As July winds down and we face the dog-days of August, my hemlines just keep getting shorter! Maybe it’s to show off the tan I’ve been working on all summer or maybe it’s just too darned hot, but I’ve been absolutely living in little dresses this year. I still love my floaty long skirts or a crisp pair of white jeans, but they have all been hanging forlornly in my closet since temperatures hit 95 degrees – and stayed there!
The perfect solution to looking hot (but not feeling the heat) is a lingerie-inspired, barely there dress by designer Anjai Kumar. Her custom look is achieved with signature details and meticulous hand work – for a unique look that’s a cross between couture and contemporary chic. And, her line is just filled with fun and flirty pieces that are sure to raise the temperature – his!
Each of Anjali’s pieces exude elegance, but also have a dash of whimsy. I think that her deceptively simply designs are created for the woman who is inherently secure, sexy and confident – someone with no need to hide behind outlandish details, splashy prints, or other forms of “caricature” dressing.
One standout from Anjali’s most recent collection is the Spaghetti Strap Flare Dress. This adorable dress is shown here in a soft blush pink with a delicate and detailed floral inspired print in 100% silk georgette, lined in contrasting taupe silk.
Impeccably tailored, the spaghetti straps are adjustable and the dress has a concealed zipper (a tiny detail that I personally love). This dress is also incredibly flattering – it just flows over the body as if it was custom made just for you.
The Spaghetti Strap Flare Dress is also available in solid silk charmeuse for an evening look. Available in a rainbow of sexy hues from classic black or navy, to icy pink or stunning silver, to delicious chocolate, you’re sure to find just the right shade. Available in sizes XS, S, M, L. Retail $302.00
Although not immediately apparent from her beautiful collections, designer Anjali Kumar’s career in fashion has taken a few interesting turns. Following a successful career on Wall Street from 1992 to 2000, Anjali finally answered the siren call of fashion. And we’re so glad she did!
To pursue her lifelong fascination with fashion, she attended the Fashion Institute of Technology. She simultaneously designed custom clothing for an exclusive clientele, which led to the successful launch of her retail label.
With a flirty dress by Anjali Kumar, the heat is on!
