Rainbow Halter Maxi Dress
Brand David Butler
I love a good rainbow print anything, and the subtle celebration-of-rainbow that is this print had me at "hello."
The dress is a classic halter cut, with long scarf-like ties that affix around the back of the neck and cascade down the open back. The dress has a deep v-neckline and slimming band of fitted fabric that runs from the empire waist to just above the true waist.
The skirt floats away from the body at the hip and flares into a trumpet shape to the floor. The skirt is long, with plenty of dramatic movement.
The fabric is an ivory base with multi-color zig zags and dashes of various width skittering off diagonally across the dress, in all the shades of the rainbow, to pleasing effect. Here and there ivory polka-dots create an almost burn-out effect on the rainbow patterns at play.
The dress is made of a lightweight fabric and lined only in the bust. The dress has a side zipper and button closure.
