* The Jess Dress by A.P.C.
* 100% cotton Italian chambray
* Unlined, removable sash belt and pockets at the hips

We love A.P.C. for cute and causal styles that look crisp, refined and put together. The Atelier de Production et de Création, famously known as A.P.C, was launched in 1987 by Jean Touitou in France. The designer sought to create beautiful but relaxed pieces that would stand out in a cluttered culture of excess. What has resulted are consistent collections of timeless garments with a clean-lined aesthetic. The label has become the epitome of low-key Parisian cool. Each piece is designed with thorough attention to detail and cultivates a transcendent, effortless appeal.

When we spied the Jess dress by A.P.C. it was instantly on our list for summer must-haves. The chambray dress is sweet and simple, easily paired with shoes and accessories you already own, and is a great style for day or night. The thick Italian chambray is woven from 100% cotton, keeping a cool and lightweight hand that looks and feels comfortable and not over-done.

The dress sweeps down into a straight silhouette, just above the knee, with a removable sash belt at the waist that ties off at the front. A scoop neckline is notched in front, while vertical pleats add a cool touch of texture. Wide cuffs add a polished touch to the short sleeves and tostitching decorates the hems and pouch pockets at the hips. A slightly rounded hem keeps it casual below, and a hang loop at the back neck adds a classic finish.
