If you're a fan of Peter Pan collars, polka dots, and pleats, then you'll love the latest offerings from Dear Creatures. Designed by Bianca Benitez and Rob Sinclair, the LA-based label is known for blending elements from the past with a fashion-forward perspective to produce modern looks that contain a clever dose of nostalgia.
For spring, Dear Creatures takes their signature retro whimsy aesthetic to new heights with a collection of dresses, tops, and shorts that are schoolgirl-chic, nautical-infused, and '60s-inspired all at once. In other words, Alexa Chung would be pleased. Click through the gallery for some dainty goodness—which includes the two-toned champagne cocktail dress we previously raved about—and shop Dear Creatures here.
