Preen Line Ivy paneled stretch-cotton drill dress

Dress of the Day: Preen Line Ivy paneled stretch-cotton drill dress

Preen Line Ivy paneled stretch-cotton drill dress, $715 Although the skirt-like waistband and contrast panel on the bodice take this dress dangerously close to “Stuck Together Clothes” territory, we’re willing to forgive it: partly because we’d probably forgive this dress just about anything, but also because if ALL S-T-Cs looked like this, we may not even consider them a Crime of Fashion in the first place. Oh yeah, and also because we’re complete suckers for this kind of full skirt. Show us a full skirted dress, we’ll show you a Dress of the Day… Buy it

Karen Millen turqouise fitted peplum dress

Dress of the Day: Karen Millen turqouise fitted peplum dress

Karen Millen turqouise fitted peplum dress, £160 We’re a little bit Karen Millen crazy at the moment, which means you can probably expect to see a lot more of their dresses here in future: even more than we’ve been showing you already, that is. Today we’ve picked this turquoise peplum dress for its simple shape, its understated use of the peplum (Which is still going strong after its return to fashion last year), and because there just isn’t enough turquoise in the world, as far as we’re concerned. Buy it

pink Miu Miu dress

Dress of the Day | Miu Miu pink dress with Peter Pan collar

Miu Miu pink dress with Peter Pan collar, $2,125 If you don’t like the colour pink, 60s-style dresses, or paying more than $2000 for a single item of clothing, we’re afraid we can’t help you. If you DO like all of those things, however, you can find this at Net-a-Porter. Buy it

Carven Paris map print dress

Dress of the Day: Carven Paris map print cotton dress

Carven Paris map print cotton dress, £391.37 At first glance, this dress probably just looks like any other cotton sundress, and SO WHAT, we hear you say: SO WHAT, Fashion Police? Take a closer look, though, and you’ll see that the print is actually a map of Paris – and quite a detailed one, too. We’ve no idea just how accurate it is, or which era it dates from, of course, but if you’re as fascinated by maps as we are, you might just love this. And if you’re not, well, at least it would give you a good excuse to visit Paris. Well, if you already have the map… Buy it

floral print dress

Dress of the Day: H&M floral-print dress

H&M floral print dress, £24.99 A floral print dress is so much of a spring fashion cliché that we almost hesitated to show you this one from H&M. Almost. This is pretty, inexpensive, and the kind of thing you can throw on with a pair of sandals and a denim jacket and still look like you made an effort. Oh, and it’s also available in green and brown…

Oscar de la Renta embroidered silk-organza dress

Dress of the Day: Oscar de la Renta embroidered silk-organza dress

  Oscar de la Renta embroidered silk-organza dress, $6,190 This is absolutely beautiful. As much as we love it, though (and we love it a lot), it’s here purely as eye candy, because, seriously, folks: $6,000 for a dress? If anyone needs us, we’ll be lying down in a darkened room with a nice stiff drink on the bedside table… Buy it

ASOS Skater Dress With Pink Beading

Dress of the Day: ASOS Skater Dress With Pink Beading

  ASOS Skater Dress With Pink Beading, £85 From the ASOS Collection line comes this pretty skater dress with beaded bodice and skirt. At £85, it’s a little more expensive than some of the online store’s other offerings, but let’s be honest: it’s a little nicer than most of them too, isn’t it? Made from a delicate, sheer chiffon, this is available in UK sizes 6 – 18. Buy it  

60s shift dress

Dress of the Day: Florence & Fred 60s style daisy shift dress

60s style is coming back in a big way (Is it just us, or do we seem to find oursleves saying that every few seasons?) and we love this affordable little daisy print shift dress by Florence & Fred, which combines a bold print, a mini hem and a Peter Pan collar for a real 60s-inspired look. Wear with heels for summer nights, or flats to keep it casual. Just go easy on the backcombing and eyeliner if you don’t want to look too much like a time traveller… BUY IT
