"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
- Coco Chanel
Oh Coco, you say the best things! I'm thinking about dresses a lot lately and wearing one almost every day. Coco might be right -- fashion could be in the sky and in the street. And in Toronto this week both the sky and the street are HOT. I'm writing this first thing on a May morning and it's already nearly 30 degrees. Since I can't wear my bathing suit around town without raising a few eyebrows, the next best thing on a super hot day is a sundress; bare legs, bare shoulders and an open neck. Bamboo is soft, breathable making it ideal for warm weather. So let me show you a few of my favourite Miik sundresses: the Jude halter dress, the Sydney sundress and the Sydney racer-back sundress. With pleats that help our fabric flow away from the body and beautiful, bright colours, these dresses are perfect for summer in the city...or at the cottage.
The Jude halter dress
Our Jude halter dress comes in purple and black. It's a flattering, round-neck halter dress with a classic empire waist. The gather detail under the empire waist flows away from the body making this the perfect fun and flirty sundress. Lunch on a patio, dinner by the lake, a walk in the sunshine – the Jude will take you there. Layers perfectly with the Robin cardi for a little extra coverage.
The Sydney sundress
Our Sydney sundress features a drop-pleat neckline that hangs beautifully to streamline the body. This flattering dress with built-in bra is absolutely effortless. Perfect for lunches with friends, hanging at the cottage and southern holidays. Once you’ve worn this dress, you’ll want to try it in every colour! Also available with a sexy, sporty racerback.
Let me know what you think of our sundresses.
