Fantasy Frocks

Boys (and girls) have fantasy football. Women have fantasy frocks!

Sometimes it is fun to actually wear costume-like outfits to work. I’m thinking air stewardess or French Riviera matron… Nothing too weird.

Browsing the dresses on the UK Matches web site reminded me of how I used to like wearing costumes to work sometimes. I thought they were funny, but also a bit poking my nose at the stupidity of smart clothes.

This Emilia Wickstead dress is so Mad Men. It would be hard to wear this and not drink a scotch straight up at lunch time.


Or this 70s Diane Von Furstenberg number is fab. I would wear this and be Jane Fonda.


This Vivienne Westwood frock is just so British vogue. You could only drink tea in this dress.


For a change of pace, I would switch to Helmut Lang, and feel very design driven. I couldn’t do any actual work in this dress. Just networking and social media updates.


Finishing off with an Alexander McQueen frock which looks like a great way to dress like a hippie, and get away with it. Must be worn with hair parted in the middle.
