Style on Trial: Forever Unique white pleated dress

Well, it’s certainly “unique”, and you won’t get any arguments from us about the “pleated” part of the product description, either. We do, however, hope the model keeps her head facing in the direction it’s in at the moment, because we’re worried those pleats could take an eye out if she moves it.*

Oli describe this as a “statement dress”, and we’d concur with that, too, but what kind of statement is it making: a good one or a bad one? That’s up to you to decide, so leave a comment and tell us what you think of it! If you want to buy it, meanwhile, it’s by Forever Unique, and it’s ÂŁ175 at Oli.

*Not really.

    Those pleats are too much. Unless you’re intending to dress up as a bird of paradise plant.

    I think it is absolutely gorgeous, and I’m not saying that lightly because I’m not really a one shoulder dress kind of girl OR a white dress kind of girl. I do like clothes to have a little drama though.

    i’d love it in a slightly toned-down version… right now it’s a bit too scary.

    I like the picture of it sans model, but for some reason it just doesn’t seem to translate very well to being worn in my opinion.

    I agree with those who have said that it looks better on its own. It’s like a statue, it just makes you stare at it and forget that there’s a body beneath it.

    I’m actually not the kind of person that tends to like ‘statement’ dresses, but I find this to be very striking and love the visual.

    Beautiful and sculptural, but terrible feng shui.

    I love it! It could easily be a bit much, I think, but I love how the model’s wearing it: simple hair and makeup, matching shoes.

    I have a weakness for architectural detailing–so much that I would risk the side of my face being skewered.

    I like the dress as a concept, but I don’t think I’d wear it myself.
