APRIL & ALEX Statement Worthy Dresses

Good morning everyone, hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Today’s post is on statement worthy dresses. I think you all know by now how much I adore statement worthy tops, well, the same goes for dresses. With London Fashion week in full swing I wanted to share with you this look I wore for the April & Alex virtual show. So with this in mind I wanted to put together a few of my favourite statement worthy dresses. Take a scroll down and let me know what you think!




Let me give you a little insight into the brand, I first came across them back in 2019 and collaborated with them. My first dress from the brand is the Edgy Girl dress. Why not take a look at my post HERE. So if you didn’t already know, April & Alex is a London-based contemporary womenswear brand. It is owned by British/Nigerian Award-winning Journalist, Didi Akinyelure. The brand sets out to create bold and edgy, fashion-forward pieces for the empowered woman. I really can’t get enough of them, their pieces are like art to me!

Didi found her own unique style and love for bold, edgy fashion pieces in her teens. She launched her blog in 2011 and this led to the launch of her fashion brand in 2018. The brand has come a long way since its launch and I am not surprised as the pieces speak for themselves. The April & Alex woman is powerful, independent, effortlessly stylish, edgy, bold and fearless to name a few.


Right let me begin with the dress that I am wearing, The Power Dress. It is all about the statement sleeves with this dress. The sleeves come in red PVC and the body of the dress is in polyester. Such an eye catching dress, so when it came to styling the dress I opted for some black accessories in terms of shoes and bag. These open toe booties are a few years old but I still love to wear them. Next I opted for my red/aubergine coloured sunglasses from Poppy Lissiman. Of course these cat-eye sunglasses add to the drama of the sleeves. Finally completing my look with my Jacquemus mini black bag.






What do you think of the April & Alex pieces? Which one is your favourite? Do let me know by leaving a comment below.

    There’s something so unexpected and fabulous about these red PVC statement sleeves. The ideal outfit to wear at a virtual event because the top half if so visually strong – great choice Lovely! Have a great week, Xo

    I absolutely love this dress on you! Those statement sleeves are stunning!

    I am in love with those sleeves, and you are rocking this dress, Lovely. I find the bag silly (nothing personal), but I actually really love it with this dress, as its exaggerated proportion actually balances the sleeves.

    Your accessorizing is excellent – I forgot to mention the perfect leopard shoes on your coat-dress.

    I love the idea of a power dress! It’s feminine and bold at the same time. The one you are wearing is so unique and you wear it so well!
