Simone Dresses

Follow

 

I love how dresses and springtime go hand-in-hand! When I put on my first spring dress, I feel uplifted by the colour, print and style, let alone the sensational feeling of bare legs!

We can start to have some fun with our wardrobes again because each dress seems to have a character of it's own. A dress can say more about your style than any other garment and with no more effort than adding a necklace or choosing what shoes to wear. Really, can you have too many dresses? Even one from a few years ago can be brought back to life with the right personality.

Dresses are more than just a pick-me-up—they’re practical too. 

Start building your spring wardrobe with a Plum dress--especially while the coupon still in effect. Save $20 off $95 purchase until March 23rd. Then refer your friends for a chance to win a $200 gift certificate! Details here.

Start counting down the days! Spring break is nearly here. Whether you’re flying to exciting Disneyland or escaping to tropical Hawaii, here are three smart buys for your suitcase:  

Image

The Simone printed maxi dress is perfect for when you’re lounging at the beach--just toss it on over your bathing suit. (The shirred top makes it easy.) Then, dress it up for dinner by swapping your flip-flops for a sandal and adding a bohemian necklace and ring.

Image

Tour the theme park in this Plum polka dot tunic. Worn over the white Mavi boyfriend jeans, the colour combo is nautical and fresh. The tunic also doubles as a sheer cover-up when you’re relaxing poolside at the hotel.

Even though you’re headed south, don’t forget about the evening breeze (or the air-conditioning). Kersh cardigans come in a bright spring palette and can be easily slung over the shoulder for when it gets chilly on the patio.

If you're not heading for warmer climates this month, start preparing for spring now that we have a limited-time coupon (and before these items sell out)! 

Shop between March 6 and 23rd with your coupon and save $20 dollars off a purchase of $95 dollars or more (excluding jewellery). Plus, if you spend more than $150 dollars, we'll send you a $10 dollar coupon in April!

Get some ideas by checking out the early spring arrivals here.

When shopping for fashion with prints, style experts say you should think of three different ways of wearing it before you make the purchase. Just like your little black dress, the printed dress provides endless outfit options and the colours in the pattern can make us look more vibrant.

Try a painterly floral for an updated romantic look. Or, for an outfit that's more striking, try a geometric printed dress. When you want to change the styling, wear your dress under a fitted blazer or a cardigan so we only see the skirt.

Because Simone dresses are designed in-house and made locally in small batches, you are more likely to stand out.

Now there’s even more reason to wear printed dresses...

How many women wear dresses where you work? I bet you can name them right away. Dresses make an immediate impression.

When you wear a dress, it looks like you put a ton of effort into your outfit but it really doesn’t take much at all. We feel pulled-together and polished right away.  It takes seconds to put a dress on and seconds to make this impression.

Because of this, dresses are the ultimate wardrobe solution for women with busy lives. The dress speaks volumes about your personality and taste, whether you like a creative colourful dress or a classic LBD.  Then, if you need to go out after work, just bring some heels and some statement jewels and your look is transformed.

It’s easy to impress with a dress.

Dresses That Fit

Tunic Dress in Red (pictured) and Purple, $89

At Plum, you know we take the fit of our garments seriously very seriously. Our designer works one-on-one with a size 8 fit model to craft designs that fit. For more information, you can watch our design process by clicking this link. We're taking a stance against fast fashion.

Fast fashion is another way of referring to disposable fashion. These items are manufactured quickly and cheaply, usually with the emphasis on ultra-trendy pieces and not on quality. They simply cannot do for you what an expertly tailored garment can in terms of fit.

3/4 Sleeve Dress, in Jade (pictured) and Coral, $98

So why settle for less when you know you deserve better? A better fit and a better consultant to help find the right look for you. That's what you can expect at Plum, no matter what your style is.

Lace Dress with 3/4 Sleeves, in Teal (pictured), Black, and Burnt Orange, $129

 

Proper fitting garments is key to achieving your overall look. What is your favourite fit? Personally, I'm a natural waistline dress (like the lace dress above) kinda gal.
