Dress of the day: Marc by Marc Jacobs Taboo print dress
Marc by Marc Jacobs Taboo print dress £475 at My Wardrobe >>>
Today's dress of the day is all about colour, and injecting a little bit of sunshine into the current dull days. I remain confident we will eventually get a bit of Spring sunshine, but in the meantime a bit of virtual window shopping will fill the gap.
Marc Jacobs can always be relied upon to put a fun spin on a classic shape, and with this sundress he's gone geometric in bold shades of blue, pink, orange and purple. It's a more modern alternative to the many vintage-inspired pretty pastels that are currently available in the same shape, so if you're not a fan of the 50s look it gives you a new way to wear the fit and flare shape.
The seaming of the dress echoes the geometric feel - there's no tight waistband or gathered skirt, instead box pleats and triangular side panels shape the dress to the body and manipulate the print even more around the front, which has a slightly raised waistline.
