This Is the Sexiest Spring Dress I've Ever Seen — and I Need It Right Now
I'm having a love affair with this green tie-dye dress, and get this: I've never even tried it on. It caught my eye the moment it debuted on the Spring '16 Altuzarra catwalk, its toggle-style clasps left open as if to say, "I've come undone." But you don't have to let your lingerie peek out from beneath the Ilari dress for it to come across as sexy. In fact, I think it's even sexier when closed.
The crepe knee-length number — complete with pleating and a leg slit that draws attention to your strappy shoes — is making its rounds in the fashion world. Trendsetters like Leandra Medine are snatching it off the racks. After I flipped through a recent issue of Porter Magazine to find the look staring me in the face, accompanied by a detailed guide from designer Joseph Altuzarra on how to master the art of "subtle sexy," I knew for sure: I need this dress.
I've never been one to force my way into a body-con mini on date night. For me, to impress is to leave as much as possible to the imagination, to show off a detail that feels a little funky or fresh. Tie-dye is playful, but a row of roped buttons that run across the body diagonally — that's mysterious. I don't know about you, but that's how I do sexy.
