The $575 dress is described as, “A star garment that falls comfortably about the female silhouette, enhanced by a contrasting polka dot jacquard knit. The plissé effect of the skirt and the elasticated flounces at the cuffs emphasize the femininity of the garment, while the lining and the side zip finish the now practical garment.”
