bluSh babyDoll DreSSeS
The babydoll dress is an eternal favourite for the season of summer romance, and it has returned this year in a bevy of
soft blush hues. At Fendi,  owing long sleeves and a waist-cinching cut subtly highlighted the female form, while Chloé showcased soft tiers, delicate pleats and sheer sleeves. Our favourite iteration
just might belong to Philosophy di Lorenzo Sera ni, where pale pastel pink combined with light yellow for a romantic tulle number. With its lacy asymmetrical hem and barely there straps, this version of the blush babydoll dress suits the sultry temperatures of the season. From daytime cotton to evening lace, the latest takes on the babydoll dress are a great wardrobe addition.
