This new style dress from Barbara Speer is a wonderfully creative lagenlook design. Mixed sections of woven cotton and bio-cotton stretch jersey create a dress that's comfortable to wear from late summer onward, layer up in the colder months. With loose fit and a-line shaping, which is altered by the integral channel and long ties that run up and across the dress, creating funky gathered ruching detail. 

The dress comes with a wired edge neckline, which creates endless shaping possibilities. There's even a cute pocket within the drape of the neckline, another fab detail. Long sleeves are made from a light bio-cotton stretch jersey which ensures comfort with movement, and are inset at rear over the shoulder blade. All in all, a timeless style that's perfect for any season.
