Style Trial | Three Floor scalloped dress

orange scallop sleeved dress with gold skirt

orange scalloped top

Three Floor scalloped dress, £128

ASOS describe this item as a “fancy dress”, and while we guess that’s technically true – well, it IS pretty fancy – it also totally had us thinking it was supposed to LITERALLY be fancy dress. As in, “a Halloween costume”. Maybe a cartoon dinosaur of some kind, say?

As it turns out, however, this isn’t a costume, and it’s not a dinosaur suit either (although if you want to wear it as one, we promise not to tell.) Actually, it’s a dress designed by London label Three Floor, who, ASOS inform us, are “inspired by the effortless style of fashion insiders, from models to bloggers.” So now you know, folks: IT’S THE BLOGGER’S FAULT.

There’s a lot that’s interesting about this piece, from the bright orange scalloped top (Not the easiest colour to pull off, but definitely one of the most eye-catching), to the slashed sides, the low cut top, and the short gold skirt. It’s not your ordinary item of clothing, anyway, and so our question to you is:

Do you like it?

Would you wear it?

Would you buy it?

If you answered “yes” to the last question, you can head over here and have your £128 at the ready.

If you answered “yes” to any of the other questions – or even if you answered ‘no’, actually – we’d love to hear your thoughts, so you know the drill:  leave us a comment and let us know if this is a crime of fashion, or innocent of all charges!

    No, no and no. This happens when you crossbreed a raptor with a pumpkin.

    The first time I’d seen anything “scalloped” on an item of clothing was on this Valentino jacket http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/383989

    I didn’t think I would like any such thing, but I thought it looked surprisingly wearable & actually quite like it. I can’t however, say the same about Three Floor’s take on scalloping clothes. I don’t know if the dress simply looks that ridiculous because the model has such a small frame, or weather it really is just plain ridiculous. I’m leaning towards the latter, though.

    Stegosauras Realness right here!
    I am not really sure what is happening with this outfit. Looks like two independently ugly pieces of clothing made love and created an even more confusing mutant baby. I love how the model is giving me come hither eyes and trying to convince me of her hotness when all I hear in my head is “I’m the baby gotta love me”

    I actually like it, but you’d have to be Rihanna or work at a fashion magazine in New York or London to pull it off. You can’t wear that in most offices or just to the coffee shop. It’s definitely eclectic couture.
