Alessandro Dell'Acqua: Gridlock Alert
The grid pattern on this Alessandro Dell'Acqua dress appears like flexible tiles--expensive tiles exported from some foreign locale. The pale blue rims on the shoulders and sides and the pale beige flanks and hem intensify the seaside resort feel that the dress imparts, and the exaction of the geometric shapes manages to highlight, rather than repress, the feminine form. Instead of adding blue or white sandals, I would choose nude ones, as they elongate the leg.
