Silk Road Robe | Vintage 1980s Ralph Lauren 100% Silk Dress - Wear it 3 ways
Always lovely to find a vintage version of a brand still around who is known for making good quality clothing.
This vintage 100% silk Ralph Lauren 1980s wrap dress is perfectly comfy and great for summer or spring, work or play. Has slight tri-pleats details down the wrap hem part.
It is such a versatile piece too! We can already think of 3 ways to wear it (and we're sure you could think of so many more!)
How would we wear it?
1) As it is - so comfy and perfect with black heeled pumps (oooo sexy!) and red lips. Quite 1930s actually. Would be perfect with an oversized coat just hanging off your shoulders.
2) Open it up and wear it as a coat, perfect with white tee, cuffed boyfriend jeans and a pair of brown oxfords. Brown weathered satchel optional (but would be so cool). Slouchy but intentionally so ;)
3) Pin it loosely in the middle, wear a belt around and just wear lean capri pants under and cute kitten heels for a chic semi-casual look.
