Picnics were Invented for Dresses Like This
I like to imagine that our model is about to go to a Fourth of July party. This fantastic 1940's dress was shortened by the previous owner and is made out of rayon. I love the contrast between the white puff sleeves, buttons, and pocket outlining against the bright red of the dress. I paired it with a sturdy leather bag and a few gold bracelets, as well as this fun red, white, and blue hat. This outfit is just begging to be worn to a picnic! It includes a matching fabric belt, but one could even wear a white or blue contrasting belt with it. It could also be worn with a cardigan if the weather gets chilly. I actually love that it was shortened because it can be paired with many different types of shoes. Personally, I would love to wear it with a pair of wedge espadrilles.
