I don’t know about you but I love texture and unique details in clothing so naturally I was drawn to this plissé dress from H&M. I feel like you don’t see this style of fabric very often (I studied Textile Sciences so this is the type of thing that really gets me excited). Fabric nerd.
There is something so great about a piece that needs little to no accessorizing because it’s interesting enough all on its own. This dress definitely fits the bill. I had to get the armholes taken in a bit as it was too gaping to wear to work, but now it fits perfectly and I can wear it for day or evening. I spend a lot of time taking things to the tailor and it’s worth every penny to have a wardrobe full of items that actually fit the way they are supposed to. No one fits perfectly right off the rack, except maybe supermodels. I digress…
I styled this dress for evening with these Nine West mules and a leopard clutch, but it works just as well with leather leggings and sneakers (stay tuned for this look). Cool texture, slits on both sides and a boatneck – what more could you possibly want?
