Some clothes are all about movement and this dress falls into that category. It truly comes to life when you start walking in it or swirling for that matter as this dress will encourage you to do so.

It’s the dress I wore out on most evenings on my recent holiday to Sri Lanka and the Maldives with red accessories and red wedges as shown below.

This dress has a LOT of fabric so it is not for those who want to minimise their frame. Rather it adorns you with layers of beautifully printed fabric that makes you feel feminine and beautiful.

I love how some clothes encourage movement and how it enhances the overall design of a piece. Every silhouette it creates while moving is different and gorgeous.

Many clothes with movement will give you a lot of freedom. You don’t have to worry about that belly or the garment being tight anywhere. All there is, is free movement and comfort. A dress that combines this freedom of movement with a unique design that creates different interesting silhouettes and is still flattering enough is a win in my book!
