The mid-1960s was all about cultural revolution. Ozzy and Harriet gave way to Bewitched. The Cold War crept in. The Velvet Underground plugged in. Conformity turned to disruption.
A cocktail dress emerged to smooth the transition. Soaring necks and shoulders. An effortlessly airy crepe that undulated with movement, teasing a narrative that's only slightly (even better) dangerous, thus bridging the gap between rigidity and freedom.
You can wear this for pristine gatherings such as cucumber sandwiches with the Duke and Duchess. You may also find yourself being chased barefoot through the east lawn sprinklers, soaking wet and laughing entirely too loud, waking up the neighbors. These types of disruptions tend to work in your favor.
