A pair of fabulous dresses, inspired by a great Michael Kors design, these dresses will work best in fluid, drapey fabrics like heavy rayon, washed or double crepe, silky jersey or even a stable double or single knit.
Semi-fitted A-line Dress has faux-wrap or scoop-front neckline, deep waistband with optional wrap-around ties and a center back zipper entry. Choose from elbow-length scarf-style sleeves or flared full-length sleeves gathered onto a cuff. Skirt finishes at the knee or at mid-calf length.
Wear these gloriously flattering Dresses for work or play, dressed up or down for day or night. Mix up those sleeve, hem and neckline details for maximum fashion mileage!
