Reiss Dawn Dress in Red

The Reiss Dawn Dress is a knee length fit and flare dress. The fabric is a combination of bright red pleats, mesh and applique with a nude underlay that is shorter than the skirt outer layer. Sleeveless, the dress has a scoop neck and keyhole back with sheer detail to the upper back. The dress fastens at the back with a hidden zip.

The bodice combines mesh and embroidered appliqué. There is a slit in the skirt at the back.

The dress is available in UK sizes 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14

Fabric and Care: 100% polyester; lining 100% polyester ; cool hand wash or dry clean

It’s the attention to detail that makes this dress so eye catching. The soft and feminine style, with flirty shorter detail to the front centre is a winner. Team the dress with pale pink or pale neutral tones to complement it – try teaming it with the Reiss Geta Boyfriend Blazer in cream and the Fifi Bib Front Sandals.
