Cheap Monday’s duct tape bodycon dress: an easy DIY project

Duct Tape: this year's must-have accessory

Cheap Monday are really loving duct tape this season. First there was that confusing, and potentially embarrassing, mesh top, and now they bring us this duct tape embellished dress, which Shopbop describe as “a cheeky take on the bandage dress”, and which we describe as “what clothes will look like after the apocalypse”.

Regardless of how we feel about this dress, though, we can’t help feeling you could easily recreate the look at home, DIY style. All you’ll need is an old dress plus a roll of duct tape et voila, you’ll be “bang on trend” (sorry!). Mind you, given that this isn’t too expensive, at $60, you may well prefer just to let Cheap Monday do the “hard” work for you. Would you buy this? If so, get it at Shopbop.

    Looks like the sort of outfit Lady Gaga would accessorize with shoes made out of string and a giant Prittstick on her head. But I suppose it is recession friendly – when your clothes fall apart just stick them back together!

      Hell Yes! I just placed my order a couple nights ago. I love, love, love this dress. It’s alot more flattering on the model @ (I love dis site… made my second purchase within the last four days w/ them. They rock and ship fast!) Anywho… Yes! Sexi dress, u just gotta have the confidence and swagg to rock it, and I sure as hell do! (Whoop!-Whoop!, lol)

      For some reason, it looks a bit awkward on the model here… :o/ (why does the word “awkward” look so funni typed?)

    Hey, at least they resisted the urge to stick crosses over the nipples this time…
