erdem lookalikes

Monday, 21 March 2011

The beautiful red lace dress from Erdem's Spring/Summer 2011 collection was bound to instigate copies and I am so so glad. I'll definitely be trying on the above Topshop number when I'm next out shopping, even if I don't purchase it. At £48, it's certainly a cheaper way to embrace the dress' beauty. There's also this cream lace skater dress from the petite section if red's not your colour.

I was originally going to wait to post about this because I've seen that some other very similar dresses from Reiss and French Connection are on sale soon but I just couldn't wait any longer. Besides, there are plenty of variations available already. There are sleeveless lace skater dresses like this cutie from Dorothy Perkins, but I'm particularly taken by their green belted number - I wore a similar dress in a rusty colour and belted it to a family thing the other week and loved it. If you have my Facebook, you'll see the pictures there.

If lace isn't your thing though, you could always go for a plain red skater dress like this one from missguided.co.uk or if you want a more demure-length and style, then this fuchsia dress from Next might be the way to go.

Obviously I don't know how everyone feels about copying the catwalk - and I'm certainly not one for doing it in general - but the Erdem dress is so sweet and flattering, that it seems a shame not to wear something like it. Besides, it does seem very Topshop. What do you think?

  1. Wow, beautiful dress from topshop! I love lace but I think the shoulders would bother me, for some reason I find puffy shoulder sleeves to look a bit dodgy one me! They make my shoulders look very broad.

  12. I love everything in Erdem's SS11 collection, the florals and lace are all so beautiful! I spotted this copy as well but thought £48 was still quite a lot (obvs not compared to Erdem but y'know...) xx
