The IT Dress from Stella McCartney Resort 2015

It is official – I’ve found the must-have summer dress.  Granted it has only just hit the runway as part of the Stella McCartney Resort 2015 Collection, but something tells me we will be seeing it everywhere.  As I browsed through the Resort collections, this look from McCartney stood out for its vintage aesthetic of a handkerchief dress paired with modern detailing and cut.  There is a clever use of patterns, playful hemlines, and beautiful banded bodices with sophisticated cutouts.

Stella McCartney Resort 2015It seems that season in and season out, Stella McCartney creates “it” looks that are loved by the fashion set, celebrities and the adoring public alike.  And while the collection may be resort (and this dress seems almost perfect for dinner out during a beach escape), I also love the idea of wearing this dress into summer’s waning months.  And here in Singapore it is the perfect dress year round!

Interestingly enough, I don’t always jump on the mixed patterned bandwagon, but the ease of this dress translates.  As a result, it feels both effortless and ridiculously cool, without the overthought vibe often associated with multi-patterned styles.  Also, even with the cutouts, something tells me this will look amazing on women with many different body shapes (the skirt is aligned and each bodice’s cutouts look rather strategic).

 

What do you think of this look from the Stella McCartney Resort 2015 Collection?  Does it say “it” dress to you?

  10. I agree, and think this style will look really lovely on diverse women’s styles. I would definitely wear it. There’s something so special about it with the black top portion that I love.

  11. Indeed, this dress is IT. Its fabulous. I love the patterns and the way the fabric hangs. The lines lead the eye every where. It looks comfortable and fashionable. Can I have two??

  12. Well it’s pretty but what it says to me is NO BOOB SUPPORT! I cannot explain why but the colours of the dress on the left appeal to me.

  20. The fit and the style of this dress is fantastic! Thanks for your opinion on my last post…hope your week is going well.

  21. The design and cut of the dress is really unusual and beautiful, so I’m with you on guessing we’ll be seeing much more of it this summer.. although I’m personally not a fan of clashing prints, so I be seen in this particular design! Lovely post! :)
