Unleash the inner bird in you with flowing yarn fringe in this Too Hot Not to Cop dress by Karen Walker. The New Zealand-based designer is known for her quirky, anti-it-girl designs, perfect for young women wanting to march to the beat of their own drum and no scared to stand out a little and make a statement.
This Captain Sweatshirt Dress is a prime example, and a steal at $129 (from $170) over at Need Supply Co. The ultra-comfortable dress is made of woven terry cotton in heather gray. Oversized details such as larger-than-life buttons on the front and wide sleeves keep the more subtle details like petite lace edging and hidden side pockets in check. Obviously, the stand-out detail on this piece is the yarn fringe on the shoulders, which flow over the front and back of the dress.
This dress is basically what I like to call a “you-can-have-it-all” dress. It’s seasonless (pair it over chunky tights and thigh-high boots in the winter, and bring it out during the summer months with clogs or flats), and you can dress it up or down. A few carefully selected accessories (perhaps eye-popping tights or statement earrings) could really make this dress look like a one-of-a-kind haute couture-type piece, which this dress is just as good on the weekends with a pair of kicks.
No matter what your style, the Karen Walker Captain Sweatshirt Dress is a standout piece for your closet.
