Raving About the Riva
The leaves are falling, the wind is blowing, and the days are getting shorter, but for goodness’ sake I am just not ready to pack away those summer dresses. While getting out my winter clothes I found my favorite cool weather piece…the Riva Dress! The Riva dress kept me warm and comfortable last winter while attending an art walk in the midst of a Colorado snow storm. Needless to say, I was excited to pull this dress out again for the cold weather that’s settling in. The fabric is uber soft and made from recycled (which always puts a smile on my face) polyester. The micro-poly is moisture wicking and breathable, making it the perfect winter dress to fit my active lifestyle.
The Riva is made of thick, warm fabric, while still providing comfort if the temps begin to climb. And it’s the perfect length–it hits me just below the knees, which makes it perfect for those great cool weather styles. I stay warm in the fall by pairing the Riva with boots, and I add tights in the winter (thankfully, the fabric doesn’t cling!). What I love most about this dress, though, is the fit. The dress hugs me in all the right places–finally a dress that doesn’t require that “perfect,” slim body to look amazing. It’s so hard to find a winter dress that is flattering and functional, but the Riva does it all. The skirt of the dress has a bit of flare to it, which adds a nice touch to dress it up. It even looks great as a cover up when I leave my yoga studio, I just throw it on over my strappy tank and pants and I’m ready to go.
My favorite is the Pomegranate color–a nice deep red. I’m already planning on having it on hand as my go-to holiday dress this year. No ugly Christmas sweater for me, I have the Riva dress!
