Hybrid V-Neck Self Tie Shoulder and Hip Dress
I go through phases of having favourite makes of dresses (my preferred thing to buy) and at the moment I have a bit of a "thing" about Hybrid dresses.
I bought this from asos, www.asos.com and it cost £85, which at the time seemed to be the price of every Hybrid dress regardless of the style. Most of the dresses are the same kind of fit and it's the detailing on each individual dress which differentiates them from each other.
The dress is available in red or black and in sizes 8 to 16. I have the black in a size 8, and because it is it is a body con fit it kind of pulls in and pushes out in all the right places. It has a low v neckline with knotted detailing to the shoulders- these are tied permanently so cant be undone to change the fit of the dress. It gathers softly under the bodice and has a very fitted waist and tailored skirt. At the waist there is another tie which coordinates with the ties on the shoulders and gives the dress a nice bit of detailing. The back of the dress gives the figure a streamlined look and has a concealed zip and a small split, useful so that I can walk properly because the bottom of the skirt higs the legs to below the knees.
The dress is 70% Viscose, 27% Nylon, 3% Elastane and it's the elastane which makes it a great fit, because often I find dresses don't fit properly without this elastane.
CARE OF THE DRESS...
The dress can be washed in a 40 degree machine wash, which is great ews because I hate having to pay dry cleaning prices after wearing a dress once.
When I first bought this dress I wore it on several occasions and to very different events. Because it is quite simple, it can easily be dressed upor down and depending on the accessories it can be worn to informal or more informal events. It is also the kind of dress which could fit quite easily into the day to night category- wear it to work, and look smart and then change the shoes for night time wear.
I like the length and the structured style, and even though it is very fitted,it is very easy and comfortable to wear.
A bit of a classic- I will certainly be buying more from this designer.
