Pauline Oversized Gingham Dress – Bright & Beautiful

If you didn’t already know, I am an absolute SUCKER for some gorgeous gingham. The beauty that is the Pauline Oversized Gingham Dress by Bright & Beautiful was the first addition of purple gingham to my wardrobe and I am very much a fan.

Bright & Beautiful by Collectif is influenced by the 60s and 70s, aiming to bring you all of the fun and colour but mixed with a modern twist. The Pauline dress is a 70s inspired swing dress that will have you swirling and twirling to show off her beauty.

A 50s gal at heart, I styled this with a 50s look in mind. It’s a gorgeous dress for spring and summer weather and a perfect partner for a picnic. The skirt was much fuller than I anticipated after viewing the product photos, but this was a welcomed discovery. I enjoyed the modest boat neckline and the somewhat cheeky scooping shape of the back. I also loved how much it tapered in at the waist.

This beauty is made from a textured linen blend (70% Cotton 30% Linen ) and only required a quick steam before she was ready for her first outing. The blend means this garment can be machine washed at 30 degrees which is handy too.

I’m wearing an XXS or a (UK 6) and it fit my measurements (32”-24”-32”) absolutely perfectly! Check out the Bright & Beautiful size chart to see what would best suit you. There isn’t any give/stretch in the fabric so do definitely use the chart as a guide when selecting your size The sizes range from UK 4 through to UK 18.
