If there's one ultra-niche item we were surprised to witness the rise of last year, we'd have to go with unusual green dresses (particularly printed ones). Perhaps we should have caught on years ago—remember back in 2014 when one of the most iconic Zara purchases of all time became a green tropical-print sundress? In 2017, a few emerald success stories came to light: Réalisation's Violette frock (a delicate floral wrap in pea-green) became ubiquitous with #OOTD posts from celebrities and influencers alike.
Then there's Balenciaga's Strangled Print dress—expensive yet omnipresent on the global fashion week streets, worn in a multitude of different and unexpected ways. Kitri's green-satin wrap dress had the same effect across social media at the tail end of last year, Tibi's mint-green plissé number brightened up many a high-profile wardrobe, and Alessandra Rich's incredibly luxe take on tea dresses includes a green style that's been hugely popular with influencers and regular women alike. You get the picture.
It all goes quite some way to explaining why this green button-up maxi dress from ASOS has the fashion crowd waiting with baited breath. And finally, the dress is back in stock. Insiders will have see it in lookbooks ahead of the launch, but there's also been interest generated thanks to an ASOS-produced video showing the modern way to wear a tea dress (see the still above) that included this beauty before it was even available. At just £55, we wouldn't be surprised if it sells out in an instant again. Scroll to shop it (and a few similar styles) now.
Sweet as is, and even cooler over jeans.
