Though the term “gauze” may have you thinking of wrapping swollen wrists and padding bandages, gauze fabric was originally made of silk and used exclusively for clothing. Today, gauze can be made from a variety of fibers and is ideal for light and airy ensembles, warm-weather attire, and ephemeral silhouettes. Fashion wide-leg trousers for heading to a spring barbecue, or a wrap-dress for warm days at work. Utilize a stiffener for a more structured silhouette, or allow this airy textile to flutter with bell sleeves and circle skirts.
The Mallow Dress

Foggy and flirty, this slouchy dress is the quintessential spring silhouette. A faux wrap-dress that’s both comfy and cute, made of gauze it’ll breath like a dream and fit in with your fashion. Add a sparkling belt for a more cinched waist, or use cord rope for a subtle sailor style. Adorn the hemline with a simple ikat trim for a pop of print, or utilize feather fringe for some fun fashion!
The Ursi Ensemble

Insert a lining for a pop of print at the lapels, or create a detachable sleeve using looped elastic and small cover buttons. Pair with chunky wedges for brunch by the beach, or a bejeweled necklace made of appliques for a show-stopping statement piece.
