Here's how the Herve Leger-inspired bandage dress (above left) looks styled on a mannequin...
During a recent trip to H&M, I spotted a Herve Leger inspired bandage dress made out of a sort of stretchy sweater material gloriously displayed in the window, so I ducked in to try it on. It didn't work with my body type but I think it's a great find for under $50 (sorry I can't remember the exact price). Elsewhere in the store I admired all the new early spring arrivals, from perfect trench coats in black, coral or khaki to ironic floral print dresses to lots and lots of nude, taupe, beige and otherwise neutral garments, perfect for brightening up a late-winter wardrobe. My only problem with the neutral trend is that those washed out colors tend to make my skin look sallow. Maybe the right makeup and accessories can fix that, we shall see! More pics after the jump.
Here's how it looks on the rack...
Here's how it looks on me (wasn't really working with my rectangular build, but the construction seemed good)
The print on this floral dress reminded me of a Marc Jacobs dress from last season. Note the fierce gold shoes below.
I would not hesitate to buy a trench from H&M now as these "perfect" pieces often sell out early in the season.
More mannequins in the window. Love the styling!
A fab shoulder-embellished tunic. Looks shapeless on the rack but on the body it has dramatic dolman sleeves and you can cinch the waist with a belt.
A relaxed sequin jacket in a perfect spring hue
This ruffled little confection fit like a tube dress. Also comes in gray or muted purple
