TFP Pick of the Day: The Perfect Stripe Dress for Winter

Staying styling AND staying warm aren’t necessarily one and the same thing at this time of year: in fact, all too often we end up forgetting about style altogether, and just layering on as many items of clothing as it takes to keep out the chill. The answer? Knitted dresses. They’re easy to wear (just as easy as jeans or leggings: maybe even easier, in fact, because you don’t need to find a top to wear with them), warm, but when you find one that works for you, you’ll look like you made a bit of an effort, even when you didn’t. Which is why we love this navy stripe dress by Sugarhill Boutique. The navy and white stripe gives…

6 of the Best… Little Black Dresses

Where would we be without the little black* dress? It’s chic, it’s easy to wear, you can dress it up or down as required and there’s pretty much one for every taste. With the Christmas party season well under way, the little black dress is about to get a serious workout, so here are six of our current favourites from the UK high street… 01. Rare London bustier midi dress, £55 Tulle skirts have never been trendier, but they also have a classic glamour to them that’s hard to beat. This one is just £55, and will make you feel like a movie star: or a ballerina, as the case may be… 02. Ted Baker bardot neckline bodycon dress, $195…

Good Clothes Gone Bad | The Back-Slit Dress

Remember when we talked about when good clothes go bad? Well, here’s another example… [buy it here] Now,  in fairness, this one could’ve gone either way. It’s one of those dresses that got an instant, “OMGLOVEIT!” reaction from us, quickly followed by a, “Or DO I?” The shape is amazing, is as the subtle print, which seems just right for the upcoming winter seasons. Dresses with sleeves are still rare enough to make us want to buy every one we see (Seriously, why so many short-sleeved dresses in winter, fashion designers? Don’t you all get cold? Do you really want us to spoil your beautiful designs by layering cardigans and scarves over the top every single time we wear them?), and did…

dress with a face

Faces in Places: Anna Sui suede mini dress

Can you see it? Can you see the face on this Anna Sui suede mini dress? Because we can see a face on this dress: and it’s not a happy face either. In fact, it’s a grump, annoyed face – a face that clearly says, “For crying out loud: why am I attached to a stupid suede mini dress? Why wouldn’t I have been a vintage Dior ballgown? Or something Taylor Swift might wear? Instead I’m stuck here with birds for eyes, and a really big nose…” Now can you see it? OK, OK, bad Photoshop is bad, we get it. But you see the face now, right? And now that you’ve seen it, you can’t UN-see it. That’s the…

lace dress

Dresses can be fashion crimes too

[Buy it here] Last week we mentioned that, when it comes to fashion crimes, trousers seem to commit more than their fair share of them. Well, let the record show that dresses aren’t totally innocent either. Take the dress above, for instance. Now, we’re going to bet that a lot of you will like this. It has that whole, “Look, I’m naked under this meagre smattering of lace!” look going on, and people seem to LOVE that for some reason. We don’t, needless to say – we’ve actually had nightmares in which we’re out in public wearing just a meagre smattering of lace – but it’s not the top half of the dress we want to talk about today: it’s…

dress or bag

Guess What It Is

Anyone feel like hazarding a guess at what this is? Without cheating by scrolling down the page for the answer, we mean? Is it a sleeping bag? A tent? Some kind of Ikea lampshade cover? Because it totally looks like an Ikea lampshade cover, don’t you think? It isn’t, though. Although we’d possibly like it better if it was. No, this colourful item is, in fact… [Buy it] ..a designer dress! Which will cost you £1,172.53. One. Thousand. One. Hundred. And Seventy Two. Pounds. And fifty-three pence. Nope, it doesn’t get any easier to believe the more you say it. Quite the opposite, in fact. What people choose to spend their money on is their business, obviously, but we have…

the ugliest dresses of the year

The Ugliest Dresses of 2014

We hope all our officers are having a happy holiday season, and taking the opportunity to rest up and get ready for a super-stylish new year. Right now, though, it’s still 2014, and we’re continuing our look back at some of the biggest fashion fails of the year – in our opinion, at least. This time we’re looking at some of the ugliest dresses of the year, and, as with our last roundup, these are all items from our archive , which means you’re unlikely to be still be able to buy most of them – unless you’re very unlucky. Here are some of our least favourite dresses of the year:  Meadham Kirchhoff rubber apron dress 2013 brought us one of…

orange Valentino dress

We’re, like, totally obsessed with this orange Valentino dress

Valentino orange silk dress, $3,700 We’ve always hated it when people use the word “brave” to describe someone’s fashion choices. Not only is it something of a back-handed compliment to give someone, (“Oh, that’s such a BRAVE choice!” is generally fashion-speak for, “Wow, what a hot mess!”) it also leaves you with no way to describe things that are ACTUALLY “brave”. If wearing clothes is “brave”, how do you describe someone who runs into a burning building to rescue a kitten, for instance? You’d have no words, would you? (See also: people who use the word “OBSESSED” when what they actually mean is “I glanced at this, and I quite like it, but I’ll have forgotten all about it by the…

