Have you met Yvonne? Yvonne is a long favorite of mine. This dress is a double breasted style in rich teal with gingham trimming along the collar and end of the sleeves. It feels nice on the skin, the fabric flows beautifully and creates a smooth silhouette. The main material of this dress is polyester, however, due to its crêpe-ish texture I did not experience any sweat issues ever. Other bonus points in my book are the longer sleeves [which are not tight so you have full movement and you are protected from sun burn] and the elegant neckline which does not need any fancy bra solution to be pulled off. This is the perfect dress for days when you have to hurry in the morning or you know that you need comfort and full range of movement. To make this clear: you can wear granny panties and your oldest comfiest bra and you can see no lines, frayed bra straps or trimmings of full cups. It is totally office and teaching appropriate. For pale people like me who shy away from colours this is a very pleasing shade, a subtle touch of colour that won’t make you look washed out as many lighter colours do. I also own the WIlhelmina dress in the same shade and fabric for my winter wardrobe. The Yvonne dress was brought back as the Yvonne Hanna Check Trim Swing Dress in black with a tartan trim. I hope for more colourways to come, a dark plum with a gingham collar would be great, right?
