This red dress Bottoni Oro was not my favourite when I saw the Versace H&M collection online. The Bottoni Oro pieces did not jump out at you at first sight and were maybe overshadowed by the flamboyancy of the printed Stampa pieces, but sometimes you have to put more simple pieces on to appreciate their true glory.
I feel the oriental Stampa dress wears you whereas you wear this dress.
This is now actually on of my favourite pieces and like the other Bottoni Oro pieces really is a good investment buy as it's classic but still makes a statement. I can see me loving it for years just like a faithful LBD.
I chose to wear it to a Christmas party teamed with nude shoe boots and a brown-nude toned clutch. I think the dress looks classier teamed with nude rather than black due to the sheer crochet panelling though I think if you want a more dressed down look you could pair it with a leather some black opaques and black shoe/ankle boots.
