.

I recently spied this gorgeous sheer yoke print dress in an Evans store, and I shockingly adored it! Shocking because I’m not a fan of pinks and purples, but you can see why…
And so imagine my joy when Lucy from Scarlett and Jo was kind enough to send me the dress in a size 16.


This dress has no stretch too it, and so the 16 was a snug fit across the chest.


The mesh panel at the top of the dress does of course show my bra straps off, but not in an obvious way.


The dress comes with a tie up sash to help cinch it in at the waist. I will no doubt add my own belt, but I did like the dress as it was.


The cute V neck back made it easy to zip up on my own AND was rather flattering.


The dress comes with a silky underskirt that helps give it a bit of flounce and body. Not so much that the dress is comical, just enough!


The dress is a perfect length for me. It hits me right on the knee, showing off my slimmer lower legs.


Sleeveless dresses are something I do usually have to modify with a bolero or cardi, and this will look great with a variety of colours – pink, purple, black, silver. I can see it working well for a wedding with some shoes to match the bolero. It will also make a great party dress, or something to wear on a casual summer’s day.

You can see what Hanna from ‘The Wardrobe Challenge’ thought of the dress here – you will have to agree, it looks sublime on her!

What do you think of Scarlett & Jo’s range for Evans? Have you tried any pieces or would you like to?

    I reckon that you look better in shorter dresses than longer ones. I hope I didn’t offend by saying this! I’d like to see you wear a dress that hits a bit above the knee, you’ve got a great figure for it and it makes you look younger. 🙂 Once again, not trying to offend or anything – you don’t look bad at all in longer dresses!

    I have to say, i’ve never ever shopped in Evans, however they seem to be getting VERY fashionable, so might have to have a look in!

    I wouldn’t put a bolero or cardigan over this dress unless it’s a cold day. It looks great on you just as it is. I think the straps on the shoes tie into the straps on the bra, and make the bra straps look more intentional. Another good find! You make me want to fly to the UK just to shop. 😉
