Here is another example of the great Norman Norell and an ideal preppy chic day dresses. This one is short sleeve with a mock neck and wide belt with Norell's oversized buttons that are rather iconic in his designs. Made of heavy pique cotton, I like to this this is the epitome of tee-shirt dressing, but tres chic. Keep it modern with a Levi's denim jacket and a pair of kicks for a casual look that is All American chic. Although Norell was famous for his mermaid dresses, he also was a great minimalist, and this reminds us of how Norell made a wardrobe for Park Avenue's finest to wear day and night.
