Remember that incredible monochrome dress Adele posed in on Instagram back in September? You know the one – black figure-hugging off-the-shoulder dress adorned with larger than life white silk taffeta ruffles that twist into rosettes at the front.
Not only was it a truly knockout look for the singer, the Instagram post consisted of three pictures, the last of which confirmed her relationship with boyfriend Rich Paul, the high-profile American sports agent. Naturally, the post attracted a casual 8 million likes.
But back to that dress. By haute couture label Schiaparelli, it is nothing short of a masterpiece but, as such, it of course comes with a price tag to match. Nevertheless, the high street is always on hand to help us mere mortals emulate the A-listers’ style, and we’re pleased to say that & Other Stories has come to the rescue in helping us to recreate the ‘Adele dress’.
While not exactly the same as Adele’s, & Other Stories’ Off Shoulder Tulle Midi Dress is a pretty close dupe. With a fitted black off-the-shoulder midi-length dress, it features a statement ruffle of white tulle around the top of the dress, creating a not dissimilar look to Adele’s Schiaparelli dress.
The dress would be perfect for Christmas parties and any winter weddings in the diary. With such a statement feature, we’d accessorise this ‘Adele dress’ lookalike with low key accessories – think black strappy heels and minimal jewellery that lets the dress do all the talking.
Fancy going for the full-on Adele look? Then pair your dress with statement gold and pearl drop earrings, leaving the rest of the jewellery at home. As for make-up? It has to be the signer-songwriter’s signature bold cat-eye eyeliner flick – luckily we know exactly how to recreate that with the exact eyeliner Adele uses on herself.
