First Dibs: J.W. Anderson Fall 2013 Look 27

There’s a reason Topshop loves British designer J.W. Anderson; just take a look at the above mini-dress from his Fall/Winter 2013 collection. The richness of the dark blue velvet, mock turtleneck, and skin-tight skirt remind us of the original supers of the ’80s and early ’90s—sexy enough for a Robert Palmer video or Steven Meisel shoot. The exaggerated, decorative detailing gives it a more modern architectural edge and the white slip-on sneakers a casual cool. Time to tone our legs!
