Bright New Things: Styled By Coast


Last week I attended a mini-styling session with Coast and a host of gorgeous bloggers including pals Sherin, Ree and Monica to check out the brand’s high summer collection and I got to try on some amazing dresses.

I have to be honest I haven’t shopped in Coast before and I have not got a reason why not after visiting their flagship store, which is not only decorated beautifully but the collections are incredible. If you are attending any weddings, garden parties, cocktail bashes, or even a night out at a fancy restaurant you need to check out Coast’s gorgeous dresses. Whether you are into florals, love embellishments, ethereal styles, or prefer something more dramatic, I think you will be surprised by the choice.

The event was a lot of fun, I got to wander around the store gushing over all the pieces I adored, I got my hair and make-up done, and the best bit was being styled by Coast’s Oxford Street stylist Marie, who picked out two gorgeous looks for me.


The first was a bright pink duchess satin ‘Chancey’ cocktail dress, which is super flattering thanks to the placement of the statement floral print, and it looked perfect styled with purple accessories including the ‘Lana’ shoe with its gorgeous one-sided bow and ruffled ‘Charlie’ clutch. What I love about this dress has to be the gorgeous detailing to the back – so different.

Keeping with the purple accessories, I changed into another floral dress, this time the elegant ‘Amelie’ print fit and flare style dress, which was teamed with a bright yellow skinny belt to cinch in my waist. More of a grown-up look, I really love the silhouette of this dress and I think it would work perfectly at a summer wedding.

Out of the two looks it is hard to choose my favourite, I loved both, mainly because they are two dresses that I wouldn’t normally wear because of the large floral prints. Also looking back on the look I really need to add more purple into my wardrobe as I really do love the contrast these accessories bring.

But as always at events like this I do love seeing what all the other bloggers wear and two looks I adore were Really Ree’s cool monochrome look and Hi Fashion Sherin’s pink textured ‘Edwina’ dress.

Have you checked out Coast’s latest collection? And do you like what the stylist dressed me in?
