Zippers take a back seat to no one! This notion, whose purpose is to close a garment, is now THE focal point. Design houses like 3.1 Phillip Lim can solely be held responsible for being innovative when it comes to zippers. Maybe they had an extra supply of zippers. Who knows, but what we do know is that they created a much-desired look. I applaud Phillip Lim for using zippers. This is what fashion is all about. Making unconventional items conventional. Fashion forward celebrities such as Beyonce, Solange and Aubrey O’Day have been spotted wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim zipper dress or skirt. Could you imagine an outfit made of other notions like Velcro or snaps umm that wouldn’t be very appealing.
Solange and Aubrey are wearing the same winding zipper dress, but in different colors. The dress alone is a whopping $894.00. Ladies please note the difference belting a dress makes. We all have a have waist…..no matter what size you are accentuate it!! Beyonce chose to wear the 3.1 Phillip Lim zipper riffle skirt, which retails for $ 675.00. I don’t know about you but if I spend that much for a zipper dress I want platinum zippers.
If you are daring and bold enough to tackle this look GoJane makes a leopard print zipper dress for $24.80. If you don’t want to mix too many fashion trends together (like the print and zipper) try the denim zipper dress also by GoJane for $25.90. Forever 21 makes a black tank dress with a zipper front for the very affordable price of $13.80.
