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.”
