The Necktie Dress
Pinstripes & Polka Dots.
You thought one was for her, the other for him.
Plenty of women are wearing pinstripe jackets and suits, reversing gender norms the way Dietrich did. That’s old news. Conventional. You know what’s not?
Because it’s not a suit or a jacket. It’s a feminine fit-and-flare in flowing silk crepe de chine. The sheer sleeves and necktie are silk chiffon.
Flaunt the necktie in any number of ways— tied, wrapped, undone. Add the pinstripes and polka dots and this is the dress Jay Gatsby would wear if Gatsby were a woman. And after seeing you in this, Scott might have made it so.
Try it with a flower in your hair. Dig into your incredibly fashionable grandmother’s collection of brooches. Don a blazer. Wear it like Zelda at the Plaza or Clara at Paramount demanding a new contract.
Better yet, wear it the way you want to.
