This year sure is flying by, and with fall just around the corner for the northern hemisphere we’re starting to see darker colour palettes becoming available already. At Karina Dresses they’ve just released their Western Wandering collection, which shows that just because the days might be getting colder that’s no reason to cool the fun in your wardrobe! Their new signature prints debuting in this range include cacti, stars, and the stunning dark floral ‘sedona’ print that I’m wearing in the Margaret dress for this post. Find out more after the jump!
Crafted in their all-weather and super comfy microfibre fabric, the sedona print is a stunning floral on an inky black background. Featuring shades of blue, peach, and apple green, these bold blooms and wandering foliage make for a striking statement piece. The Margaret dress itself is one of my favourite Karina Dresses styles, with its crossover bodice, waist tie, and longer length giving it a very elegant 1940s feel.
The fit of the Margaret dress is so flattering, with the waist panel and tie combining to create a really structured silhouette. The stretch fabric and crossover bust make this a design to suit all body shapes, while the waist tie gives the freedom to cinch as much as you choose, or to loosen after a big meal – I know that’s something I appreciate! I’m wearing my usual size XS, which covers US sizes 0-4, and it’s a dream.
The Western Wandering collection has just landed so all sizes are still available! And if you’re a fan of the sedona print it’s also available in the Sophie, Maria, and Ruby styles in addition to the Margaret. These dresses are made ethically in the US and retail for $108USD. If it’s your first time ordering you can get 15% off your purchase – just wait for the little window to pop up when you first enter the site!
