The Boomerang function on Instagram has pretty much been every fashion girl’s dream come true ever since its inception. Now, we’ll be able to capture the requisite #OOTD and that amazing new It bag we’ve just scored with all its glory – in motion.
Having a fun, preppy pick-me-up snap may offer some light fashion relief amongst a sea of stiff masqueraded IG posts. And in order to make the most Boomerang impact, we need to go the distance with our sartorial choices.
With that, we’ve rounded up our top 10 favourite dresses with ruffles, major volume, embellishments and of course, fringing. Ah, layers upon layers of fringing…we’ve finally got an excuse to live out a sartorial fairytale on a daily basis as we #doitforthegram with these breathtaking frocks.
This multicolored plissé-silk dress of ballooning proportions is fitted at the bust and waist while loose at the hips, making for a super flattering cut that’ll accentuate all the right places without looming near ‘maternity dress’ territory. Added bonus: These ornamented tiers of lace trimming and delicate silk will look spectacular as it trails your movement on your Boomerang shot.
Roberto Cavalli Gown, $7,083
This is a dress that’s quintessentially stitched together with twinkling sequins, so it’s well-nigh needless to point out that you’ll keep the interest of your IG followers blazing with this glistening number. Embellished with crystals, gold leaf beads and imitation pearls, this glamorous gown will resemble a sky full of stars as you shift about for your snap.
INGIE dress, $2,950
This stunning flapper dress, redolent of Daisy Buchanan’s iconic glinting silver column gown, has officially renewed our love for The Roaring Twenties. But you don’t have to be a flashy ‘Gatsby Girl’ in order to appreciate the kinetic appeal of this fringed dress; the neutral off-white colour palette and subdued paneled fringing makes for a tasteful, everyday number that’ll bring your Boomerang take to the next level.
NK Fringe Dress, $2,042
This gilded gown is yet another nod to the glamorous Jazz Age with its art deco motif which was carefully crafted with chain and bead embellishments. This sequin-emblazoned number will catch the light and glimmer majestically if you were to take a Boomerang shot in a darker setting; like say, at the bar with the girls or at a dinner party perhaps?
Roberto Cavalli gown, $3,134
Crafted from luxurious silk-crepon fabric, this gown features plissé detailing looks like it had just came straight out of the ‘festival-style‘ department. This diaphanous loose-flowing silhouette is complemented by tassels that are braided into the weavings of the dress. Did someone just say ‘head-turner’, or was that our insatiable lust over this number speaking?
Chloé Dress, $3,924
Exude the celebratory retro vibes of the 70s with this hippie-luxe number that’s on our list of essentials for a weekend getaway (an impending one, we hope). Featuring an incredibly lightweight crochet knit in a casual racerback silhouette, this macramé hem dress will move beautifully as you walk. Just be careful not to trip over the floor-grazing fringe.
Missoni Dress, $1,472
What do you get when you filter the elegance and poise of the great Imperial China of yesteryear through a modern lens? This ornate olive tulle and satin number from Marchesa Notte, that’s what. Adorned with sequins and crystals that peek through lustrous layers of fringing, this gown will gleam with resplendence when you capture it on your gram.
Marchesa Notte gown, $1,112.77
For a look that’s understated enough for the office with just a dash of playful elements, turn to this powder pink number with feather trimmings. This ruched satin-crepe dress is the perfect cross between sophistication and cheekiness. Give it a little shake for a tongue-in-cheek Boomerang take.
Mikael Aghal Dress, $485
