MAKE A STATEMENT

February 20, 2014

If a black dress is the sartorial equivalent of the daily coffee: practical, sharp and dark,  then the statement dress would be the wardrobe counterpart of an iced hazelnut triple shot macchiato with cream and chocolate syrup. These dresses are meant to be talked about , admired, swooned over and envied. They are the dresses you buy for a special ocassion, the sort of dresses your daughter will want to steal. The Alex Perry dress pictured above is like a gelato on a summer’s day: pastel hued, light and delicious.

 

Josh Goot has really played with proportions this season – I love this beautiful bustier, thigh split, long sash number. It’s modern and sexy at the same time. 

This Dion Lee number is a sexy and  intricate play with textures and lenghts.
