At the beginning of the week I first wrote about Dove Invisible Dry ‘little colourful dress’ challenge which promotes choosing more colourful outfits to get your more cheerful, confident and happy whilst still being protected from any sweat patches or white marks - you can read about it here.

This time I am sharing with you another colourful dress from Topshop paired with the cutest Carrie Bradshaw-inspired heels from Office - I just can't get over how cute they are! This dress option is a little bit safer for those who do not like to play with colour and prefer to stay on the safer, muted side, but still inject a little bit of cheerful hues into their attire. The mixture of orange and blue stripes works so well together and I love the cut of this dress too! I feel amazing in it and it's simply makes me happy and energised. Dove Invisible Dry deodorant also keeps me safe from white marksand sweat patches.

As promised, I have few more tips from Dove experts:
"Confidence is the key with colour, step out of your comfort zone when out shopping and try on as many different colours as you can. Think of it as a fun mission and take into the changing room as many bright items as you can find on the shop floor. Tell yourself you are only trying them on, that will take away expectation of trying to find that perfect ‘something’ and also help you to feel in control with your shopping.  You will know instinctively which hues work on you and which don’t. You will notice when wearing colour how it instantly evens out skin tone, enhances your features and lifts your mood.
- Alex Longmore, fashion stylist 

"Yellow is a bright and vibrant colour which can make you feel happy and cheerful. A yellow notebook/journal helps with focusing on a goal, retaining information or decision-making. 

Red is a bold colour that motivates and inspires you to take action. Red is great to place on a vision board if you need energy to tackle your goals. Red can also be used if you need a confidence boost.

Orange is an energetic colour which is useful when maintaining a positive outlook on life. Orange helps with social communication so bring your orange clipboard if you need enthusiasm when presenting an idea to others."

Dove Invisible Dry ‘little colourful dress’ challenge Part 1


To celebrate Dove Invisible Dry deodorant, which leaves no white marks on over 100 colours, Dove is on a mission to get women more colour confident – specifically by embracing the ‘LCD’, or ‘little colourful dress’ code – which means you can be colourful, stylish and still look good and feel confident whatever the occasion or time of day! I personally love wearing colourful clothes – especially in the summer! I love monochrome stripes and classic black dresses and cigarette trousers to emulate Parisian chic, but whenever I’m injecting some colour injection into my everyday attire I instantly feel more cheerful and happy. 

I’ve chosen this electric blue dress from Topshop for my recent date night aka dinner and the movie and it was both stylish and kept me cool in the recent heatwave. Thanks to Dove Invisible Dry deodorant I also didn’t have to worry about any white marks or dreaded sweat patches – not attractive to say the least! I personally love this shade of blue, it’s so flattering and gives me instant mood and confidence boost.

If you are a little nervous about embracing colourful hues, here are some tips from Dove experts to help you make this first step and get you out of the comfort zone:

“For those of you that are seriously nervous about dressing colourfully, then I suggest starting your colourful change slowly and first investing with an accessory such as a bright handbag, pair of shoes or a scarf. This is a great way to inject colour into your wardrobe, plus it’s fun for summer and colour always get compliments. A little colour goes a long way so it will instantly brighten your outfit and you will feel the colourful benefits without a complete wardrobe overhaul. 

Colour can be more empowering to wear than dark tones. We often think of black as a ‘forgiving colour’ and that it ‘hides a multitude of sins’ but this couldn’t be further from the truth. It can make us look drained, can dull our complexion and certainly isn't feminine or good for our confidence. Colour is great for all occasions be it a special event or something eye-catching for your work wardrobe and nothing beats a little colourful dress to make a statement of confidence; overall we give a much better impression to others when we embrace colour.“  
- Alex Longmore, fashion stylist

“Purple is a creative colour which is good for inspiration. Purple helps to get your creative juices flowing so the next time you are brainstorming be sure to use a purple pen.

Pink is a soothing colour which evokes calm feelings and is also great for stress relief. Pink can be used for reassurance and to rebalance emotional distress order pink flowers for the office when you have several deadlines.”
 
- Natalie Thomas, confidence coach
