Simple but oh-so-flattering Dress, designed for knits, crepe, rayon and jersey with a little stretch. Button-front Dress has front & back Princess seams, long sleeves with classic shirt cuffs and an easy-to-wear collar & rever. Skirt is gently flared and finishes just below the knee. Narrow self ties at the back add extra definition at the waist. Wear this great dress in a simple dark knit with slim knee-high boots for fall or winter, or try it in a pretty print with dainty kitten heels for a go-anywhere spring-summer outfit. Try this dress with contrast collar & cuffs, and team it with a serious watch, a statement bag and high-heeled Mary-Janes for a fabulously feminine but office-appropriate look.
