Navy Silk Drop-waist Dress

Hello, beautiful. Let me tell you about one of my favorite silhouettes- the drop waist dress. A departure from constricting form-fitting styles, the drop waist dress gives you freedom to move, dance, play, and keep up with your little ones. The drop waist is exactly what the name suggests- the waist band of the dress drops below the natural waist, elongating the body. Thisย Splendid version has smocking at the waistband, creating a blouson bodice (hello, forgiving and figure flattering!) and a flirty and flowy skirt. Made of a butter-soft silk in an indigo hue, this dress is a dream to wear and will take you from play date to dinner date. For added flare, I paired it with navy suede lace-up flats, my favorite blue banded hat and rose gold sunnies (because every look needs a little shine).

What’s your favorite silhouettes? Please share, I’d love to know.
