Look 1: Roll With It Romper - Out of all three looks, this has become my absolute favorite, because not only is it incredibly comfortable, it is also incredibly versatile. I own over twelve rompers, but this has quickly become my favorite due to the fact that it has a dressy vibe to it. The material, while 100% Polyester, has this subtle sheen that makes it appear shimmery in a silk-ish way; and the short sleeves give you a little extra covering that is incredibly sophisticated (and juxtaposes perfectly against the playful keyhole back). I paired mine with a chunky silver forearm cuff, and gold Seychelles heels, and felt that it looked perfect; but you could also pair it with a long necklace (like they did in the mark adverts) to make more of a statement.
Look 2: Cool It Dress - I call this my The Seven Year Itch dress, because the aesthetic (with the cross-front chest) reminds me of the white dress that Marilyn Monroe was wearing when she stood over the subway grating in the film The Seven Year Itch. This is one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever owned. It has a dot-lace overlay, which adds a little extra dimension to the design; and a truly, truly flattering cut as it features an elasticized cinching right below the bustline to create an empire-like waist. I paired it with an oversized gold and white Cocktail Ring, and my gold Seychelles heels, so it looked a bit dressy; but if you pair it with flat sandals, it makes it look a little more casual. The name of this piece (the Cool It Dress), could not be more perfect, as it is really breathable and comfortable, and just perfect for summer and trips to the beach. I’m kind of in love with it!
Look 3: Easy Going Maxi Dress - I mentioned in my previous post that I have never owned a maxi dress before because I’m short (5’1 in flats); so I was really excited when I opened up the mark package and found this dress inside, because it allowed me to try out a maxi dress for once – and I completely adore it. Maxi dresses can be so difficult (especially when you’re not tall), as sometimes they fit too wide, or have a strange print that is unflattering. The Easy Going Maxi Dress didn’t fall into either of these categories. The print is a fun, summery take on zebra, in that the colors, instead of being the normal black and white stripes, are varying shades of blue and white; while the deep-V neckline and elasticized empire waist really tailor the dress to fit you in a truly flattering way. I wore mine to a barbeque on the beach and received more compliments that I can count. The unanimous phrase I heard regarding this dress (on Instagram, Facebook, and in real life) was “Ooh la la.” You’ve got to love a dress that earns reviews like that!
Regardless of where you happen to be wearing these looks, mark’s Hamptons Collection will make you feel as if you’re on a blissful beach vacation every single time you slip on one of these comfortable yet downright chic pieces.
