Queenie is our shape with a little bit of sass and a whole lot of cute! She features panelled seams and front pockets with a slight fit and flare shape which completely flatters and makes you feel a million dollars. We have only ran her a handful of times and she is now available in the Everybody range!
FEATURES: Queenie is a similar fit to our old friend Cadet dress, but she is a slightly more feminine flared cut with less structure, a flared skirt and a panelled body which skims all the right places. She is perfect for layering going into winter and we can't wait to be wearing ours with our Clementine Cardigans and lots of fun accessories. The V neck shape with panelled bodice is a lovely fit on a range of bust lines. We love her perfectly fitted skirt which has a lovely A-line but isn't too full either. There is a nice big hem on the skirt which means it sits perfectly and is weighed down by the weight of this panel on the hem, much like our Julia skirt. Our panelled body will fit well as the waistline is not set in so with flatter a long or short waisted torso and can be belted at your natural waist. We love the 40’s inspired shape of this little dress which features front pockets in the panelling and a centre back short zip for easy access. We also love the V neck which looks slightly mod with a skivvy underneath. We have made Queenie in a range of prints and fabrics so there is sure to be something that will suit your wardrobe and become a firm staple piece.
HOW TO WEAR: Queenie is the perfect in-between season dress. She works well as a shift shape without any layers on warmer days but also works perfectly all winter long in the lovely weights we have chosen, as there is a good drape but also she works nicely with something underneath as the shape isn't too fitted to layer with merino or a fine knit underneath. Queenie is a nice fit and flare shape which has a panelled bodice for a nice fit on your bust, so the line of this dress looks wonderful with a belt and accessories.
We love Queenie worn like a pinafore, as the slightly shorter length looks fantastic with tights and boots, but can be dressed up for a night on the town too. She is a nice simple shape to wear to work, and we think she will be perfect layered with a crisp white shirt underneath. We’ll be wearing ours with printed tops underneath and pattern clashing fun stripes to wear with our Queenie dresses. Accessorise with a brooch, statement necklace or even a metallic belt and you're good to go for any occasion!
