Style Inspiration: Hats by Janessa Leone

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

We are very pleased to introduce Los Angeles-based hat and accessories designer Janessa Leone at Dress. Now in-store are some of Janessa Leone’s best selling hat styles, including: the Panton, Camellia, Lucy, Lola, and Sienna. Skillfully made by hand of straw or wool felt, in colors like Gunmetal, Olive, and Camel, the designer says her collection intends to “evoke a time when women’s innate confidence was conveyed through the dichotomy between sharp, menswear inspired tailoring and exaggerated feminine beauty.” A timeless addition to your wardrobe, Janessa Leone hats are created to ripen with each wear and mold to the wearer.

Taking style cues from fashion bloggers and celebrity fans of Janessa Leone from across the internet, below are examples of how to complete your look with a Janessa Leone hat.

SEASON PREVIEW | Fall 2016 Highlights for Pre-order now!

Friday, July 8th, 2016

From sailor stripes to pumpkin spice, Fall 2016 presents a range of alluring new trends. You will find sophisticated caplets, feminine ruffles, and fringe peplums mixed in with 70’s throwback looks, like smocked tops and bohemian dresses. Colors this season naturally get darker with traditional autumn colors making up the most significant of the new color trends. That’s gold, muted orange, maroon, and, of course, a variety of green. Not all the trends this Fall are new. From Spring, unfinished hems and delicate lace and embroidery detailing returns (better than ever this season). And there is no shortage of modern classics, from stripe and check shirting to delectable knits in grey, black, navy, and ivory.

Fall 2016 collections begin arriving at Dress next week and will continue to arrive through October. If you would like to pre-order a style from our trend report below, email us at shop@dressboston.com and we will contact you when the style arrives in store.

IN THE PRESS | Boston’s Best: Women’s Clothing – The Improper Bostonian

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

We were ecstatic to learn that one of our favorite magazines The Improper Bostonian named Dress Boston’s Best in the Women’s Clothing category. See the write-up below.

 

The Improper Bostonian

Boston’s Best Annual Guide Issue

July 6 – 26, 2016

>>WOMEN’S CLOTHING

Dress

“Stocked with cool-girl labels like Sea NY, NSF, Ulla Johnson and A.P.C., Dress keeps the city’s fashion fans looking their best. The name nods to the classic little black number, but owners Martha Pickett and Jane Schlueter carry a lot more than that, stocking interesting yet wearable frocks, separates and outerwear, as well as a well-edited selection of jewelry, handbags, accessories, fragrances, footwear, including versatile Veja sneakers made from recycled plastic bottles. Hot tip: Keep an eye out for new styles from Rachel Comey coming this fall.”
