Last week your reactions to the 1860s girl’s pink & white striped party frock were quite divided. Most of you said something along the lines of “cutest dress ever!” or “I would have felt like a princess in it”. Some of you, however, had horrible experiences with being forced to wear frilly dresses as a kid, and you didn’t like it for that reason. Those in favour of pretty princess dresses pulled it in at a 8.4 out of 10.
This week, lets leave any chance of saccharine behind and look at a dress inspired by my time at Art Deco Weekend. This frock from the Met incorporates clever angles and curves and pleats and stripes, all while maintaining a sleek silhouette – very Art Deco.
When I polled you about your least favourite fashion eras the 1920s won (lost?) by a landslide. So this dress is a real risk. Will it fall foul of your dislike of the 20s? Or will you like the simple, comfortable, easy-wear, restrained but colourful, Art Deco inspired shift dress?
