Fasten your seatbelts. I’m about to simplify your summer wardrobe.
If your budget means you can only treat yourself to one dress this season, people, make it THIS one.
Mia had to go to a shoot for Perth’s Sunday Times this week and I convinced her to wear it.
“I can’t” she said. “I don’t do fitted.”
But it’s stretchy, I told her. Comfy even. And it sucks you in a bit.
“I can’t,” she said. “Horizontal stripes aren’t flattering. I read that once.”
That’s bollocks, I told her. Ignore that old-school fashion advice. Horizontal stripes can be VERY flattering.
“I can’t,” she said. “Bodycon dresses are for 22 year olds.”
No they’re not, I insisted. Kate Winslett and countless other celebrities over 25 and even over 35 wear bodycon.
So she tried it on and before I’d even finished zipping it up, she had her credit card out and was trying to buy it.
It’s formal name is the Miami Bodycon Dress. But I prefer to call it the Hugh Jackman of the dress world. This dress is a TRIPLE-THREAT!
Cleverly combining three of the season’s most flattering (and fun) trends; colour-blocking, neon AND horizontal stripes, being ‘on-trend’ has actually never been this easy.
Even better, it can be worn three ways: as a dress, a top and a skirt (take a look at the gallery below).
At $150, it doesn’t break the bank and makes this frock pretty damn appealing.
So if you’re at all nervous about trying any (or all!) of these spring fashion trends, this dress will do all the leg work for you. And it looks terrific with opaque tights too.
This week, we had it on high rotation at the Mamamia office. Here’s what we learned:
Ankle boots are all you need to wear this piece during the day.
