ASOS Spring 2013 dresses
LOVE the dresses. Or we would if they were just a little bit longer, anyway. OK, quite a bit longer: the one on the left isn’t passing the Fingertip Test on this model, and we have no idea how she’d be able to move freely in it without fear of flashing everyone. We’re willing to concede that the rest of the world tends to like hemlines a lot shorter than we’d wear personally, though, so that aside, top marks to ASOS for excellent work on the summer dress front. We particularly like the print on the one of the left: yes, it reminds us of a vase, but it would be perfect on a hot summer day, and wouldn’t require any accessorizing other than shoes and maybe sunglasses: great for us lazy gals…
First up, we should stress here that the outfit on the left is a t-shirt worn over a dress, not, as we first thought, a dress itself. If it had been an actual dress, it would be a terrifying example of Stuck-Together-Clothes, and would have classed as “ugly”, rather than simply “bad”. As it is… it’s pretty bad. And also fascinating, actually, because we’ve been seeing examples of these super-shiny t-shirts all over the place lately, and it would never have occurred to us to throw one over a clashing lace dress. This is why we’re not fashionable, obviously.
As for the dress on the right: this COULD have worked if it had a little more shape to it. As shown here, it looks like a flesh wound. Maybe that’s just us, though.
The Downright Ugly:
On the left: an 80s fancy dress costume. On the right: the Dress Like a Toddler Trend meets… Sideboob. We’re assuming the stylist thought she’d make the toddler-esque overalls look more adult by layering them over the sheer top. That worked just a little TOO well, if you ask us…
In the gallery below, you’ll find some more images from the ASOS Spring 2013 collection. Some are good, some are bad, s0me are downright ugly. It’s up to you to decide which is which…
