I’ve always loved the 70’s style. Any chance I get to wear a retro dress with a pair of high boots, sign me up! 🙂 I was in Banana Republic the other day to look at some of the new collection (in particular a little cute blue flare dress which you’ll probably see later) when I saw this dress out of the corner of my eye. OMG. It was Insta-Love!
This dress is called the Vee Neck Tie Waist Dress, and you won’t be able to find it on the BR site by typing in “Suede Dress” in their search window for some reason. However, you’ll be able to find it by searching through all of the dresses or just go (here).
The Tie at the waist is extremely long. Which gives you the option of doubling it over (like I did) or tying it snugly at the waist. Either way the cut of the dress is designed to accentuate your figure.
I absolutely love how this dress fits. For being a leather dress, the Banana Republic Vee Neck Tie Waist Dress is surprisingly cool to wear. I guess that’s because the suede is fairly thin. There are some details like an unfinished hem on the bottom that some might not like, but for me it adds to the 70’s-ish style of the dress.
Paired with a some Tan Suede Knee High Heel Boots, I I thought the outfit looked great. However, I’m sure it would equally look good in wedges or heals. I guess it depends on the occasion, but I highly recommend this dress to anyone who loves a slightly retro look from time to time. Last I checked though, it was selling out quickly. So if you’re interested, I’d look for it right away! Good luck 🙂
