The question of what to wear a dress combination, interests many. After all, this rather provocative type of clothing in 2019 year again becomes incredibly relevant. Fortunately, modern fashion has no standards, so you have the right to use the most unusual and multi-layered combinations.
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, is not worth wearing. 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 90-x style.
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.
In the cold season, the combination can be successfully combined with a bright-colored turtleneck, a sweatshirt (a product without a hood and pockets) and a hoodie (a sweater with a hood), with a snow-white long-sleeved jumper, as did Emma Roberts or a sports jacket like Kim Kardashian. Warm and at the same time incredibly seductive. Do not forget to add the image of brogues, loafers and oxfords.
Tip! In the cold season, stylists propose replacing light silk and satin with denser velvet, wool or even leather outfits. Your dress at the same time will not be less seductive.
Dress combination + sweater
As an autumn lookbook dress with straps, it is quite possible to combine a pullover. It is better if it seems a little big. For example, the one that was provided in its collections by Kenzo and Nili Lotan. This outfit is especially effective in basic black and white colors.
A short combination will look perfect with a shirt of a free cut. Wear a long piece of clothing with a short blouse or a fitted shirt of medium length.
You can wear a dress as down, under a shirt, and on top. If you want to hide any flaws in the shape or completeness, the first option, of course, would be more acceptable.
Tip! The original image can be obtained with a combination with a shirt, the floors of which are tied in a knot.
Combination with pants
This spicy outfit can be worn with black or colorful pants, cigarettes, leggings, and wide and soft pants or capri pants.
The bold black and naive pink (these are the colors used in the last century) will give even more sex appeal. Well, the fabric, smoothly sliding through the body, will be able to turn the head to anyone.
Not a long combination can be put on with a trouser two-piece or three-piece suit. This outfit can be demonstrated even in the office – unless, of course, your dress code is pretty loose.
An excellent lesson in reincarnation of this type of dress in stylish clothes was given by designer Riccardo Tisci. His most delicate combinations in combination with the rigid forms of trouser suits look like a sketch of the thinnest pen on thick cardboard.
Tip! You do not know what to wear a dress combination of velvet? Combine it with anything: a organza cape, fur, leather, knitwear, or even a garment of shiny or metallic fabric.
Dress combination and cardigan or jacket
The “warm” and stylish option will be the combination of our elegant toilet with a long and voluminous cardigan, large accessories, rough boots or jackboots. You can replace the cardigan jacket-sleeveless. In this case, you will get a more rigorous, “assembled” and constructive image. You can also combine a dress and a cardigan with comfortable sneakers or moccasins. A bulk bag and massive watches will help to complete this look.
To create a glamorous style, a bolero jacket trimmed with lace or a short coat is more suitable. Evening shoes can be trimmed with lace. This outfit will be perfectly combined with a small clutch on a chain. Another evening option is a combination dress, a floral print bomber jacket, complemented by platform sandals and a bag over the shoulder.
Tip! To go out, you can wear a combination dress with a transparent one-color dress or a dress with a print. A single-color version can be added with bright and eye-catching color accessories.
What to wear with a dress combination: with a jacket made of leather or denim
It turns out that black matte skin just looks perfect with elegant lace and satin ribbons. If we add coarse shoes, spikes, smoky eyes make-up to a similar image, then we get a very piquant grunge style that combines rebellious outfit with light sex appeal.
In general, this image works well and looks very organic with any kind of shoes, including sports. Daring leather jacket can be combined with motorcycle boots or jackboots.
What else can wear a dress with a combination of lace in the cold season?
A bohemian look can be obtained by wearing a very large denim piece on the combination. The contrast of volumetric top and delicate dress will help you look more fragile and sophisticated. Try also to combine a lace dress with a men’s jacket, and one more image will be added to your collection.
Tip! A set of a short combination dress, a pencil skirt and a jacket or jacket will be a completely democratic look for casual wear.
Throw on top coat or fur coat
After the appearance of Elizabeth Taylor in a lace combination and a fur coat in 1960, the use of such a dress for publication has ceased to be nonsense. After all, flowing silk is incredibly well combined with luxurious fur. Capes, vests, fur coats from it – you can use everything that suits you and to your liking.
For such an evening dress, products with any length of nap are acceptable, from mink or sable to a luxurious black-brown fox. As an alternative, you can use products made of artificial fur. Try not to overload the image and think carefully about the choice of parts and accessories.
Tip! If you go to emphasize the dignity of your figure, choose only plain options. Color prints will delay attention.
