It’s easy enough to like a trend when the gorgeous Alexa Chung is wearing it but I have always rather liked the buttoned-up look. See her here in Chanel.
Vintage website Atelier Mayer recently sold a Balmain dress from the 1960s in a similar style (see below). This was a dress I bought in my mind. My alter ego wears this kind of thing to work in a Parisian fashion house with a tape measure draped round her neck. It’s prim, it’s done right up to the top button and it might even make you want to start bossing all sorts of boys around
And they wouldn't be able to do a thing about it.
