LUELLA DENIM DRESS
Be it bright and bold pop to channel girl-next-door, or black and gold shimmer for rock chic, Luella is a denim classic to stay. A sensuous m-shape bustier is juxtaposed against quirky adjustable straps attached through a loop. Hem lines run down the length of the bodice to give the illusion of height while a functional crisscross tie-back reminiscent of corsets accommodates a perfect fit. Casual chic just got sexier. Made of slight stretchy denim. Available in sizes S and M.
MIKROSE CROCHET TOP
Fancy some cherry blossoms fresh from spring? We've got the next best thing with Mikrose's alluring shades. Vintage-eqsue fine crochet in floral motifs are a sweet reminder of seasonal blooms. A peter-pan collar adds a youthful touch with fully-lined layered crochet cascading into a straight hem. Non-sheer and slightly porous for breathability, this top also features subtle functional buttons for closure. Bring on the sunshine. Available in sizes S, M, and L.
So you have always dreamt of being a ballerina? Now you can dress like one all grown up. With chiffon layers creased to accentuate bust-line and gentle pleats that will catch the wind, Panetierre is this season's must-have. A toga cut highlights your collarbones while faux leather strips banded at the waist subtly exude an edgy twist. Ending in a wavy hem, this fully-lined non-sheer dress is all grace and charm. Dance away. Available in sizes S and M.
Wanna make a statement? This decade's Mod alert is all about funky shapes and bold outlines. With its one-sided batwing sleeve, layered waves, and slant hem, Galleria is another Ohvola staple that keeps up with fashion trends. Its fully-lined non-sheer chiffon is light to the touch, breezy for comfort, and flows with the wind. Throw on a chunky necklace and an assortment of bangles and you've got the look locked down. Be playful. One size fits all.
Denim doesn't have to be boring. Light blue denim set against bold orange trims is perfect for dress down Friday, while dark blue denim accompanied by black trims makes for a great slip-on staple in the cold office. Tailored hems running down the back give the illusion of upper body length and adds to your height. Button closures lined down the front frame your inner wear. With contrast panels at the sleeve and piping, we have definitely updated the classic denim jacket. Take your pick. Available in sizes S and M.
LILYAN OVERLAY TOP
Fern and fleur motifs gently adorn the lace overlay of Lilyan, with a soothing polyester bodice and slight flare dancing from the tapered band at the waist. Enchant the crowd with sparking gems set against the lightly edged square neckline. We reckon soft pastel trousers and floral hairpins complete the graceful ensemble. Those cutesy buttons in the front are functional and a concealed side zipper makes for an easy slip-on. Be enthralled. Available in sizes S, M, and L.
Knot up, and we're set to go! Throw on some sunnies and a comfy bottom and you have got the perfect weekender, beach coverup, or sexy overlay. Carey's steep v-neckline casts a relaxed look accompanied by sleeve lapels with button closures for a neater outline. Make a statement with the adjustable tie-front of this cotton staple by flaunting your taut tummy and sexy hipbones. Be creative, and have fun. Available in sizes S and M.
ARIELLE LACE DRESS
Arielle makes the childhood dream wearable. Light floral and ivy lace overlays nicely against a fully-lined pleated polyester skirt in a darker shade, while a tailored taper at the waist highlights a flattering A-line silhouette. The unique square hem armhole is set against an oval scoop neckline to frame the bodice snuggly. And because princesses deserve only the best, we've thrown in a concealed back zipper for effortless fashion. Elegant royalty indeed. Available in sizes S and M.
