Whenever I see James Perse’s clothing, I think it has little hanger appeal because he mainly uses cotton in muted colors. However, when I put on his pieces, something magical happens and they transform into “miracle” apparel-that is, clothing that visually flattering and removes 5 pounds. When I was shopping at the James Perse store and saw this dress with a twist front on two of the sales ladies and a customer, I knew I had to try it on. Not surprisingly, it’s flattering to women of all ages and body shapes-it’s truly a “miracle dress.”
Because sneakers are a big trend this summer, I paired this dress with silver sneaker, a tote, a long necklace and classic Ray Ban wayfarers, but I’d be equally comfortable wearing sandals and a statement necklace with this dress.