When Maxi Dresses Go Wrong

The maxi dress. It’s a summer staple for many people: throw one on with a pair of sandals and a floppy sunhat, and you’re all set for a day by the pool, a trip to the beach, a leisurely day’s sightseeing… you can fill in the rest of this list yourself, we’re sure. Not only is the maxi dress a lightweight alternative to shorts, sundresses or all of those other summer options, it can also be very forgiving to the figure: unless, of course, it looks like this: Black maxi dress, $24 We have a grudging respect for this dress. It’s just so unapologetic, isn’t it? The girl who wears this dress isn’t going to fuss around, adding silly layers…

Style Trial | Zara eye print dress: a fashion blogger favourite…

very year, Zara manages to create an item of clothing which is snapped up and worn by absolutely everyone. And by “absolutely everyone”, we mean “by fashion bloggers”. Fashion bloggers often seem to exist in their own little trend microcosm, don’t they? For instance, we don’t recall seeing anyone wearing THAT Zara skort (which was LAST year’s fashion blogger ‘must have’) in “real” life, but every fashion blogger on the internet seemed to have one, and so it is with this eyeball-print dress. This dress is currently sold out online, but if you’re lucky you may be able to find one in store, and if not, there’s always eBay, where you’ll find tons of them, all selling for double the price…

Would you wear… Peacocks’ £1.99 lace dress?

Last week, UK fashion chain Peacocks rather cleverly managed to drum up some publicity for themselves by selling a dress for the bargain price of just £1.99 – about $3.30, for those of you in the U.S. The dress is shown above: it was a little lace number, available in mint or lilac, and, predictably enough, it sold out so quickly it managed to crash the brand’s website. Not to worry, though: Peacocks have announced plans to repeat the experiment in the future, with other low-priced dresses to come. Our question is: what do you think of them? For those of you worried about the ethics of buying clothes which are cheaper than your morning cappuccino, you can relax a…

REAL vs STEAL | Mint lace dresses by Dolce & Gabbana and RoseGal

L-R: Dresses by Dolce & Gabbana and RoseGal Today’s edition of “Real Vs Steal” features a very literal interpretation of that phrase: the lower-priced dress isn’t simply “inspired by” its designer counterpart – it’s such an exact copy of it that it could be said to be literally “stealing” the designer style. The designer dress in question is this mint beauty by Dolce & Gabbana. Our sister site ShoeperWoman featured this dress earlier this week, and we instantly fell in love with it. As it costs a bank-breaking £1,885, however, we resigned ourself to the fact that we’d never get to wear anything remotely like it – until Fashion Police informer, Claudia, emailed us the link to the RoseGal copy,…

Boden Nancy dress review

Closet Confidential | Boden ‘Nancy’ dress in blue Riviera print: review

Closet Confidential offers you a peek inside the Fashion Police closet, seeing what we’ve been buying, what we’ve been returning, and – most importantly – what we thought of it. Today, Chief of Police Amber takes a look at Boden’s ‘Nancy’ dress in ‘blue Riviera’ print, which you may remember as a former Dress of the Day candidate… Boden ‘Nancy’ dress in blue ‘Riviera’ print, £89 I pre-ordered this dress as soon as it appeared on the Boden summer preview site. I was totally won over by the pretty landscape print, as well as by the 50s-inspired wide neckline and full skirt. The dress finally arrived last week, and here’s what you need to know about it: Shipping As I…

The Ugliest Dresses of 2013

Each year, as December comes to a close, The Fashion Police like to take a look back through the case files, and round up some of the worst fashion crimes of the year just gone. This year, we’re starting off with a look at the dress section of our jailhouse, so sit back, relax (if you can), and take a look at our gallery of the ugliest dresses of 2013! (Note: These products go right back to the start of the year, and many – if not most – are now out of stock.  We’re pretty sure you’ll be able to live with this knowledge, but just in case you can’t, we’ve indicated where each dress came from on the…

Spaghetti straps over t-shirts: the 90s revived

We haven’t said much about the 90s-revival that’s been going on in fashion for a while now: mostly because we were hoping that if we ignored it for long enough, it would simply go away. Well, it didn’t go away. And now the stores are full of items of clothing that look like this: Dresses: Miss Selfridge Spagetti-strap dresses over white t-shirts: all you need is a velvet choker and a pair of Doc Martens, and it’ll be like 1995 never ended. GOD. Back then, of course, people wore ACTUAL dresses, over ACTUAL t-shirts, not this “stuck together” nonsense that prevails nowadays. This was all fields then, of course. Onesies were just for babies. Crocs hadn’t been invented. People didn’t…
