Sheer illusion net gives the Rachel Allan 3990 short dress the look of two-pieces in one. Colorful beading creates a necklace of gems on a mock turtleneck while straps connected to a sheer shoulder give the look of an off-the-shoulder neckline. The cropped top connects to the high waisted skirt with beaded trim. The attached pencil skirt is on trend, sitting above the natural waistline and fitted to fingertip length in soft, stretchy jersey. The embellishments continue to the back, which discreetly zips up the center.
