The Great Dresses
We love how The Great adds a novel twist to each of its fabrics - this 'Carnival' midi dress is cut from lightweight midnight-blue cotton that's carefully woven with white polka-dots. It has an off-the-shoulder neckline that perfectly frames your décolletage and is smocked at the bodice to highlight your waist. Team with slides and a clutch.
Shirt dresses are perfect for balmy days when you want to look good but also be as comfortable as possible. The Great's cotton-chambray version has all of that, plus a little bit of cool thanks to the rolled cuffs and distressed hem. Wear yours with slides or sneakers.
