When it comes to dresses I’m a huge Norma Kamali fan. I’m into dresses with style, that are flattering to women, and comfortable. Her high volume of black and white patterns and designs always sucks me in. You see, I have a major thing for black and white clothing, so this dress was a no brainer for me. Adding colorful accessories to black and white clothing is my thing. As soon as I saw this dress I thought red purse!
What especially appeals to me is the ease of this dress. It’s easy to just slip on over your head, and easy to wear throughout the day. Not to mention super easy to clean, just pop it into the washer and dryer. I’m thinking this would be a great travel dress because the material is so carefree and doesn’t wrinkle! Pair this dress with pumps, sandals, or booties and you’ve got a great look. I’m wearing it with my with my Vince Camuto booties that I seem to be wearing almost every day now that fall is here! I’m getting my money’s worth out of those babies! The neckline is also perfect for a statement necklace, I can’t wait to play around with different ways to style this dress up. I know I’ll be wearing it lots this season.
The shirred waistline is so flattering and feminine. Like many of Norma Kamali’s designs the dress has a raw, unheeded edge, and with the fused banding there is no risk of fraying – it just gives a cool modern look to the garments. The black and white plaid pattern is stunning and perfect for fall. So on trend. While browsing around on Revolve I noticed an awesome looking blazer in this pattern!
The fit of the dress runs true to size, for reference I’m wearing a small and I’m 5’8″. If your in-between sizes the stretch should give you comfort, so you have a little leeway. Fit wise it isn’t quite as tight as you see in photos 5 and 7. It was just the pose, it actually hangs softer off the hips. Revolve also offers free shipping – yay! Paying for shipping seriously ticks me off. Outfit details below.
