Very 90s minimalistic chic. This sultry satin number is a must-have for balmy summer nights. For those who expect more out of their garments, this one is also great for layering and could transition into early fall.

We are still in love with the style of the young royals. The impeccable tailoring looks classy and expensive, while the soft stretch crepe allows for the ease of wear and care. The blush hue is perfect for both English roses and richer skin-toned goddesses alike.
