Lurex Maxi Dress with Belt
Brand Embers /Cinders
A sparkling lurex dress is as basic as a pair of dark denim or white t-shirt in my book!
Here we have a maxi length charcoal grey (almost black) lurex dress with sparkling silver metallic thread woven through out it.
The dress is long sleeved, with an exaggerated butterfly collar. The sleeves have a bit of a puff to them, where they gather at each cuff.
The dress is a simple columnar silhouette with a tie-style belt included to cinch the waist. My favorite aspect of this dress is it's versatility. It buttons from the neck all the way down tot he bottom hem, so it can be worn with a few extra buttons unbuttoned at the top or bottom for a little extra something.
The dress is also cute worn in a duster style, left completely unbuttoned with jeans and a shirt layered underneath, or buttoned to the waist with hot shorts peeking out from underneath. Play with the styling on this piece and have fun with it!
Dress is unlined.
