“ Brand: Asos „
Like most girls I love clothes, and I just can't seem to stop myself from placing regular orders with online super-retailer www.ASOS.com. I came across this dress in the sales where it was reduced from the RRP of £14.00, to just £8.00. I was planning to stock up on some basics and this was exactly what I needed so to get it at a bargain sale price was a nice bonus.
The dress has a very simple design with a plain shape to it. It's cut in a standard vest fit at the top with a scoop neck and is close fitting down the rest of the body as well. It is made of a stretchy cotton blend fabric which is very clingy and fits well with the bodycon trend. I have this dress in black which is great as I know that I can throw it on with anything else in my wardrobe and it will match and blend in, and can be styled in many different ways as it makes a versatile base piece. With it being so plain I would say it is best suited for daywear with casual outfits. The length is quite short but it's not too mini, and I've been teaming it with tights or leggings to get me through the cold weather until Spring finally arrives. It looks particularly good when worn with a belt around the waist to add a bit of detail and definition. If I'm stuck for outfit ideas this is a safe option and because it can be paired with so many different looks and styles it is a handy piece for taking away on breaks and keeping packing to a minimum.
The fabric is made of 48% Cotton, 48% Modal, 4% Elastane, and this makes it very stretchy to give that tight fitted look. It is incredibly comfortable to wear and the stretch allows for ease of movement, so even though the dress is clingy it's not restrictive. It's very simple to look after the garment as it is basically the same as a regular t-shirt and can be washed along with everything else in your machine. I always wash on a cool setting of 30 degrees, and this works just fine to get it nice and clean and fresh for wearing again. It is in great condition despite lots of wearing, thanks to the durable nature of the fabric.
This simple little black dress is a real wardrobe staple and I can definitely recommend it.
