Tucker’s silk frock pays homage to a bygone era
What: Tucker’s Silk Frock in Smiling Fan Print
Where: Violet (3012 Granville Street)
Price Tag: $308
Why: Tucker by Gaby Basora is a fashionista favourite and best known for its use of fab prints and bold colour. This exquisite silk dress is no exception; the robin’s-egg-blue hue and vintage shell print are a refreshing change to the safe LBDs women usually opt for. The very wearable silhouette pays homage to the ’20s without looking totally retro, and the deep V neckline perfectly offsets a generous shape. Wear it with a faux-fur stole, sheer stockings, and sparkly heels or, for a more contemporary look, style it with a boyfriend blazer, opaque tights, and platform booties. Load on the eyeliner and paint your pout merlot to complete the look.
