I have a tendency to seek out roomy, comfy clothes with clean cuts and high necks that look a bit nun-ish. It’s just something I can’t resist. Regardless of current fashions or trends, I keep accumulating similar looking styles. Even in the trendiest boutique, I’ll always find the nun-like gem.
This red and black dress for example, I dug through a pile of bodycon dresses until I found a solitary shift dress. You may also remember my white shift dress and checked shift dress that were also in high rotation. So the concept of the shift dress isn’t new but when it’s done in two contrasting colours that visually cut the shape in half, it brings it up to date with 2013. Adding long over the knee boots adds a striking contrast to this otherwise modest red and black outfit. It’s this simple addition that transforms the whole look. Opposites attract, fact!
