The Dreslyn Style Edit | Raquel Allegra

The Dreslyn hit it out of the park with this one. Their editorial is always impressive but this feature in particular is exceptionally beautiful. The images are so captivating. Naturally, as a Raquel Allegra loyalist, these clothes most definitely caught my eye. I actually saw the Midnight Tie Dye Victorian Dress (and fell in love with it) during a recent trip to NYC. I've yet to purchase but will be keeping tabs on it for my fall wish list. Clearly it's top of mind because seeing it styled and captured in cool photos made me pause everything and immediately click through the email to see more. It was absolutely worth a click.

This photo story is titled "The Living is Easy" and sums up the Raquel Allegra design aesthetic perfectly. This line remains among my favorites because the pieces hang beautifully on the body and move with ease. I reach for these pieces time and again, season after season. Silks and the softest cottons, many shredded in Allegra's signature style, are instantly recognizable as the work of Raquel. In a palette of perfect neutrals punctuated by tie-dye prints that are like art, this line is a perfectly mixed wardrobe of luxe basics and statement pieces. It's never easy narrowing down selections each season. I happily return to old favorites in new fabrics + prints, especially the Easy Pants, Maxi Dresses, and Basic Tees (which btw, have the best fit and sleeve length ever). I also try to choose special pieces each season. The Victorian Dress is a strong contender this season...

Of course, you can never have too many basics. I live in layers and more often than not my first layer is a Raquel Allegra Basic. Shop these + more RA at
