Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Dresses for Spring Summer 2013

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania has a distinctive and funky range of dresses for the new season. Unmistakeably feminine, yet with a unique twist, this season’s signature look features draping, bright prints, strong primary shades and neon colours in fabrics that flatter your figure and accentuate your curves.

Some of my favourite dresses are pictured below.

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Lime Green Toga Dress Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Lime Green Toga Dress

Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Antoinette Rose Print Cotton Dress

The Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Antoinette cotton Dress is a pure cotton dress that’s perfect for the summmer. In a bold rose print design and featuring an A line skirt with a curved hemline, the dress is an easy to wear pull on fit. This botanical print takes its inspiration from the artwork of Pierre Joseph Redoute, but bear in mind that due to the print of the fabric, each dress is slightly different and the print design is positioned differently. I like the neckline on the dress and the almost not there cap sleeves. Complete the look with a bright primary coloured handbag and a pair of mid height courts.

This is a dress that is perfect for any occasion where looking ladylike is a must, such as a summer wedding or similar special occasion.

AllSaints Aura Dress, Diane Von Furstenberg Silver Sphere Clasp Clutch, Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Globe Shoes

AllSaints Aura Dress AllSaints Aura Dress

This is a quirky yet sexy party look. It’s young and fun, yet figure flattering too, and all the elements of the outfit can be easily teamed with other items for maximum use.

AllSaints Aura Dress

This AllSaints evening dress is structured dress with cleverly shaped black side panels to create the illusion of a tiny waist. The green part of the dress has an all over geometric design and there is a full length exposed zip at the back.

The dress is sleeveless with a sweetheart neckline, two slim shoulder straps and it falls to well above the knee. The style is bodycon and slim fitting, although it does fit true to size.

The neckline is suited to a necklace, and you could go for a standard pendant or a more edgy choker style.

This dress would also look good with classic black stilettos or a pair of black ankle boots.

Diane Von Furstenberg Silver Sphere Clasp Clutch Diane Von Furstenberg Silver Sphere Clasp Clutch

Diane Von Furstenberg Silver Sphere Clasp Clutch

This silver grey box clutch is a brand new style from Diane Von Furstenberg. It is made from gunmetal silver metallic “tweed” leather, but the most noticeable part of the bag is the asymmetrical clasp fastening at the top, consisting of a large and a small polished silver tone spheres. The clutch also has a matching detachable shoulder strap; the inside is gusseted and there is a slip pocket.

This clutch is perfect for adding polish to any party look, and in addition its neutral tones mean it will go with anything, except maybe gold tones, and would look good teamed with a long black dress for a black tie dinner.

Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Sapphire Glitter Globe Shoes Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Sapphire Glitter Globe Shoes

Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Sapphire Glitter Globe Shoes

A collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and the Brazilian Melissa shoe company, the Lady Dragon design is a modern day classic. It is brought out each season in different colours and with different embellishments including wings, pom-poms and hearts, although the globe design pictured on the left is perhaps the most fabulous.

The pictured pair are made from glitter infused sapphire plastic, and the sparkle as they catch the light. The irredescent globe is also reminiscent of a Christmas bauble and perfect to wear for a seasonal celebration.

These shoes are ideal for dancing the night away. They are made to be supremely comfortable, with a padded insole and adjustable ankle strap.

You could also team these shoes with ankle crop skinny jeans, such as the stiletto style by Current Elliott, for a smart evening or day wear look.

Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Red Dress, 3.1 Phillip Lim Bubble Clutch and Sam Edelman Niland Platforms

Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Red Dress Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Red Dress

This look is a 24/7, day thro’ to evening look which has as its centre piece the lipstick red Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Dress, accompanied by the 3.1 Phillip Lim Bubble Quilted Clutch and the Sam Edelman Niland Platforms, both in black.

Red and black is a dramatic and eye catching combination, ideal for wearing when you don’t have a second chance to make a first impression.

Vivienne Westwood Dahlia Red Dress

This sleeveless, above the knee dress is made from a stretchy jersey fabric which has a draped neckline. In true Anglomania style, the hemline is asymmetrical. The dress features a v back – which is not so low that you can’t wear a bra – and has a concealed back zip fastening.

I like this dress because it’s one of those 24 hour dresses which is ideal for style mavens on the go.

3.1 Phillip Lim Black Bubble Quilt Clutch 3.1 Phillip Lim Black Bubble Quilt Clutch

3.1 Phillip Lim Black Bubble Quilt Clutch

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that clutches are solely for evening wear. This new clutch from 3.1 Phillip Lim, with its gorgeously tactile finish and discrete gold hardware, is an oversized style which is also great for day wear too. The clutch is 38cm wide and it also has a zip pocket inside.

The bubble wrap effect is just on the front of the clutch – the reverse is plain black leather and there is a slip handle on the back so you can carry the bag in this way if you choose. You can also fold the top of the clutch forwards (if you haven’t over filled it) to display the contrasting black leather against the bubble leather.

Sam Edelman Black Niland Platform Court Shoes Sam Edelman Black Niland Platform Court Shoes

Sam Edelman Black Niland Platform Court Shoes

Sam Edelman has certainly become a popular shoe designer of late and the Niland is a classic style, which is frequently reintroduced, sometimes with variations to the colour or texture of the leather.

These shoes have a very high 5″ stiletto heel, which fortunately is mitigated by the equally impressive 1.5″ platform sole, so the shoes feel as though they just have 3.5″ heels. In a classic and timeless court style, Sam Edelman has added his signature originality by virtue of the the droplet shaped cut out detail at the toes, creating a more discrete version of a peep toe. Perhaps we should call it a glimpse toe!
