The Sack is Back: Coco Ribbon Painted Flower Print Kaftan


ASOS call this a "kaftan", but we beg to differ: that right there is a sack, if ever we saw one, and you all know how we feel about sack dresses. This one is particularly perplexing to us, because as well as being unflattering in shape to all but the heavily pregnant (and even they could probably do better), this particular sack dress is also made of a fabric that looks a lot like it came from either a) a nightdress or b) curtains.

None of which points are in its favour, as far as we're concerned, but if you disagree, it's £375 at ASOS.

    Do these actually look good on anyone? I mean I’m tall and skinny, and I look weird in it – like a lamp shade in fact. And my bigger friends (not obese, just average) say they look horribly fat in them… I can only imagine how unflattering this would look on a very full body shape.
    Seriously, who wears these?

    That looks like something I would wear to bed.
