Dress of the Day: Batwing maxi dress from Warehouse

Maxi_dressMaxi dresses don’t tend to get much of a look in at Dress of the Day, so in the interests of diversity, here’s Warehouse’s nod towards the 70s vibe going on in fashion land at the moment. If you have the right occasion (and figure) for it, we think this could be a stunning and refreshingly different dress to wear – glossy lips and shimmery eyes will complete the 70s feel, just try and steer clear of the frosted lipstick and blue eyeliner…

This is £90 at Warehouse.

    70s? I saw it more as a 40s thing myself (a bit like the cream vintage dress that Kate Moss wore/wrecked last year).

    Ugh, I can’t say I’m with you on this one – there’s just too much fabric – it’s too long and drab, I thought it was going to be one of your “Style on Trial”s when I saw it!

    I agree with Amelia It covers too much. Plus, the seams are in weird places and has an awkward drape, and bat wings aren’t very flattering (at least not on me). It’s a boring ‘mature’ look.

    I agree with Hannah; I definitely thought it was 30’s or 40’s before I thought 70’s. I’m planning a 30’s style masquerade party, and that kind of style was actually fairly common for evening wear. With the right hair and make-up, it could be extremely glamorous.
