I may not be spending this summer on a beach, but I’ll surely be taking my favorite beach-y style to the city streets of St. Louis. I love a flowing dress with a halter neckline. It’s practically my all-day uniform for sunny days spent at home in St. Kitts. When I peeped the braided halter high-low dress featured today, then, I knew I had to try it on.

The dress is available in two perfect shades of blue and red. At first sight, the blue was my preferred choice. Since I just purchased the Express pleated maxi dress in blue (see it worn here), though, I decided that the red would add more value to my wardrobe.

I’m not sure if I’m colorblind, but this ‘modern red’ color that’s so popular always looks orange to me. I would describe this dress as orange and not red. What color do you see?
No matter what the color is, the standout feature of the dress is surely its dramatic high-low hemline, complete with an eyelet trim. This hemline takes the dress from cute to gone-with-the-wind fabulous.
I’m wearing the halter dress, which retails for $46, in a size small. It’s available in sizes extra small through extra large.
