slide lite SAPPHIRE & BLACK
slide lite SAPPHIRE & BLACK
It's easy to deSLIDE what to wear this season when a dress this effortless is right in front of you. Introducing the #linearSlideLite; a color-block creation that looks good from every...side! If you loved the elegant evening version from our past collection, then you'll certainly fall in love with its 'lighter' counterpart.
DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?
With 'tromp l'oeil' (think optical illusion) as the trend du jour, they'll assume you went for the layered look, but it's just another trick 'up the sleeve' from..lineaR. Think 'out of the box' with this off-the-shoulder design, but with a color blocked add-on that 'tops' it all off!
Modal Rayon takes center stage in this updated version and creates the perfect drape whether you spin or sit in this linear look! While this fabric is a breeze for daytime fair, the Slide Lite can still work well into midnight air. Draw it all together with your favorite belt. May we suggest the AVIV clear belt here?
THE COOL CUT
What's old is new again. Our previous version got in the 'swing of things' with its A-line cut and asymmetrical hem. This season, we slimmed the silhouette and introduced a straight hem in a version that can only be described as 'sleek and chic!'
With the #linearSlideLite you won't have to deSLIDE what to wear next, so we suggest you buy it all NOW :)
Model is 5'9 and wears size XS
The #linearSLIDELITE is the same dress you love from our previous collection, but now in a luxuriously soft (and lighter) fabric you wont want to take off!
This raglan sleeve, color block dress mimics the look of a one shouldered dress layered above a top. This tromp l'oeil style lends itself to a very slimming effect at the top of this frock.
This style is straight in its silhouette, and tapers from the hips down. The cut is not meant to be body hugging all over, nor is it extremely oversized. It should lightly graze the lower part of your body. If you want a more relaxed fit, we definitely suggest sizing up.
-Fitted in the arms.
-Over the head access (no zipper necessary!)
- Multiple customers (of various sizes) tried on this style before site launch. Overall they agreed that the top part of this dress was running true to size, but some found the bottom (hips/rear) to be a little more fitted than they prefered. If you are wider on the bottom, we suggest sizing up if you want some more wiggle room
SIZE GUIDE: (if number is prefaced by 'SMALL', you are narrower at the bottom)
XS- 0/2/small 4
MEDIUM- 8/small 10
LENGTH/WIDTH GUIDE: Approximate lengths from shoulder to front hem at its shortest point. All measurements are taken when dress is on a flat surface. Approximate chest/hips measurements are measured across. Double for complete circumference. THIS FABRIC HAS STRETCH AND WILL EXPAND WITH YOUR BODY.
GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
LENGTHS- Place a measuring tape at the center point of one of your shoulders (Also known as HPS- High Point Shoulder). The '0' (zero) on the tape should be your starting point. Drop the tape and let it hang. It helps to look in a full length mirror to determine the length that suits you (If you prefer above, on or below the knee). For reference, average lengths (depending on your height) fall between 37-41inches on size XS. Since everyone's torso/leg lengths are different (even if two people are the same height), coverage length can never be exact. For all styles, we list the approximate lengths of our dresses measured from HPS. Please check the lengths to see if they work for you.
WIDTHS: Chest- Position the '0' (zero) of the measuring tape underneath one armpit aligning it as much as possible with the center part of your bust. Wrap around the circumference of your chest area until the tape matches point zero from the backside. Keep in mind that knits (stretchy styles) can accommodate widths that are broader than the listed dimensions due to fabric forgiveness, while wovens (fabric with minimal or no stretch) will only 'give' to a certain point. Usually, patterns are adjusted to work for sizing when the fabric is woven.
Hips- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start at the widest point of hips.
Arms- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start under armpit and measure around biceps.
