Demi Drawstring Dress Long Black
This winter we wanted a dress which could easily be layered, looked effortlessly cool and was super comfy to boot! May we present Demi, our newest casual dress available in two lengths, with a cute drawstring waist and of course, pockets!
FEATURES: Demi features a lovely deep v-neck which is flattering on a bust, but works well with layers underneath too. She ticks all the right boxes, including an a-line skirt, pockets, a working drawstring waist which can be worn lower or higher and she is made from very comfy french terry fabric which is a thicker weight cotton stretch with more structure than a t-shirt. She's perfect for winter with layers and we will be wearing ours with our Clementine Cardies, Scarlett skivvies, Sybil tops and long sleeve Autumn tops underneath. She is also a loose cut through the body and can be worn in summer as a sleeveless dress. The working drawstring channel is a fantastic detail that means you can have control of the amount of gathering and where you like the waist to sit. Blouse over the bodice for a more high waisted look, or loosen the drawstring to wear this one lower and straighter. We have also released her in a longer and shorter length to please both parties, but we are loving both lengths with stocking and boots this winter. Shorter length sits past the knee on most frames, longer length sits at the mid calf.
HOW TO WEAR: This fun, classic shape looks great teamed with your favourite pair of sandals, clogs or perhaps stockings and boots for the colder days. We love Demi worn with our basic tops underneath as we have given her a generous fit so a skinny layer underneath is the perfect combo for winter. Our Clementine Cardies are also a perfect shape to wear over these dresses, or you could also layer some soft merino layers underneath, there is plenty of room in this cut. Our short length Demi will be wonderful with knee high boots, but Demi in the long length works perfectly with ankle length boots or even a small heel to dress her up. We can also imagine our longer length Demi being popular for summer as the 100% cotton fabric we have used will be cool and breezy with just the right amount of structure. Take Demi for a spin and see if you can find a easier, more comfy dress! We dare you.
