Brome includes three garment options: a button up shirt with full length sleeve, a knee-length dress with 3/4 sleeve, and a sleeveless maxi dress. Subtle gathers at the yoke make for a flattering fit without darts. Brome’s slightly scooped neckline is finished with a minimal band collar. The henley placket is a charming detail on both dress versions, while the shirt features a classic full front placket.
For endless Brome variations, switch up the sleeve lengths or placket styles!
