“The ponte dress is designed to make every woman look and feel amazing. It’s about building confidence through style.”

THE FABRIC

We’ve crafted these essential styles in Ponte di Roma, a sleek, substantial knit fabric. Most commonly called simply “ponte,” its double-knit interlock design ensures that it firmly holds its shape while remaining as soft and flexible as your favorite T-shirt. Durable and comfortable, ponte is the perfect choice for travel, as it remains virtually wrinkle-free so you can head from the flight to your big meeting looking perfectly polished.

THE LINING

The hidden secret of these great dresses is their power mesh lining. It works like built-in shapewear to smooth trouble spots and keep everything right where you want it. The slimming lining and the forgiving nature of ponte combine to give you a flawless, flattering fit for all-day confidence.

It is the picture of office-ready refinement — with enough feminine allure for date night dressing. It pairs perfectly with pumps or flats and provides an elegant background for luminous pearls or your favorite scarf.
