Late 1970s Ted Lapidus Silk Tunic Dress

Great late seventies, early eighties Lapidus dress made of a scarf weight silk and has an easy to wear, loose cut. His pieces always seem to have that rich girl feel to them and you can see some chic girl of the past pairing this with camel toned accessories and just slipping it on. The sexiness is in the fabric - it is so lightweight that even though it is cut loose, when you mo it will move with you and skim across your shape giving glimpses of the body underneath. You could also cinch in the waist for more shape! The front buttons at the neck with tiny fabric covered buttons that are picked up on each cuff. A bit of a slit on either side of the leg adds to the subtle sexiness the dress has. The print is subtle yet striking. A great piece that will be amazing to style - endless possibilities! Excellent condition
