Pull on the Sloan Dress over tights or jeans and set out to face the world. This piece is destined for constant year-round wear; on cold winter days, layer it over long sleeves and woolen tights, and in the spring and summer, wear it with sandals. The diamond yoke and turtleneck design elements are runway ready and interesting to work.
