CATWALK TREND DECODED
YOUR END-OF-SUMMER HOLIDAY DRESS IS HERE
By Anna Heaton, 15 August 2017
Yep, summer is almost over *sob*, but there's still plenty of time to squeeze in a last-minute getaway. So, while you might not be up for totally refreshing your holiday wardrobe, it doesn't hurt to have one new item to rejuvenate your suitcase. That's where this pale blue, printed, off-the-shoulder midi dress comes in.
Sashaying down the runway at Erdem SS17, this model donned a muted pale blue midi dress with an opulent print that screamed dinner with a view. The off-the-shoulder look was updated with the addition of black tied-up straps, which matched the ribbon complementing her 'do (more holiday vibes for sure) and the wrap-around platform heels.
ASOS Insider Lotte shows us how it's done in literal holiday mode. The detailed print on her Warehouse number means it looks way more spenny than it actually is and, to keep all eyes on the dress, she wears with simple, lace-up espadrilles (the vacay version of Erdem's platforms). Finally, a red cross-body bag not only carries the essentials but also adds a pop of colour. Dreamy.
Try it out
For a beachy take on the trend, look no further than this boohoo beauty accompanied by a tasseled trim that's super cute and very 2017. It'll look as good by the sea with sliders as it will with woven flatforms for dinner and drink plans, too.
