Style Spotlight: The Paisley Raye Aster
The Aster is an amazing dress that I’m totally in love with. I love that it’s super comfortable but still looks elegant. It pairs nicely with tights, leggings or Pixie Pants to give you a year-round look. The sleeves on this dress are so gorgeous. I’m not a big fan of sleeves, like ever, but the sleeves on this dress are sheer or lace and it makes them so breathable.
The Paisley Raye Aster features bishop sleeves. Bishop sleeves are long sleeves that are gathered at the cuff. On the Aster, the cuff is elastic. I was worried that the elastic would be tight or annoying but it really isn’t. It’s loose enough to be comfortable but tight enough to maintain a professional look.
The back of the Aster has a gorgeous keyhole detail. It gives this dress an upscale, elegant look. The keyhole is big enough to make a statement but not so big that your bra straps will show through the back.
My absolute favorite thing about the Aster is the hidden pockets! I mean, who doesn’t love a dress with pockets. The pockets on this dress are nicely tucked into the side seam so they aren’t noticeable. The pockets are big enough to fit a cell phone in without even noticing it’s there.
Like the rest of the Paisley Raye collection, the Aster is pretty true to size. A few details to keep in mind – if you’re broad shouldered or have a big bust, you might want to go up one size.
