A bit about me: I’m 5’2”, which I’ll admit gave me pause about the full-length style, especially with such a sky-high slit. But this dress has stretch, which made it fit like a glove. Also, according to my very unofficial internet research, Beatrice isn’t that much taller than me. That helped seal the deal that this royal style might work out.
When the dress came, I popped it on right away and, in the midst of a heat spell in NYC, I was actually thankful for the slit, which hit at the prefect spot and totally let the breeze in. In combination with the georgette fabric, which is lightweight and airy, this dress instantly became a summer favorite, perfect for a night out, a wedding or my own low-key garden party. (Hey, a Fourth of July BBQ totally counts, right?)
I also adore the beautiful floral pattern. Reformation offers the exact same style in three additional prints, FYI.
But back to Beatrice and her style evolution: She really is killing it as of late. Is it a new stylist? A post-motherhood wardrobe reinvention? (Her daughter Sienna is just about eight months old, after all.)
Either way, I’m excited about it—and can’t wait to see what royal sartorial choices she makes next.
