The A Line dress

The A Line dress, first named so by Mr C Dior, in 1955. In 1958, YSL then took the shape and made it into what we know now with a fitter shoulder and flared material. It's untouched by embellishment or pleats and doesn't usually have pockets, if you didn't know.

I have here the perfect example. The sleeves are puffed, very puffed even and right from the top you can see the shape flare out slightly as it does down into a midi length. The material here is thick, great quality and durable. The sweetheart neckline gives a plain (bar the sleeves) dress a little something extra without being too much. I've added a belt for colour and would pair some espadrilles and a beige leather jacket over the top for a summer evening out.

What's your favourite shape?
