Dress of the day: Oasis Boucle Stripe Dress
We saw the monochrome geometric trend first at Marc Jacobs, Unique and Acne for Spring / Summer 2013. Made from a structured fabric, this high street dress features monochrome horizontal stripe geometric paneling with simple a line skirt shape and rounded tee top. With a thicker stripe belt placement, we'd defy anyone's waist to look anything but tiny in this number. The ultimate optical illusion for those wanting to define their curvy shape.
The structure of this dress is our favourite (this subtle a-line is the new shape - you heard it here first), as well as the sporty feel geometric patterning which feels fresh and new. How to wear? If you have something special in the diary, wear along with your favourite heels. If you fancy wearing on a more regular basis, layer underneath a slouchy sporty sweat top and team with chunky black heeled boots.
