Smock Horror! Second smock dress sighting in two days – Fashion Police concerned

Smock_dress_tfp

D’you hear that? That’s the sound of our hearts breaking as we realise that our worst fears are slowly being realised with this, the second sighting of a SMOCK DRESS in just two days. Please, Fashion Designers of the World, we’re begging you here: please don’t start churning out tents to the exclusion of everything else again. Because they make us look pregnant, and while we’re sure that’s not the case for everyone who wears them, we really appreciate having a choice in the matter. That totally wasn’t the case last time the Smock Dress infiltrated the world of fashion and the style was literally the only thing available, so please: make them if you must, but make other styles too. Please?

If you’re jumping with joy at the Return of the Smock, this one is £95 – £95! – and is available from Oli.

    wow, they remind me of the dresses my mom used to wear when she was pregnant back in the 70’s! I would look like a circus tent in one of those!

    Oh God, I hate these dresses with a vengeance. They look like maternity wear. How people think these are flattering and/or nice is beyond…

    There are maternity dresses out there that are more flattering than this.

    I must have a peculiar taste but I like it because it reminds me of the 70’s. The sort of dress I liked to wear as a little girl. Mind you, I cannot stand when a style is in fashion and nothing else is available.

    I wore smocked dresses until I was about 8. They were darling, I was darling.They do not belong on anyone over, say, 10. No exceptions.None. Not that anything should ever be made in that print.

    Why set up the tent when you can just wear it?
