Boutique’s silk maxi dress complete with “leg window”

Poor old dress: it couldn’t decide whether to be maxi or mini, so it tried to be both, and ended up neither. Oh, cruel fate!

Dresses like this are one of The Fashion Police’s pet hates. Either it’s a short dress with some kind of “modesty screen” on the bottom, or it’s a long dress designed for those who need a formal gown, but just can’t STAND the thought of not being able to show off their legs. Either way, it fails to impress us, but if it’s just the kind of thing you’ve been looking for, it’s £70 at Topshop.

What do you think of it?

    Not liking the see through long secetion at the leg. It just looks out of place and pointless.

    Just add a plunging neckline and some lace at the cuffs and you’ve got a perfect outfit for Morticia Adams!

    It’s so ugly to look at. I can’t stand the form of the dress.

    £70!!! That is truly horrendous. I’d love to know how many of these topshop have sold. If any!
