The dress is made from 100% silk in a beautiful blue print. It features a fitted waist and full midi skirt that hits well below the knee.
It has elegant sheer selves and a keyhole opening at the back.
Here’s how L.K. Bennett describe the piece:
“An eye-catching dress, timeless in its style and fashion forward in its execution. Addison is ideal for events, both formal and casual, with its jewel-toned print, feminine transparent sleeves and ankle grazing length. A dress you’ll wear for seasons to come.”
