How not to wear lace…

Lace_dress

Last week, when we were discussing the current trend for all things lace, we said that, when it’s done right, lace can look fantastic, but when it’s done wrong… well, when it’s done wrong, you end up with something like this.

This dress was reported to us by a mystery correspondent, who said, "I feel awkward just looking at this dress…"

Yes, us too. But probably not half as awkward as the poor model felt wearing it – we can only imagine the scratchiness of that thing, to say nothing of the, er, see-throughness of it!

How not to wear leopard print

Leopard_print_crops Our rule of thumb regarding animal print is that a little goes a long way. A very long way.

Another rule of thumb we’ve adopted recently is that animal print should never be pink. Or indeed, any bright colour that animals themselves wouldn’t wear.

Just for the hell of it, let’s add another rule to that mix. Let’s say animal print should stay the hell away from your thighs. It may seem arbitrary, we know, but animal print on thighs… it just doesn’t seem like such a great idea to us, you know?

By following rules, we believe it is possible to wear animal print responsibly. It won’t be possible to wear these pink, leopard print capris from River Island, of course, but hey, you can’t have everything, can you?
