Rewind to 1960s Please

A pattern has appeared in the fashion world, and I’ve seen it coming for a while. The drop dress is making a come back. I have noticed that now and again this style has been hitting the racks, but hasn’t really been picked up as a trend until now. 

Mini Shift Dress that English model Jean Shrimpton wore to the 1965 Melbourne Racing Carnival.

It’s similar to the drop waist, but is more straight down giving an angular feel. 

I really love this styles simplicity. All you need is the dress and a nice pair of shoes – and viola! 

I have to say I would kill to wear this sort of thing, but lets face it! I’m a proud owner of big breasts and wide hips, and wearing straight down dresses just doesn’t compliment my figure. I hope girls with relative the same shape as mine take this on board…

But here are some of my favourite at the moment.

Combined Print Dress – Zara

The black and white combination is huge at the moment and this particular pattern just gives it a little extra. The chosen fabric would definitely stand out. The black helm also gives a great contrast to your legs, making them look longer.

I really love the simplicity of this dress. You could make it an amazing and classy outfit with the right pair of shoes and a clutch. 

ASOS Shift Dress In Paisley Print

I know the sleeves make this look more like an outfit from the 70’s (plus the retro pattern) but i love the colour and design!

Bassike 3/4 Sleeve Poplin Back

This Bassike dress is great as an everyday outfit. And the off white is fantastic for winter.

This is my favourite by far. The incandescent detail of the fabric it sure to be an eye catcher, and because of the design even my body shape would suit this particular dress.

Until sunday pretties! I’ll be reporting live from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in Sydney!

Can’t wait!
