I have a confession: I, Chloe Sharp, Artworker for ASOS, am a dressaholic. Like, a really bad one. My latest obsession is the cheongsam, the classic Chinese dress adopted by the coolest kids of the 90s, and a trend from the decade that mercifully hasn’t reached saturation point yet (check out ASOS Marketplace for loads of original numbers). I wanted to test whether this slinky piece can be worn today, in full glare of the office, and then out for dinner in the evening. Here's what inspired me to give it a try.
