Sweet Craftiness: Outfit of the Month

There's nothing we love more here at the world of Sweet Craftiness than an outfit that is comfortable and yet stylish. In these crisp Autumn days it can be very hard deciding on what to wear, but browsing through the latest La Redoute catalogue we were actually at a loss at what we should prioritise to buy. Luckily for my readers I have teamed up with La Redoute to review some of the latest fashion must-haves to see if they live up to how good they look in the catalogue.

Feast your eyes on this month's outfit of the week: (dress pictured above). Short-Sleeved Dress. I LOVE it; it's bang on trend and team it up with a lovely long cardigan and you will be stylish and cosy. It's a really figure flattering dress as it flows over the stomach gently and yet allows easy movement because it is not too long. It's a great length and with some black tights and the black biker boots you are ready to go. If you want to be extra warm you could even wear leggings with it. On warmer days this dress will also look great with a simple denim jacket.

If you want to go for a more fitted look and really want to accentuate your petite waist then a belt is a great option. A particularly nice belt to suit this dress is the 'Plaited Leather belt with studs' (pictured below) item no 8252530.

This is a gorgeous plaited leather belt with metal studs, available in brown or black. You could either go with brown belt and brown biker boots or black belt and black biker boots. This belt is probably one of La Redoute's bestsellers as the belt is actually featured in their TV adverts. It costs £35 but is versatile enough to go with many different outfits and the outstanding quality means that it will last some time.

The biker boots below are brilliant value! They are short biker boots which is the 'in-trend' this season! They are easy to get on and off quickly too as they simply slip on. These are part of their 'Mini-Price' range and so at £29.00 are very affordable. More importantly they are VERY comfortable and I have used them for dashing about on the school run several times. They really kept my feet nice and warm too. One thing I did notice about them is because of the 2.5cm heel they are quite noisy to walk about on but that is my only minor quibble.

Hope you have enjoyed this month's 'Outfit of the Month' and keep your eyes peeled for next month's treat for the eyes!
