French Connection really sets the standards high with their Legere Lace dress. The intricate details of the rainbow floral embroidery and mirrored embellishment, alone, make it purchase worthy. There are two things I look for most when choosing a dress: one, length; two, shape. When it comes to choosing a dress that is a more tailored fit, it’s important, at least for me, for it not to be very short. I don’t care who you are, a bandage mini is just not classy (at least not for me, nor will my first impression of someone wearing one be an upscale one–just sayin’).
I love a dress that can be so tailored that it simply lays over your body perfectly, without any of the hugging. That’s why this French Connection dress was perfect for me. Now, keep in mind this brand can run a little on the smaller side of the scale. I usually wear a size 2 in dresses and I took a 4 in the Legere Lace dress, but that’s normal. Your size will always vary from brand to brand.
But if you’re looking to add a spark of interest to your dress repertoire, then this dress is it. The colors are so eye catching, I think people naturally gravitate toward complimenting it just because of the color palette. Not to mention the endless versatility, you can wear sandals, heels or boots and add a jacket to carry it into the different seasons. Well done French Connection…well done. Until next time.
Always be kind,
