Styling The Virago Dress

One of the things I pride myself on is long lasting, versatile design.  I want you to feel special and unique when wearing your Brooke Da Cruz piece but it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice timelessness or being able to dress your piece up or down so that it can be a wardrobe staple for years to come!

I’d love to introduce you to a few pieces coming very soon that will be available for pre-order for a short amount of time!  This special pre-order round also means you’ll be able to get your hands on a never to repeated discount!

Here at Brooke Da Cruz we are clear in our values and in our value and I want to offer this once off discount to say thank you for being an early adopter & for supporting what we are building.

 First up is the Virago Dress:

(The Virago Dress will be available in Black or White as well as the Print and Grey seen above)

First of all, this Dress can also be worn separately as a top and a skirt so you have 3 styles in 1!

(examples of top worn separately)

The fit of this dress is completely adjustable: both the top and the skirt are wrap and tie styles so even if your body changes slightly you can tie tighter or loosen accordingly.  The tie closure in the top also allows for just the right amount of bust support you need and can be worn with a strapless bra, stick on bra or braless.

The dress can be dressed up or down suiting everything from a girls lunch to a wedding, depending on how you style and accessorise. 

I've personally worn the skirt with a plain white tee and slides for a weekend trip to the markets and the top with a pair of casual shorts.  They really just work for wherever you are going.

To top it all off, like all BDC pieces the Virago dress is made by our beautiful Fair Trade studio in the Himalayas and the fabric is 100% Organic Cotton, handwoven by marginalised women in India, creating financial independence for the ladies.
