Unbowed. Unbent. Unbroken. Yeah, we can dig that motto. We might belong to House Lannister and House Stark here at White Hot Room but we both have a healthy respect for the Martells down in Dorne. (Arianne and the Sand Snakes: BAMFs or BAMFs?)
Dorne is a hot land, the exact opposite of Winterfell so it makes sense that their fashion senses would be quite different. Their sigil and colours: the sun and spear and red and orange, say a lot about their house as does their motto. I considered the Sand Snakes (Oberyn Martell’s bastard daughters) when I made this post as they are members of the house in everything but name in a way that most bastards are not. Colour was something that I definitely paid attention to with the house colours, black, white, and gold but it was not something that I let limit my choices. Many of the looks have a casual ease to them while others definitely show a bit more skin, something I think the Martells would be right at home doing, (Margaery Tyrell, eat your heart out.)
We’ll start out with this dress by Prabal Gurung’s Fall Ready-to-Wear 2013 show. There’s a fabulous ease to this dress while still looking chic that would make it ideal for Dorne.
If any house is going to be able to work a strapless peplum top and capri pant, it is absolutely the Martells. Both of these looks by Christian Siriano would be perfect fits. I could especially see Nymeria or Sarella rocking these.
Speaking of the Sand Snakes, just try and tell us that this red dress by Reem Acra isn’t right up their alley.
