TopFour: Black Asymmetric Dress

4 Jun

After finishing my final ever exam on Wednesday morning, the last few days have been rather a whirlwind. I went out to an end of term party last night and needed a dress to wear that was dressy but not too formal – something my wardrobe seems to be lacking. I went for a simple little black dress, but with an asymettric shoulder to make it more edgy and modern. The first one here from TopShop was a great choice – it was affordable but still looked great. Here it is with three other styles that I think are equally stylish.

1. One Shoulder Bandage Dress, £45. Topshop.

2. One Shoulder Ruffle Dress, £28. Warehouse.

3. Asymmetric Silk Mini Dress, Milly. £332.

4. Patrol Cotton Asymmetric Dress, French Connection. £85.

TopFour: Lovely in Lace

18 May

I rarely stray onto Net-a-porter for fear of bankrupting myself from just looking at the pictures but I happened to do so today and came across this my-life-will-not-be-complete-until-I-am-wearing-it white lace dress. However my student budget refuses to allow for it. Luckily though, Topshop has a fairly similar substitute and Warehouse offer two slightly different white lace alternatives. Now all that is needed to save it from being a bit too bridal is a black leather or stonewash denim jacket to ‘scruffy it up’ in a way that would horrify my mother yet please me greatly.

1. Rancoeur White Lace Dress, Sandro. £235.

2. Lace Tie Back Dress by Rare, Topshop. £25.

3. Scalloped Lace Skater Dress, Warehouse. £40.

4. Lace Shift Dress, Warehouse. £60.
