One of my fav shows when I visit NY Fashion Week is always Milly. In fact, my very-first season at Bryant Park I attended a Milly show and immediately fell in love. Michelle’s designs are so upbeat and fresh, and the edgy, adorable cuteness of the line. It’s so, so chic. (And can I also admit I toyed with the idea of naming baby L Milly?!)
So when I heard about the Milly for Kohl’s collab and was sent this super-cute dress to test drive, I was all about it (yes, I squealed!). Black and white stripes are my fav trend right now, and I couldn’t be more obsessed with this dress. The stretchy fabric makes it super comfy (and fits true to size), and you get the look of a really nice dress at an affordable price ($84…on sale for $42!). The fit and flare style makes it flattering for all body types (celebrity Zosia Mamet has been spied in it and she’s way more petite than moi, but still rocked it). With this type of dress, it’s pretty easy. I let the dress do all the talking! Just add simple black heels (like these from Schutz) and a clutch and you’re good to go. (Oh, and the dress has pockets, so extra bonus points for that.)
Next, I really want to try a floral pencil skirt and tee combo from the line…the sayings like “Ciao Bella” and “You Me Capri” are precious.
This collab didn’t get near the attention as (ahem) a certain other one that launched the same month, but all of the pieces are pretty darn adorable. What do you think of this collab between Milly and Kohl’s?
