Tonlé | Batique Tiered Dress

We love the tiered layers of this lightweight cotton piece- sure to make a statement when you walk into a room.

And Tonle has a buy back program if you ever decide to move on.

A black or red print option.


WVN | Maddox Dress

Evade the everyday in a dress that’s made for more. Utilitarian-style fastenings at the cuffs, waist, and down the front offer a bit of edge, with the flexibility of cotton and spandex blend offering easy movement and edgy, moto-chic vibes. Black or Tan

Normally $136 now $68

TONLE | Teavy Sweatshirt Dress

A comfortable and chic sweatshirt dress with pockets. The gender-inclusive style can be worn alone as a dress or as a long, tunic-style layer over pants. This season we’ve made this piece a bit longer and boxier than previous collections for a cozy yet minimalist cool-season one-and-done look. In blue, black or oatmeal.


Reformation | Jessi Dress

When it’s too hot for a full dress. The Jessi is a mini length dress with a crew neckline. It features a single button closure at the back neck with a keyhole cut out. It’s relaxed fitting throughout but still has a cute shape to it. Made from Linen to keep you cool. And if comic book graphics aren’t your thing it also comes in danube (blue) or white.
