This Is The Only Dress You Need This Summer

According to top bloggers.

When fashionista favorite online store Réalisation Par released the Alexandra Red Star dress, no one could never have anticipated the crazed reaction it got from the blogosphere. Everyone – and we mean everyone – was wearing it last summer. From top bloggers Sara Escudero of College Vintage and Coco Bassey of Millennielle, to supermodels and celebs like Bella Hadid and Jenna Dewan Tatum, the red wrap-around had caught on. 

A whole summer has been and gone since the original Alexandra phase, and it is set to keep going strong. The silk crepe tea dress is the perfect balance of flattering and flirty – but not quite in the way the contraversial product description suggests. With its plunging neckline and cropped hem countered by a long sleeve, slipping into this summer frock is as much a treat for you as it is anyone who lays eyes on you. 

The original Réalisation Par design may be fully re-stocked, but this new cult classic still comes with a price tag of $195 – and some other downsides: perhaps you aren't into the smattered star print? Luckily, it was so much of a sensation – and is sure to be again – that pretty much every other retailer has riffed on the style with their own rouge, ruffled, wrap dresses with subtle differences. 

According to the women who are already rocking the Alexandra, the best way to accessorise is with a Gucci handbag, a simple pendant necklace and a pair of chunky shoes for a rebellious kick. The best part, for us, is that this style would work just as well at a suave evening 'do as it would on a weekend in the sun with your friends.
