Style Tried&Tested:Draping

This week's challenge was draping. I'm a big fan of this trend because it's so flattering to the female form. Think loose, free flowing fabric. This tend is a bit of a constant on the runways and can be worn everywhere from the office to your day off. We saw Lanvin put a beautiful charcoal chiffon jumpsuit down their runway, Balenciaga draped leather to create cute little mini dresses and Burberry Prorsum paired nude chiffon skirts with structured belted jackets for their Spring/Summer show.

I went with Burberry's suggestion and created a look for work. This simple shift dress with draping detail down the front also has a beaded neckline so you don't have to think about accessories. Grab a scarf, pair of court shoes and go.

Dress from Pied A Terre in stone £140.00
Scarf from Oasis £18.00
Shoes are called Geneva from Bertie £80.00. I just loved the reptile effect scales with that skinny heel.

8/10 for 'would you wear it' - I love the nude colour but I'm a bit of a spiller.
9/10 for comfort. The dress feels like butter on! And I could walk for miles in those killer heels, they were really comfortable.
