Most Wanted: J. Mendel Faille Dress

Published March 18, 2013

Peplums epitomize prim and perfect trimmings: dainty, elegant, simple. But, like that girl in high school with color-coordinated everything, there is such a thing as too pretty. So, J.Mendel hiked it up and skewed it sideways for an angular, thigh-baring hem, slipped in a handy hidden pocket, and paired it with a charming sweetheart neckline. The faille? Epic. It’s for when Little Miss Perfect wants to stay out past her bedtime. Priced at $1,990 and available at Barneys.
