United Colors of Benetton or UCB for short has always been one of my favorite high street brands. In fact, my mom bought me my first hoodie from there & it was the perfect blend of style & comfort, I wore it so much on cold winter mornings!
As part of the POPxo Blog Network I recently had the chance to to style some pieces from their Autumn Winter collection. There was a lot to choose from- dresses & knits with fun prints not to mention their signature denims. I also loved the wide range of bags & clutches they had as well as canvas smoking slippers in almost every color. I was a jeans & tshirt girl for years, although I can never stay long without a good pair of skinnies I find myself wearing dresses all the time. So I put together two looks featuring UCB dresses.

If there’s one trend I can never get enough it’s anything nautical. UCB had a few things with anchor motifs on them but I finally settled on this breton stripe dress (because I have a million breton tops). I kept the look very minimal with a pop of red, it felt like something Audrey Tatou or Brigitte Bardot would wear on a lunch date or picnic.

For my second look from UCB I chose this silky abstract print shift dress & paired it with flat sandals. To me it’s the perfect evening / party look that enables you to stay comfortable too. The print on the dress is quite bold so I opted to keep accessories to the bare minimum, with a bold lip of course!
I loved the United Colors of Benetton AW 2015 collection because it had a lot of variety; was fashion forward & yet really comfortable. From basics to prints, they had it all! It was a lot of fun styling these two looks, which one did you like better? x
