Wolford Fatal Dress

Wolford Fatal Dress in Black, White, Yellow, Pink, Blue, Grey, Green, Purple, Red or Brown

The Wolford Fatal Dress is a seamless velvet tube “Jessica Rabbit” dress which can be worn as a skirt (pencil or mini), a top, a short dress or a long dress. It can even be worn as a wide belt. The dress comes in a total of 14 different colours which I have only been able to summarise in the title above.

Fear not, the dress is supplied with a style guide that explains how to get the different looks. It’s also worth noting that then you wear the material doubled over, curves are held in and the dress has a body sculpting effect, like Spanx.

Available in sizes Extra Small (6-8), Small (10-12) and Medium (12-14)

Fabric and care: 93% nylon, 7% elastane

Style note: This dress was featured in the Daily Mail as a dress that thinks it’s a skirt, a top and a belt. It would make a great dress to take on holiday as you can get so many looks from the one item, and the array of colours to choose from is mind boggling. For a body sculpting effect, you will need to wear the material doubled or tripled over. Check out some alternative looks below (the bra top is not part of the dress).
