Crazy for Dresses this Spring, Part 1

Posted on June 24 2014

"One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress."

 Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld is probably right -- a little black dress is an essential addition to any woman's wardrobe. But this spring, I just can't limit myself to black. There are too many fantastic dresses in beautiful colours to choose from! Miik's Spring/Summer 2013 Collection is in stores and online now, and I am so excited to tell you about a few of my favourite pieces. Our designers had vibrant, jewel-tone-inspired colours in mind this season -- ocean blue, cobalt, watermelon and navy, in addition to our classic black. They also had versatility in mind. Most dresses are back-to-front reversible, giving you two neckline choices in every piece. I love that about Miik -- the fabric is durable, the styles are classic and the designs are versatile -- so you really feel you are getting value in addition to beauty.

Let me introduce you to one of our fantastic dresses for spring/summer 2013, the Wendy, and I'll be back over the next few days to introduce you to others!



Wendy Reversible Cowl Dress

Last year we intoduced a great top called the Tara that was back-to-front reversible and had a twisted cowl neck. Miik followers loved the neckline on this top -- the straps can be twisted to make the cowl neck as high or low as you'd like, and the back is a classic boat neck. Our Tara top was such a hit that our designers, Donna and Proshat, knew they had to apply the twisted cowl to a dress. So our Wendy dress was born.

Available in ocean blue, watermelon, cobalt, black and navy, the Wendy features a two-inch waist band and relaxed fit at the hip. This softly flaring dress flatters just about every body type. I love to wear the boat neck forward with a cardi or our Emily soft blazer and a favourite necklace. For me, it's a perfect work dress with a pair of ballet flats. In the evening if I'm meeting friends for drinks on a patio, I like to turn the Wendy around and wear the boat neck forward (and show off my back a little with the cowl!). So pretty and versatile. I can dress this piece up or down, depending on my mood.

Our Wendy dress is made from rayon from bamboo, which feels soft against the skin and falls beautifully along the body. It doesn't cling so it's perfect in warm weather. To wash, simply add this dress to a cold wash and lay flat or hang to air dry. Easy! Ideal for travel.

Our Wendy dress is available online and at our fabulous retailers now. If you have questions about colours, sizes or styles, or comments on this piece, we'd love to hear from you. E-mail us at or find us on Facebook and Twitter anytime. We love our followers!
