Style Glossary: Set-in Stone

We here at the ModOffices can’t seem to get enough of the Pin-up Dress. It’s classically chic, easy-to-wear, and its flattering cut earns it a rightful spot in the front of our closets. It’s also a perfect example of this week’s term – a set-in waist!

A fitted horizontal panel of fabric is sewn into the waistline of the dress, creating two seams (one above the natural waist, and one below) and one traffic-stopping look!

What is your favorite style of dress?

    One of my dream dresses to get from your site. My husband would love me to get it but alas, gotta feed the kiddies first.
