1970s Halston Easy to Wear Black Jersey Slip On Caftan Dress

Halston is one of those rare labels where the more time that goes by since the pieces were originally made, the more relevant his pieces feel. This is one of those pieces that will instantly become a closet staple  for you. It is a no brainer in that you just slip it on and you know that you will look and feel amazing. It has his signature simplicity and ease with a touch of that Studio 54 sexiness thrown in. I normally stick to his main line label when I bring things into the shop but make a few exceptions for certain pieces that I know will work perfectly for my clients. It simply slips on and is a wash and wear jersey. The seam along the top of the shoulder are slightly curved so there is just the hint of shape and interest there. The sleeves are cut wide and full near the body and then narrow down as they reach the wrist. The body of the dress is cut very loose and easy and it narrows down as it reaches the hem. A high front slit allows a bit of leg to show when you move or sit. A V at the front gives the perfect flash of skin and the basic black means you can wear it with just about anything and dress it up or down depending on how you style it. Brilliantly Halston in every way and very easy to wear. Excellent condition
