I’m pretty sure I had a dress just like this in the ‘90s. When spaghetti straps, tiny prints, and babydoll dresses ruled fashion. So in many ways, this apron-style dress by Assembly New York is a complete throwback to grunge days.
Assembly New York launched in 2008 as an artisan hub, curating hard-to-find labels next to vintage pieces. Its own in-house collection, which started in 2009, is designed by owner Greg Armas and intended for comfort and durability.
The woven jacquard apron dress features a black and grey floral print. The square neckline in the front is offset by the slightly curved hemline, which tapers on each side. The back features cross-over straps, and there are two sleek pockets on each side.
I say if you’re going to wear a dress inspired by the ‘90s, go all the day with a black or white sleeveless turtleneck or perhaps a gauzy cropped top underneath. Over-the-knee socks and a pair of platform clogs would also be pretty cute with this dress. In the summer, a loose tank underneath and a comfy pair or Birks is all you need to let this dress sing.
The Assembly New York apron dress is $426 at Need Supply Co.
