Kirbee Dress Spotto
We thought this summer we'd go all-out señorita style with this perfectly ruffled jersey dress, which we have also released as a top in the same shape. She's part of our Golden Apple range and is sure to make you feel fancy (while being incredibly comfy!)!
FEATURES: This sweet little dress is inspired by 50's Mexican styles which were quite popular for wedding and day dresses. It has a lovely soft ruffle which creates a sleeve, without being too full or gathered. We love the simple fit of the under bodice, which feels lovely and cool to wear, much like a singlet. We love the simple gathered skirt which fits well through the bottom, as well as providing a beautiful length sleeve which feels so lovely and cool to wear, as well as looking so pretty for summer. The skirt length sit at the knee on most heights. We love the soft draped shoulder shape which can be worn down off the shoulder, as well as as a simple rounded neckline which is slightly squared. We love a feminine cut for summer and this one is perfect for the beach or garden party. We love the reinforced front panel which sits beautifully because it isn't stretchy the whole way through the front. This means it will sit flat and the gathers will not try to rearrange themselves unevenly when you wear it. We love a good soft jersey dress for it's comfort factor, but this piece we also tweaked to perfection, we wanted her to be the most perfect version of herself she could be, flattering, cool and comfy! And of course, she has handy side pockets! The back neckline is soft scoop, which creates a nice shape at the back but can be worn straight across if you want it to be off the shoulder.
HOW TO WEAR: We love this dress as your summer staple piece, because its so hard to find a dressy jersey piece which could be worn for occasions but also worn to the beach. We love that this cut is flattering on the bust, as it cuts at a higher bust point than a lot of these ruffled tops generally do, meaning the ruffle wont hide your bust and emphasise it, but will cut your bust at a flattering point that still shows your waist and bodice silhouette. It is also so soft and beautiful where the ruffle creates a rounded shape across the front, and a nice capped sleeve. We love the soft finish at the neckline which keeps the ruffle sitting rather flat and the elastic in the sleeve section means it can also be worn down off the shoulder, senorita style. We love the softly gathered skirt and side pockets, which create a nice a-line shape with being bulky or too full at the hip. We've added a nice little free tie which can cinch the waist in with a bow at the front, or be threaded through and worn like a flat belt across the waist and tied to the back for a more streamline look. We of course have also added some nice little secure belt loops at the waist so you can wear a fancy belt with her to dress her up. We love this Kirbee dress because it is a feminine cut without being too fussy, and we love that she is SO cool to wear in the heat of summer. Pair her with a cute pair of sandals or wedges, a brooch or chunky earrings and she's good to go! We cant wait to be swanning about all summer looking cool, calm and collected in our new favourite Kirbee dress, we hope you love her too.
