1970s Arjon California 'Bandana" Scarf Tiered Navy Halter Dress

This is a fabulous find. It is an early seventies scarf or bandanna dress made of a light cotton mix fabric and has a beautiful deep navy print in a variety of stylized little flowers, dots and striped. It is made from several printed layers and each has a distinctive print for contrast. The bodice has a cute little triangle of fabric at the neckline on the back and front. The sides scoop super low into the high waist and it ties at the top of each shoulder. There are also ties that run through just under the bust that you tie to adjust for the perfect fit. The skirt below has two layers, with the top layer giving contrast and its pointed finish really gives it that bandana scarf feel. The fabric used is light and fine so it feels easy to wear once on the body. The print and the way it is mixes all the different patterns is wonderful and I love the way it contrasts the round circular prints with the more angular diamond feeling ones. It's the perfect piece that can easily go from the beach to day wear to night with a change of styling. Excellent condition
