Victoria Beckham vs Topshop

Ok, here’s one I loved so much I bought it. I’ve been obsessed with Victoria Beckham’s drop waist shift dresses for a while and she has perfected ‘polished but playful’. So I almost ran to the till in Topshop with my new VB-inspired dress. The fabric is great quality the tailored shape sharp and yet a little soft and the frill, totally fun and faltering. The best bit is that despite being tomato coloured, this dress can be styled in SO many ways.

The new ‘perfect’ dress: Drop Waist Shift Dress £42 from Topshop

Here are my 5 top ways to style it

1 – For summer in the office team with white courts a la Celine (Zara do a great pair) a white or snakeskin clutch and white tux jacket.

2- For a bbq or fun in the sun, try a little clashy clashy. I plan on nabbing a neon necklace, big bright raffia sandals and accessorizing with hot pink or tangerine if I’m feeling brave.

3-For an evening out I’ll throw on a fitted black leather biker jacket, killer shoe boots and House of Holland starry tights. Chunky gold jewellery and a studded clutch would be cool.

4- To do the polished VB thing I will succumb to sensible leg-lengthening nude court shoes, simple Breton stripe clutch bag, big 70s-style Chloe sunglasses and a classic beige mac if it rains.

5- For a retro twist, I will wear this a-mazing dress with my fav silver fifties-style sling backs, a boxy lady-like handbag (I was envious of the queen last weekend) and big cats-eye glasses. If only I had a navy Chanel or Marni classic jacket to go with it!
