1980s Drop Waist Giorgio Sant Angelo Metallic Dress

This is a lovely and versatile dress that really has that eighties feel. It has that typical eighties cut - over-sized through the upper body with wide shoulders and lots of fabric so its sits loose and easy and then a more defined skirt. The waist is elastic so you can wear it where you wish - I have shown it styled low around the hips so the skirt is long but you could also pull it up to wear it mid hip or right at the waist for a higher hem line. Each sleeve is full and wide with a buttoned cuffed finished. I love the light knit metallic lurex fabric - it weighs very little and is almost like wearing a giant Tee. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips over the head to wear. Buttons at the front, elastic at the waist. The cut and elastic at the waist makes the size very variable - a smaller girl can wear it as an over-sized piece.
