Oh emerald green, how I love thee! After seeing this lovely Lilly Pulitzer Cleme Dress online, I knew that it would be a fabulous and chic addition to the closet for the winter season and beyond. There’s something so festive and fabulous about the hue, right?

You may be asking me, “dresses?!” Are you sure we should be investing in styles like this right now? After all, according to Statistica, clothing sales fell to 1.9 billion U.S. dollars in April 2020 due to coronavirus and pandemic.

Well, I’m a big proponent of dressing up no matter what the occasion. Why not dress up and boost your mood? After all, research shows that mental health is directly correlated with getting dressed up. In 2012, researchers from Northwestern University in the US found that wearing specific articles of clothing had an effect on the wearer’s psychology and performance. Overall, clothes have a symbolic meaning. Therefore, when you wear clothing with a specific meaning, they influence our psychological state.

Why Buy this Lilly Pulitzer Dress?

First, this dress has the most amazing silk fabric. There are speckles of metallic, which adds a dose of sparkle and shine. Talk about a great holiday Lilly Pulitzer dress option! So good.

As many of you know, Lilly Pulitzer tapped me to be one of their brand BFF’s in 2020. Since then, I’ve loved styling various Lilly Pulitzer dresses, jumpsuits, tops, and accessories. Overall, I’ve seen Lilly go beyond their colorful printed cotton dresses into more modern silhouettes.

Also, there are so many reasons to love the dress beyond the chic color. First, the Cleme Dress silhouette is positively divine. The fabric has a pretty flow to it, and the entire garment is fully lined.

Plus, I decided to pair it with my new lilac J.Crew coat, which adds a punch of color. Lilac and green are one of my fave color combos, as you’ve seen with this fun look against this mural. Plus, the Lilly Pulitzer Cleme Dress feels timeless and sophisticated. I truly believe the brand will bring the silhouette back in other options.

In Closing

In closing, I strongly believe we’re about to enter in a new era of glamour. Just like the 1918 flu pandemic, I anticipate we’ll return to glitz and glamour similar to the Roaring 20’s. Gatsby glamour will be alive and well, so why not invest in beautiful dresses?
