A pleated knee length skirt and a capped sleeve appear to make this Mariella dress from Kate Spade a perfect choice for church events, family parties, and even the office. Upon closer examination we find another understated detail; a scoop necked back. If the front of the dress was cut like this we might be quick to label it too risqué and immodest. With less fabric in the back this piece has a chance at straying from your personal values. Is the cut too much?
Does Kate’s dress keep modesty in check, or will you choose a safer option this season?
