Introducting… The Lovehandle Dress!

Cut_out_dress

We’ve been noticing a lot of this around lately: it’s what we like to call "The Love Handle Dress", although clearly that’s something of a misnomer in this particular case, because this Lipsy number isn’t cut quite low enough to expose our wobbly bits. The "Ribs and Back Dress" didn’t sound as catchy, though…

Now, clearly this kind of dress isn’t aimed at The Fashion Police and its officers. It’s aimed at those who are younger, braver, and less likely to use the phrase, "ooh, you’ll catch your death in that, young lady!" Oh, and who go clubbing, obviously.

Is it just us, then? Is our dislike of the Love Handle Dress purely caused by the fact that we’re clearly not part of its target market in any case, or is it, in fact, a crime of fashion? You decide. (And when you do, tell us…)

    If you have the body to pull it off, it could look nice in a club. But anywhere else, with any other body? Ridiculous!

    I think it’s a cute idea, and I’ve seen it pulled off well…but definitely not particularly elegant!

    The colour is lovely, but…argh. If you’ve got the body it’s fine, but who’d be wearing this to the office party?
    Wait…let’s not answer that*… 😉
    *Because there’s always one…

    It looks like something they would wear on Dancing With the Stars… which, by the way, is not a compliment.

    This particular one is ugly. I wouldn’t wear it even IF I had the body for it.

    You could call it “The Back Fat Dress”…

    The only way anyone could possibly look good in this is if they were stick-thin with no chest. It could make anyone with even the smallest amount of meat on them look like a hippo in a tutu! Not good!
