Floral prints are my go-to wardrobe staple; no matter what the season they always feel fresh! Karina Dresses have been busy creating a new signature fabric, the Tulip Garden print, a super chic floral that will take you from day to night with ease. Check out my thoughts on the Ruby dress in tulip garden print below!
Though it’s hard to pick a favourite Karina Dresses dress (they are all so wonderful), the Ruby dress is definitely up there! With its faux-wrap style and waist tie it’s very flattering for all body types. Like all Karina styles the practical elements are so welcome too, like the non-crease microfibre fabric and the 3/4 sleeves to keep the chill off your arms. And of course, that print – wowza! As soon as I saw the fabric swatch for this dress I knew I needed it in my life. Those sweet little red tulips scattered across an inky black background make for a showstopper of a dress. If you can’t get enough of this striking and elegant print you’ll be pleased to know that it’s also been made into the short sleeved Margaret dress!
This is now my third Ruby dress from Karina Dresses, and one of many that I’ve been lucky enough to receive from them in total! After trying such a range of prints and styles, I can confirm that their sizing and quality could not be more consistent. I have stuck with my usual size XS which has always done me well, and I have nothing but praise for the fit. Any style with a waist tie, like the Ruby, always gives that extra level of sizing comfort as it allows you to cinch your waist in as required.
I am told by those in the know that this print is super popular and selling like hotcakes, so if you’re a fan then I recommend getting in quick! All sizes (XS to XXL) are still currently available via the Karina Dresses website, and the retail price is $108USD. Both US and international shipping is available.
