Dressing for The Season

It’s funny, the Urban Dictionary, not many words that you enter actually produce a meaning that as a grown adult you expect. Perhaps it’s a generational thing and if you were born in the 80s, the 80s {or earlier} you just don’t get it. Or should that be #geddit. Well pop in ‘Quality’ and after much Kevin~style teenage huffing the definition chucked out at you reads ~ Quality: describes something as very good. Erm, call us down with the kids or something, but hey, guys, you read our minds.

The first thing that we think of when we get our grubby fashion hungry mitts on something from L.K.Bennett is…. Quality. The urban meaning and the good ol’ Oxford Dictonary both concur. And blow us down with a feather they are right. Very Good.

See the thing about L.K.Bennett is that you know there is a bench mark: a standard that they always hit.

You only need to slip your foot into one of their shoes, or pop on an item of clothing and you just know there is a level workmanship. Obviously superior to other high street brands and yes that is reflected in the price point but rightly so we say. To purchase something doesn’t feel frivolous it feels like a great investment in a piece that will be loved and will last.

For this Summers event calendar The Season by L.K.Bennett offers up some subtle, pretty prints, eye catching colours and flattering fits. And that’s just the dresses. The accessories had us smiling from ear to ear once we caught sight of 3D cut work flowers, soft blush suede and gold twisted knot platforms. We mean gold and pink. Hello! So us.

We thought this monochromatic abstract print cami dress showed just enough flesh to keep it ladylike but a little cheeky, we belted it to cinch in at the waist and paired it with pale pinky accessories but equally a pop of colour would work wonders. Be {not so basic} with all black accessories too.

The retro silhouette of this silk dress did it for us, the royal blue ditsy print was just a bonus. Layer up with gold jewellery to match this gold clutch and these so good we wanna sleep in them gold platforms and flail arms accordingly to show off the bell sleeves.

Both dresses felt like a dream to wear and slipped on easily oozing quality from every well stitched seam {with over 12 years in the fashion biz specialising as dress designers, trust us WE KNOW} The accessories too felt like pieces you want to take care of and wear time and time again. We don’t know about you but that doesn’t happen nowadays too often. And once we stop harping on about the stupendous quality can we also mention the versatility?! Ok yes we can.

Of course these frocks look fab dressed up to be the best dressed guest at a wedding or the most demure lady at the races but don’t you think they would be fab after your event dressed down with flat sandals and denim jacket?! We do. The lightweight, natural fabrics make for the comfiest pieces so wear again in warm climates to dinner and drinks: perfect for sun~downer dates.

It’s pretty clear that The Season by L.K.Bennett is right up our {quality} street, so don’t get FOMO, get shopping.
