Friday Frock: Warehouse Tropical Dots Dress
In 100% silk and a really quirky, creative print the Warehouse Floral Dots Dress at ASOS looks much more expensive than its £65.00 price tag. The print is layered with sun-bursty polka dot patterns and pretty tropical flowers in vibrant pinks, purples, yellows and blues with some greenery for good measure. It's complex without looking too fussy. There is an almost ombre effect as the dress fades to dark background with much larger flowers around the bottom of the skirt, more reminiscent of a Hawaiian print than the smaller, delicate blooms on the top.
Contrast racerback straps add a modern feel to the piece, and keep it from seeming overly girlie or frou frou. The gathered high waist is accented by a contrast self-tie sash. The description notes that the length is cut short, so this might be a good dress to pair with summer flats. It would look equally chic with some pretty feminine ballet flats or some edgier flat sandals with hardware and a tougher vibe.
It can be hard to find an alternative to the aggressively twee, ultra girlie floral frocks of summer, but ASOS has found it.
