When we were designing our fall/winter 2019 collection, we knew we wanted to include a “sailor” dress. We love skirts with rows of accent buttons. We also appreciate the look of a smartly paired skirt and blouse.
However, it can be hard to find the right skirt and blouse combination. And when you tuck a shirt into a skirt, there is usually excess fabric at the waist which is a bulky and unflattering look.
Enter … the Clemy! We love this dress because although at first glance it looks like a two-piece ensemble, it’s actually a connected dress. The result is smooth and flattering.
The knee-length Clemy skirt is made out of hunter green stretch twill. It features six wooden buttons on the front panel. The paneled skirt is pencil cut while avoiding being too form-fitting.
The blouse is made out of substantial cotton knit fabric. The knit has a high-quality feel and is non see-through. No layering is required to hide your undergarments, unlike for many other blouses. We love the boatneck detail of the blouse and the elbow length sleeves.
The Clemy is a versatile dress because you can pair it with heels, boots or flats. It is appropriate for work, church, date nights or every day. Personally, we love the Clemy with a pair of brown boots because they compliment the wooden buttons so well.
The Clemy launches in August along with the other dresses from the Rose Collection. Subscribe to our email list to receive the full lookbook before the collection launches.
