Dress of the day: The Lulu double cloth dress from Oasis
Todays dress of the day comes from the lovely folk at Oasis. I actually found myself drooling over quite a few of the new dresses on the oasis website this afternoon, but I finally decided on the £65 Lulu zip double cloth dress after zooming in on the details.
With its heritage style navy, green and black tartan pattern, the dress is a classic Autumn/Winter piece that sits perfectly amongst the trends for AW12, but it's the design elements that give this dress a cheeky and modern edge - I love the leather-look sweetheart neckline piping that breaks up the layering and the way it carries round to the back, dipping in a curved line through the exposed zip. The delicate slim belt gives it an extra kick too, pulling in the waist and creating a confident silhouette.
It may be under the formal category on the website, but this quirky dress has the ability to translate from the office to a breezy cocktail bar; some of you out there could even get away with dressing it down if you teamed it with thick tights, a leather jacket and a pair of ankle boots!
