To give their members just what they deserved, the company provided them with an extra special treat. Each of them got to pick and keep a Scarlett & Jo dress of their choice. All club members were gifted by Scarlett & Jo with the opportunity to take part in a photoshoot in their chosen Scarlett and Jo dress! The photographer, Diana, was extremely helpful and Scarlett & Jo are very thankful to her. The stunning photos she took appeared on both the company’s website and social media platforms.

The Origins of a Diva and her Diva Dresses

She’s fierce, untouchable, and the ultimate icon. A fashion diva is something we all aspire to become. She emulates style in its purest form because she strides through life with her big, confident personality and doesn’t let others influence who she is or who she wants to be. By she, we mean it’s all about her persona.

Throughout history, the meaning of diva has evolved a lot. From meaning an ungrateful, famous person to the ultimate fashion icon out there. The word originates from the Latin word ‘divus’ meaning goddess, and the Italian noun ‘divas’ meaning a female deity. In 2017 the most common meaning of ‘diva’ is a person who will always try to achieve anything they wish too, doing it with class and style. We’ve seen so many amazing, divas throughout the past few decades which include icons such as Marylin Monroe, Beyoncé and Annie Lennox. The modern usage of the word ‘diva’ came from Annie Lennox in 1992 when she released her album named Divas. Ever since then, the personification of diva has been explored by so many celebrities and influencers.

Exploring the Ultimate Divas

Marylin Monroe is possibly the most original diva in fashion history. Not only did she start the curvy revolution in the 1960’s but she set trends and standards that hardly any other diva has been able to live up too. Her dresses and outfits throughout her career were definitely too diva for anyone to handle these days. Tight, short dresses that showed off her luscious figure – her style changed fashion. From perfectly white dresses to bright pink feather bowers, anything that was fit for a diva catwalk was suitable. Dressing like a diva has never been easy but some icons have levelled Marylin Monroe, such as Beyoncé.

Beyoncé is the definition of diva. If you ever hear someone say; what is a diva? Your answer should always be Queen Bey. It’s not just her confident, out-going personality either. It’s her whole aura that comes across in her public appearances as well as her music. She always looks amazing on the diva catwalk and red-carpet events and isn’t afraid to be adventurous with her outfits. Some might argue she is even more of a fashion diva than Marylin Monroe herself, but we shouldn’t make any quick assumptions.

Expressing Yourself Like a True Diva

If you’re up for the challenge of becoming a diva, in the truest form, then you need to make sure you express yourself in the right way. It won’t come easy but if you can pull it off then you’re in luck. Whether you love wearing statement jewellery with a jumpsuit, or you’re more a jeans and crop top girl. There are so many ways you can express yourself to be a diva. The main accessory you need is a diva dress, and we aren’t just talking a dress that you can wear daily. Diva dresses are the best, and probably the only way to truly express your inner diva. Yet, you might be asking, what are diva dresses? That’s where the fun begins…

Diva dresses are essentially the type of dresses we always look at in a store or online and think we can’t wear because we don’t have the figure for it. We think we can’t pull them off because we aren’t cool enough, the truth is, any true diva can with the right attitude. Low-cut dresses are ideal as they show off that you have a riskier side, whilst open-back dresses are a personal favourite.

Open-back dresses have been a trend for quite a while and they have so many different styles to choose from. They all look amazing though, so don’t worry if you think your style isn’t diva enough, it most likely is. You’ve just got to know how to express your inner diva to the fullest. Off-the-shoulders scream that you’re an elegant, yet stylish lady. Noticed how we said, lady? That’s exactly how you should be presenting yourself. These dresses are probably one of the best diva dresses you’ll come across because they can make you feel so confident and incredible. Diva dresses should convey a sexy, yet sophisticated sense of style. If you’ve ever heard of the Jessica Wright dresses then you’ll know what we are talking about, they’re possibly the best type of diva dress.

Picking Your Perfect Diva Dress

Picking your perfect diva dress can be hard, being a diva anyway isn’t easy. As long as you know what you’re looking for, and your price range is set then you should just be able to go off and get the perfect dress. However, if you’ve ever been in that situation then you’ll know it’s not as easy as that. If you’re looking for a diva dress then definitely look at the three diva styles mentioned above, colours are another hurdle to jump too. The ideal diva dress is most likely a dark, mysterious colour, however, colours like white and bright yellow work too.

The sexiest dress of all would probably be a low-cut, red dress – possibly the diva dress of all diva dresses. Red is the trend of the Autum/Winter of 2017, so not only will you look amazing. You’ll be the ultimate fashion icon – which is the point of diva dresses, right?

The best advice you can get for picking a dress that is perfect for you is to know your best assets and know how to show them off. If you love your stomach and how toned it is, then a tight, bodycon diva dress might be your way forward. However, if your back looks great then why not go for an open-back style? The choice is essentially yours, pick your perfect diva dress, wear it with confidence and you’ll be able to conquer anything. It’s all about your confidence. By picking a dress that makes you feel happy, you’ll be able to look great and have a good time too.

Accessorising Your Diva Dresses

Jewellery might not be your thing, yet there are so many other ways to accessorise your diva dress. Whether that is with a statement bag, fascinator (if you’re going to a wedding and what to look great!) or even the best pair of heels. It’s all about making your dress feel amazing, heels are the defining feature to any outfit, especially if you’re wanting to look your best. Bold coloured dresses are best with bold, thick jewellery like large hooped earrings or a colourful statement necklace. If you’d rather rock a dress with patterns or prints on then a more minimalistic jewellery look is the best way to go. You don’t want the attention to be on your jewellery and accessories rather than your gorgeous dress/outfit that you have spent good money on.

Regarding shoes or heels, black is the best option, no matter what you wear or what occasion it is. As winter and autumn are the colder months, darker colours are what you should go for as they’re more associated with these months. You should wear whatever you feel is best for the occasion. Often enough, lighter, brighter colours are more appropriate for certain occasions but you should take each diva outfit as it comes.

Hopefully, you now have more of an idea about what types of diva dresses you like and what to wear, now you’re officially ready to go out and kick a**! You go, girl!
