 Aqua is the new black

So with Peter Pilotto and Mary Katrantzou going crazy on this seasons catwalks, everyone is wondering how the highstreet will respond to this bright underwater-themed trend, with expensive fabrics difficult to source cheaply, its no wonder the highstreet has been a bit reluctant to jump on this fashion band waggon.

It seems that the only highstreet front runner that was willing to take on this trend without any help from Mary herself, was Zara, with what I have to admit is a beautifully toned-down and reasonably priced aqua print dress.

This is a trend to be attempted only by the fashion forward and the women with big enough mulberry wallets that they can afford a Mary Katrantzou original, however this dress can be worn by pretty much anyone, and you are guarenteed to stand out and have all eyes on you.
