The Butterfly Effect – A Pink Clove Review

When it comes to dress shopping we all have different things that we look for. In my case I tend to buy for different occasions or events. It’s no secret that I love 50s swing dresses but I have also grown to love bodycon dresses, and when I saw the Butterfly Print Dress With Contrast Panels from Pink Clove I instantly knew I had to buy it!

A personal challenge of mine from last year was to experiment more with colours and bold prints and the fact that this one has both beautiful bright colours and a bold print made it a must have for me. As soon as I saw the photos on the website I thought about taking this one out on the town for a hot club night.

The kaleidoscopic pattern of pink, purple and silver colouring is so interesting and makes for a really fun and fresh panel on a simple black dress. The material is very figure hugging and clings to all your curves. 96% polyester and 4% elastane there is a fair amount of stretch in this one but in my case I know it would look just that little bit better on if I wore a slip or shapewear underneath. In these pictures I am wearing a pair of high wasted Bridget Jones knickers underneath. Depending on the fit you want to achieve you may wish to go up a size if you prefer your dresses to just skim you rather than to cling. I picked this up in a size 22.

Even though the dress is what I would call loud you can dress it down if you want to. I decided to pair this one with a simple black cardigan, think black leggings and my black platform heels to give it more of a casual look.

When first got the dress in the post I did an initial try on without any shapewear and I liked the overall look

I look forward to sporting this one in a club soon and I’ll most likely wear it with black tights, heels and plenty of silver accessories! You could even take it to another level by wearing acrylic jewellery in pinks and purples and wearing some patent colour shoes or something if you really want to be bold. The bright print means that this is one that could be worn pretty much any time of the year and with spring and summer around the corner I’m sure I’ll be taking it out in the sunshine.
