I am totally, utterly head over heels for Dim Light. To finally own it after admiring right from when I was first getting into this fashion is such a great feeling.
I love the print, I love the cut, I love the fabric, I love everything about it! So of course, I have some flat lay coordinates to share.
This first outfit is what initially came to my head when thinking how I might coordinate it. What I love is that it’s fairly straightforward, but still detailed and a little bit extravagant. However, this is also an outfit I feel would look heaps better on as then you’d get the full effect of the billowy sleeves; and in flat lay I had trouble making the blouse lay correctly, as it has a neckline ruffle which in this outfit I’d just tuck under the JSK straps and neckline.
To be honest, I only had that single idea leap into mind as a coordinate, so for my next outfit I ran with a trusty classic brown combination. And I actually really, really like it. You can’t really tone down this JSK but this to look to me takes it in a bit more of a simply elegant direction, rather than the in-your-face drama that you can do with this cut!
For the third and final outfit I was literally putting the dress against different blouses in my wardrobe and found that this one matched the colours in the print really well. And I thought to myself; it’s such a sweet blouse, with such a dramatic classic dress, it won’t work. But I decided I’d give it a shot and came up with my favourite coordination of Dim Light so far! Call me out in the comments if you don’t think it works, but I do! Honestly, when you hide the chest ruffles of this blouse it’s not too overtly sweet, so there’s no style contrast there. And this is just such a pretty outfit!
As a final note – I love the detachable pieces. For outfit one, both the cape and chest bow were attached; for outfit two, just the bow; and for outfit three anything I could remove I did. And I enjoyed that versatility!
