Beautiful draping material and well cut so that it fits perfectly. It is designed so that you step into it, no buttons or zips to bother with. There is a band of material at the waist which adds definition. I bought it to wear casually over summer but I can dress it up for work with a cotton jacket. I would like to say that Next is very poor at describing the garments on their website e.g. how do you get into it, does it have a zip/buttons etc?
