Rhiannon Duffin is a Stylist and Fashion Journalist. Her blog, LifeNStyle, has featured in numerous magazines including Elle and Stylist. Rhiannon is also one of QVC's on air stylists and is currently the featured guest for Casual & Co fashion.
Rhiannon will be joining us in the studio on 25th June as Casual & Co present a fab fashion set Today's Special Value offer, so in advance we set her a challenge to test her style credentials: a blind styling.
We put a package in the post containing one of our summer fashion favourites, but didn't tell Rhiannon anything about what she would find inside. How would she get on?
"When it comes to summer there’s only one wardrobe essential for convenience, comfort and style; the maxi dress. So, as you can imagine, I was thrilled when I opened the package to find one!
"There is something so romantic and appealing about a good maxi. They’re perfect for beach, day and eveningwear, and will keep you wonderfully cool in hotter weather. Whether you prefer a floaty bohemian vibe or choose to opt for city chic, the maxi dress provides the perfect option for making your very own style statement.
"This Casual & Co maxi dress is great for every size and shape. The tie-die affect has a fabulous contrast animal print near the hem of the dress and is available in two tonal colour options; red and blue. It features a flattering V-neckline at the front with overlapping layers on the bust, an elasticated smocked back for comfort and sleeveless styling.
"Embracing the fringed trend, Casual & Co have added this detail to the front of the dress which drapes down the front panel skirt, it is also used horizontally to create a crotchet pattern and tie.
"Simply style this Casual & Co maxi dress by layering your look with a simple denim jacket; as you can see, this dress can be accessorised easily to hit the pool, beach or BBQ in style.
"And, by adding jewellery, wedged heels and a statement lipstain, this dress can carry you through into the evening too.
"Flowy, floor-grazing dresses are yet again making a huge comeback this summer – will you be embracing the maxi look?"
