One of the stars to emerge from the London 2012 Olympics has to be gold medal winner Jessica Ennis. She won practically every event, including the technical ones like long jump, and beat her competitors by miles. What a fantastic ambassador for Britain both on and off the sports field! As she was photographed celebrating her win at a party after the Olympics, she looked absolutely stunning in a skater dress.
This Teatro bow pencil dress is similar to Jessica’s . I especially like the belt to pull you in at the waist and further enhance the impression of an hourglass shape. The Love Label fit and flare skater dress below is equally feminine and flattering if you’re inspired by Miss Ennis’s winning style.
Now the eyes of the world are on her, Jessica needs to pick her dresses carefully because you can guarantee that there will be flashbulbs wherever the golden girl goes. She may have been living in tracksuits while training but now it’s time to glam up! This could be one of the reasons she chose a skater dress style, which is flattering for most women’s figures. Skater dresses are great for pear-shapes as they skim over the hips and thighs. A pink dress is ideal for bringing out a tan and making you appear more radiant and summery.
While we’re on the subject of skater dresses, the Jameela Jamil Jersey Skater Dress is also in my top three. I love the burnt orange colour, which will take us all through summer and into autumn.
If you’re wearing a classic, simple style of dress then you need to keep your footwear understated too. The Love Label point platform shoes are amazing as they give you some height and make you walk taller but they don’t take attention away from your dress. You could wear them with practically anything.
To complete Jessica’s look all you need is a watch. You may not need it for running, but if you set the stopwatch you can guarantee it won’t be long before you start getting compliments. The Love Label multi chain strap watch is perfect as it has just the right amount of sparkles. It’s not too showy, but it definitely signals that the wearer has put some effort into their appearance.
Whether you’re good at sport or not, this is an award winning outfit!
