This ’50s inspired outfit features a red floral print dress with a pinch-pleat detail on the bodice and black buttons down the front. The petite white pointed collar complements the carved-out shoulder design, which gives the illusion of a halter style from the front. The gathered knee-length skirt is trimmed in white lace and the black genuine leather belt has a working slide so it can be paired with different outfits. The sinamay straw hat is the perfect accessory, with a polka-dot silk charmeuse band that ties in a knot on the side. Small belt loops keep the belt in place and the dress closes neatly in the back with a thin strip of velcro.
