Color — Ivory
We know a good puff-sleeve piece when we see it, and this dress just might be the gold standard. It’s made from 100 percent cotton, with a full, drapey body that falls to the ankles, contrasting beautifully with that plunging V-neck. We think it looks pretty perfect with the Ernest Sandals.
Running on capsule collections (which the brand calls “editions”) instead of the traditional production calendar, ESSE is founder Charlotte Hicks’s response to fast fashion and overconsumption. The pieces in each edition—sumptuous-feeling, graceful silhouettes—are designed to be mixed and layered with one other, and they’re made to last, so you can build out your collection over time.
