Would you wear this lampshade dress? Celebs are loving it18th Oct 17 | Beauty
This Boohoo Premium Brocade dress has proved a big hit on Instagram.
Ask any fashion designer and they’ll tell you inspiration can strike from all kinds of places – Christopher Kane has borrowed from botanical textbooks, for example, while Marc Jacobs is renowned for taking a period in history and creating a whole collection around it.
With that in mind, we can’t help but think that, when creating this minidress, the Boohoo design team were inspired by the kind of furnishings more commonly seen in your grandma’s house.
That’s right, the Boohoo Premium Melody Brocade and Tassel Off Shoulder Dress, with its floral print and black tassels, bears more than a passing resemblance to a vintage Victorian floral lampshade.
Bit weird, right? But actually, we’re loving it, and so are a host of stylish celebs, if their Insta feeds are anything to go by.
Made in Chelsea star Tiffany Watson chose the £60 frock for a snap to hype the new season of the reality show, while TOWIE’s Chloe Lewis captioned her pic ‘Can’t do wrong with an LBD’ (we’re inclined to agree).
Another MIC babe, Rosie Fortescue, styled her minidress dress with black suede over-the-knee boots.
As did fashion designer and Ex on the Beach star Lillie Lexie Gregg, who rocked her Melody dress on a recent trip to Paris.
Also in Paris, French influencer Maddy Burciaga posted a picture in the dress and gained nearly 35,000 likes (more than all the Brit girls combined in fact).
What the ladies all had in common? They kept it simple with the rest of their outfit, because this is a dress that really does the talking. Want one of your own? The Boohoo Premium Melody Dress, £60, is available in sizes 8 to 14 right here.
