Betsey Johnson Red Snap Front Dress
Brand Betsey Johnson
Alert! Alert! 80's Betsey Johnson PUNK label on deck!
Here we have a 1980s punk label Betsey Johnson dress in fire engine RED.
The dress has a high mock neck and metal snap front that runs from the top of the neck of the collar all the way to the bottom hem of the dress. I love this style, because it gives the wearer full flexibility in how much décolletage or leg they want to show off at any given time. And whenever I see a piece that buttons all the way from top to bottom it opens up layering possibilities too!
This dress is long sleeved with a slight batwing cut to it.
Dress has a full, swingy skirt and a drop waist. Normally, I'm not a fan of a drop waist, it's hard for most shapes to pull off, but I was surprised by how flattering this silhouette is on. The fitted bodice, high mock neck and snap front seem to elongate and give a slimming effect to the torso while the drop waist gently accentuates the hip curve.
The dress is unlined, and made of a soft knit cotton lycra blend, so it does have some give to it. Dress has the snap front, top to bottom mechanism and no additional closures.
