This dress, from UMBA, is just the thing whether you’re going for a conservative look or trying to spice it up. Its long silhouette is eye-catching, but the hemline–landing about 2-4 inches below the knee– keeps it modest. lightweight, stretchy fabric falls in a flattering way for most any body type. Keep the braid in back if you’re going for sleek, or put the braid in front for a sexier, more sultry look. Rachel completes this minimalist yet confidence-exuding ensemble with the Black Pocketbelt.
Rachel’s daughter is wearing a dress by Simonetta, with a pair of Michael Kors slip-on shoes, provided by Childish Things.
