Size: 2 (Medium)
Color: Lime green
Wearing Suggestions: It’s all about the color with this Porto dress! We make no secret that this is pretty much our favorite color. (Jokes about our closet containing all black, notwithstanding.) So, we got pretty excited when this Porto dress walked in our doors and bestowed its luxurious brilliant green-ness upon us. We love the slightly brushed finish of the fabric, which has a good amount of stretch. It feels great in your hand, not to mention on your body!
The design features of the dress are subtle but deliberate and delightful. The dress is cut and assembled in pieces which create strong diagonals on both the front and back. Tone on tone zigzag stitching on the seams adds some fun interest and a slimming effect. We love that the hemline cuts in a bit at the bottom giving the effect of a bubble hem, but without the gathers. In essence, it’s a hobble skirt but wide enough to not actually hobble you-an important distinction! The armholes of this Porto dress are bound and finished with no raw edges. The neckline, however, is bound with a flat bias cut self tape, which has a raw edge, but will not fray and lays flatter.
Lime green, while making you extremely noticeable, is also a very versatile color. It’s truly wonderful paired with other bright jewel tones like royal, purple or teal. Orange can create a dynamic duo when paired with lime. At the same time, lime green is a fabulous canvas for neutrals from white to grey. No shock, it’s fantastic with navy and black as well. This comfortable Porto dress calls out for simple flat and comfortable shoes. Try a gladiator sandal, Toms flats, espadrilles, ballet slippers or your favorite pair of summer sandals or Keds.
Materials: Viscose blend
Details: Stretchy fabric and a below the knee length make this a perfect every summer day dress. No zippers, buttons or fasteners to worry about.
