I'm not going to entitle this blog post "Two ways to wear a skater dress" because I'm sure you're all more than capable of dressing yourselves by now and can do it perfectly well without my help. Should you require it, well, I tend to wear my dresses by, y'know, putting them on my body. Not exactly a novel technique but it serves me well.
Having said that, a plain black skater dress is undeniably a most useful thing to own. Et voila, worn here with my lovely green hedgehoggy jumper and Mel flats for a day at work.
Then glammed up a tad. If by glamming up, we mean wearing something that could conceivably be classed as either a boxing robe or dressing gown. I shall christen it the Kimono Coat. Kimoat? Comono? Nahhh.
It's reversible! Bit more boxing robe-ish when worn with the black outside...
I'll stick to it the other way round I think. Pretty! Not dressing gowny at all, honest.
Painty hair - occupational hazard at the moment

Hedgehog jumper - ASOS
