Great lengths: our pick for a long summer dress
Long dresses have been a hit this summer, and this German-designed Marc Cain number at Paola Di uptown is one of our favourite versions, not least because it hits on another trend: the techno influence as seen in the Versace, Escada and Pucci spring collections. Besides, subtle animal print (around the neckline) is always in style. The sleeveless dress is versatile—it can go from day to night with a simple accessory change—and transitional; add a little biker jacket (as shown in this photo) and wear it until fall breaks. It is on sale right now ($350, down from $500), along with the rest of the store’s summer offerings. Paola has a number of exclusive lines from all over the world not found elsewhere in the city. It’ll be worth the trip.
