The history of the dress combination
For the first time a sundress on thin strap trimmed with lace was demonstrated by actress Jean Harlow at the beginning of the 20th century. The rest of the fair sex decided to use it as an evening dress only in 1960, when Andre Courreges published pictures of this incredibly sexy dress in Vogue magazine. In those days it was quite modest, and its length reached the floor.
A further march of this very sexy outfit to the masses was promoted by Madonna, who was accustomed to shock the public. With her light hands, the dress combination is finally becoming a casual outfit. Seeing the success of this piece of clothing, Calvin Klein, and behind him, and other designers have made it an integral part of fashion shows. So, in 1996, Princess Diana herself showed off her gorgeous figure. To exit, she chose a dark blue to the floor elegant dress on lace black spaghetti straps.
Tip! For some reason, it is believed that the dress combination is included in the category of youth clothing. However, in combination with a jacket or a volume sweater, it will decorate a woman and older.
Today this piece of clothing is made from a variety of fabrics and is combined with all kinds of clothing. The dress combination is just perfect for showing off the sexual curves of the female body at evening receptions, cocktails, in restaurants and bars. In this case, it is made of thin fabrics such as chiffon, silk or satin, as well as metallized fabrics. For everyday wear, denser fabrics are chosen: linen, cotton, velvet or brocade.
This season, the combination dress can be either easily flowing through the body, or carried out in the form of a corset, decorated with voluminous textured or, on the contrary, thin, almost imperceptible laces, fur, lightest feathers, stones, peyette or rhinestones. Especially wins such an outfit in a single performance. Its length today can vary from maxi to mini caller.
So, Victoria Beckham, who loves to show off her figure, just recently appeared in public in a very frank lace dress with straps. She supplemented her image with elegant black boats with a thin hairpin.
Nicole Scherzinger demonstrated an even more courageous and sensual outfit from satin and chiffon cape. Asia Argento for the festival in Cannes chose a more sophisticated outfit in gray satin floor. This creation from Louis Vuitton has been complemented by a kimono cloak and matching hairdo.
Kylie Minogue showed the public a lilac leopard outfit trimmed with black lace during a regular walk through the city.
Indeed, why only the elect have the right to admire her chiseled figure?
Tip! Holders of voluminous forms can easily combine this type of underwear with a jacket or a long cardigan draped over their shoulders. Dress in this case should be semi-loose or loose. Put on this outfit for the first date – let your man immediately lose his head.
Where to wear?
Naturally, this form-fitting outfit with an open top to the office with a strict dress code, even in combination with a modest jacket, should not be worn. But, if it is successful to combine such a dress with other things or to sew from dense linen or cotton, it is quite possible to use it in everyday life.
Since in modern fashion a combination of styles is welcome, there can be an incredible variety of combinations. With a well-thought-out combination of forms and a game of contrasts, for example, in combination with a black jacket and coarse shoes, it will perfectly fit even into a casual image. Such a democratic outfit can be put on for a walk, shopping or watching a movie. If you combine such a dress with a white T-shirt and a short choker necklace, you will get the style of the 90s.
A more restrained style involves a combination of this seductive and feminine attire with a strict jacket or waistcoat. For maximum effect, it is better to use plain fabrics for sewing. This image can be complemented with suede booties or pumps.
Tip! Even opponents of open and seductive outfits can demonstrate this trend in tandem with closed T-shirts or turtlenecks.
Accessories and decor
In principle, accessories can be very diverse – from the simplest jewelry and light handbags to earrings with flickering diamonds and leather products from Gucci or Chanel. The elegant waist can be emphasized with a thin, or, on the contrary, wide strap.
However, since the combination dress, especially for creating evening looks, is already decorated with lace ruffles, rhinestones or bugles, when choosing other jewelry you should observe the measure. Additions to this image should be a minimum. For example, as an additional decor, you can use only a classic pearl string or a set of earrings and a necklace. In combination with lace this will be enough.
Tip! For a high society party, combine a long dress-combination with a fur cape or a colored shawl – and the eyes of the men will be fixed only in your direction.
We combine with a t-shirt, turtleneck or long sleeve
Of course, the combination dress is worn separately. But the line between evening and daytime clothes in the current fashion is gradually erased. Therefore, if you wish, today you can easily combine it with anything: pants, coat, cardigan, jacket, turtleneck, and even a men’s shirt.
