Style notes

Every season requires a black dress and this is the essential sleeveless black cotton shirtdress. A drop-waist creates the allusion of a lengthened torso which overall makes the wearer appear longer and leaner and the “skater skirt” A line offers the perfect feminine flare, without being too girlie. This dress is designed to have the most flattering lines possible, while our signature clever design details like the hidden button at the bust (to prevent gaping), french seams (to give a luxurious finish) and double hem (to ensure the hem falls smoothly) make it the perfect summer black cotton dress that you'll reach for year after year.

Dress it up with some statement jewellery, look pulled together (but not overdressed) with leather slides, or keep it casual with flip flops.
