Top Pick: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Shaman Dress
Wednesday, October 02, 2013 • Permalink •
Vivienne Westwood is known for glorious asymmetric draping, and this dress doesn’t disappoint in that regard.
The lightweight viscose/ silk blend crepe de chine hangs like a dream, creating a very flattering cut that skims curves while still feeling quite slim. The drape extends from the neckline down through the waist and around to the lower back – click through the photo at left to see additional views and a handy video.
Let’s face it, this dress will be out of place in conservative workplaces, but you could definitely rock it in a more creative work environment or for a work party. You’ll get the most mileage out of this dress, however, in purely social situations.
With nude sandals and a chic little clutch, this dress will be perfect at a luncheon or other daytime affair. Fall or winter bridal shower, anyone? Add metallic shoes and gold statement jewelry and this frock could easily go sophisticated-evening.
The fit and pattern are modern, but not too trendy to justify the investment-level price tag, while the options for use cover a decent range of I-need-a-fabulous-dress situations. Perfect.
