Style on Trial: Matthew Williamson’s multi-coloured dress

Matthew_williamson_dress

Some of you said you really quite liked the colourful Matthew Williamson dress we featured in last week’s Wear or Die, so we thought we’d put you to the test once again with a dress by the same designer. This one isn’t quite as colourful as last week’s effort, but it still had us reaching for the migraine tablets as soon as we laid eyes on it, so we’ll be interested to hear what you think of it.

This is $1,195 from Browns. Is it a crime of fashion, though, or would you happily wear it?

    I would not wear it personally, but I could see this looking good on some women. I really like the cut of the dress though and would probably be willing to wear it if it weren’t for the colors & pattern.

    Not for $1,195 I wouldn’t. This has a split personality, unlike the dress from last week. Too much going on here. But I like the blue plaid of the skirt – wish the whole dress were made of it. With different sleeves…

    Just like the Matthew Williamson dress in the Wear or Die, I’d like this one if I could cut off the sleeves! I can just about cope with the sleeves but if they weren’t there I’d just love this. 😀

    Meh, it’s not as horrendous as the Wear or Die one, but I wouldn’t wear it.

    The lack of symmetry is really throwing me off; I really think this dress would look a lot better if it was a little more symmetrical. It looks sort of cute from the back, though. I can see some pulling it off. (But I probably wouldn’t wear it myself.)

    Why does this remind me of a bad acid trip?

    I wish it were $1195! It’s £1195. I am keeping an eye on this one, it may get priced down on the sales (only 5 weeks to go!). As I said at the “wear or die”, I do wear Matthew Williamson prints and they look better in real life than in stock photos.

    I like it. My first instinct is to say I like it but not on me, but on second look, I would definitely be willing to try it on and take a look in the mirror. Paired with some dark leggings and nice boots, I think it might work.
