Crimes of Fashion, Dresses

Underwear as Outerwear: ASOS BLACK Lace Overlay Crini Dress

This ASOS dress reminds us of those nightmares we sometimes have where it’s our wedding day and we’re just about to start walking down the aisle when we glance down and realise we forgot to put our dress on, and are standing there in our bridal underwear instead.

And don’t get us wrong: it’s NICE underwear. It’s just… it’s underwear. Some will want to insist it’s “sexy” to go out dressed like this. When we see the back view, though, we just want to giggle:

Seriously, if we saw someone out in public like this, we’d want to run up to her, throw our coats around her and say, “OMG, how embarrassing! Your skirt’s tucked into your knickers!” But of course, then WE’D be the ones to be embarrassed, for this is, in fact, a dress, and as every self-respecting fashionista knows right now, if it doesn’t look like Madonna might have worn it during her “Like a Virgin” era, it’s just not fashionable.

Luckily we don’t care about that, so we won’t feel obliged to go out wearing this, or anything remotely similar. We’ll also save ourselves £150.

Would you wear it?
