If I had the dough, I'd spend most of my time in the drape-y, muted, earth friendly offerings from Stella McCartney. But why daydream about unaffordable eco fashion when there are so many green options within reach?
Take this pretty pink dress from Loyale. The color may be called "rose" instead of "berry", and you might have to scrounge up your own sash belt, but I'd say that neckline and the overall loose-yet-structured effect capture the look of Stella perfectly. Both dresses may be on sale right now, but the Loyale option is still half the price of the designer version. This spring, wear it as a tunic paired with your straight leg (but not too tight) pants, then throw it on over swim suits and flip flops when the weather warms up.
Loyale Organic Weston Dress $98 from $196. Of course, if you shorted American and are feeling flush, you can always run over to Barneys for the original $249 from $995.
p.s. I have to also link to the adorable photo of Inhabitots' Jill Fehrenbacher wearing this dress -- at 5 months pregnant! Maybe it's the glow that makes her look so good, but maybe it's also the dress. One thing's for sure, though: if she can look fresh and tiny with a baby on board, this dress will hide any extra holiday cookie poundage anyone else is carrying.
