The Dress Code

It’s any woman’s go-to uniform –that slip-and-go versatile dress that can flawlessly dictate mood, style and purpose. Varying hemlines can shift a look from fun to flirty, while the dangerous dip of the neckline can mean an extra dose of sex appeal and a striking, curve-revealing silhouette can command power and attraction. And so it can’t be helped that for any occasion, whether simple or grand, that a dress becomes a default style solution.

Mini Dresses

For days when tees and cut-offs just won’t do, that’s when a charming mini dress comes into play. Worn with cute flats or sandals, or gussied up with a belt and heels, a mini dress is perfect for flirty brunches and night outs with the girls, to weekend cocktails or romantic dinners out.

Maxi Dresses

These ankle-skimming, figure-flattering maxi dresses can effortlessly go from brunch to beach weddings, and any breezy occasion in between. These utterly feminine dresses can be toned down with flat sandals, or elevated with heels and a statement bag for more formal affairs.

Midi Dresses

Stylishly blending the unobtrusive sass of the mini with the coy elegance of the maxi, the midi dress with its graceful length looks good with flat sandals, works well with a trusty pair of sneakers and feels feminine and fashion-forward with a minimal, spindly heel –all appropriate for casual Fridays, lunch dates and happy hour.

Floral Dresses

Weather is warming up, signaling the rebirth of spring dresses with fun and feminine floral prints. Whether tea-length or longer, these floral dresses are staples in garden parties, summer weddings and evening events that call for color and bold patterns. And with shoes and accessories kept minimal, the beautiful print will definitely bloom.
