Diane von Furstenberg’s best selling Zarita lace dress has been reinvented in navy and a deep silvery grey for Spring. Having bought it in black in New York a while back I can tell you that although Matches describes it as quaint, I would suggest that there are better descriptions, such as versatile, flattering, form fitting and well worth investing in. I do, however agree that it is very feminine.
The point with this dress is its versatility. You may think being spring/summer that having long sleeves may rule it out, but they are fine, stretch lace and very flattering, particularly if you don’t love going sleeveless. It also has a V neckline at the back and an exposed zip.
This dress will take you everywhere, from smart (very smart) daytime to dinner anywhere you choose. It packs beautifully, and particularly the navy version will carry right on through into autumn and winter, by which time you’ll probably want it in black as well. It is also, in DvF terms, not overpriced, and best of all it will do the job of several dresses as not only can you wear it any time any where but match it with killer heels in winter or gold sandals in summer and you’ll always have the perfect little lace dress.
