While I own and wear a lot of black, I love to branch out and wear colors that actually flatter my complexion. How’s that for a fun concept? It’s not always possible to find color options in shapes that I like so when I do, I jump at the chance.
This Isla Dress is my first piece of Sympli which surprises me because they’re designed and sewn in Canada. That makes them near and dear to my Canadian heart, plus they’re a company with a heart. Nearly 85% of their workers are part of a “Home Sewer Network” that allows them to work on their own terms so they can care for families and elders. How great is that?
Artful Home carries a carefully curated collection from Sympli which flatter the body and travel effortlessly. Their asymmetrical styling and fluid shapes make them customer favorites at Artful Home with regular five-star reviews.
This Isla Dress is part of their newest holiday collection. My instinct was to order the black but once I saw the blue, I knew it was my chance to stand out in the sea of black outfits I’ll see throughout the holidays.
It’s keyhole neckline and mandarin collar would look awkward with a necklace so I just added earrings and a bracelet. I couldn’t resist adding this Pezzo Scarf which has flecks of silk in the same gorgeous sapphire.
The Isla Dress has a silhouette which slims through the torso for waist definition, then releases into a flowing skirt. Its asymmetrical hemline is created by a folded panel of fabric that drapes into a notched hem.
The medium weight matte jersey drapes beautifully, doesn’t cling and is wrinkle resistant. This dress is a winner for many reasons but the color will make it a star in my wardrobe.
Are you gravitating to flattering colors this season?
Thanks for reading ladies and supporting the brands that allow me to bring you new things.
