Fabulous 1970s Halston Ivory Pleated One Shoulder Lose & Easy to Wear Dress

This is a twist on that classic one shoulder jersey dress by Halston that I am always on the look out for. His one shoulder pieces are perhaps the most iconic of all of the Halston silhouettes and this is an interesting version on it. It is made from a very easy to care for light weight pleated jersey fabric. This fabric choice also makes it very easy to wear.

Halston was a master at this cut. There is a certain sexiness caused by the illusion of having the entire dress suspended by one hook at the shoulder. It gives the sense that undoing the ties would cause the entire dress to drop in a puddle around you (which it would). It is constructed from a single layer of synthetic jersey that has been pleated in tiny vertical knife pleats. It simply falls from the shoulder and skims over the body in a long sheath. The pleats let it fall in a column but expand when you move or sit so its insanely comfortable to wear. The dress ties into place at the shoulder with two ties that extend out from the piping that follows the neckline. The jersey cascades loosely down and over you from there for the ultimate Grecian goddess feel. It has a touch if transparency to it that adds to its sensuality. This is a classic dress by Halston that is perfect for traveling as it is wash and wear and will travel exceedingly well with little to no wrinkling. It is very easy to style too - a quick change of shoe takes it day to night in a snap. This one looks to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition.

Slips on to wear and ties to close at the top of the shoulder. These will fit a variety of sizes since they are not cut to be super fitted and the jersey does have some stretch. Note the colour has a slightly more creamy ivory feel to it in person then how it photoed. The loose and easy cut should allow it to fit a range of sizes.
