The Midnight Low Back Dress Three Ways

You've all been obsessing over our Midnight Low Back Dress in silk and so many of you have been asking us how to style it! This piece was inspired by our low back dresses in linen and adapted to be the perfect layering piece for winter! See below for three ways you can style the midnight low back dress!

Layered.

We love pairing our Midnight Low Back Dress with our Moss Long Sleeve top! The pull string sleeves on the long sleeve top and deep draped back on the dress creates a unique and stylish outfit! 

Styled. Pair the Midnight Low Back Dress with the Own Way Coat for those cooler nights. When you want to wear something that's elegant and shows off a bit of skin but it's freezing the Own Way Coat is perfect to throw on! The weight of the coat keeps you warm even on those windy cold winter nights!

The Original.

Simply wearing the Midnight Low Back Dress by itself looks absolutely stunning! The deep draped back, shoe string straps, deep neck line and side splits accentuates the right curves. Pair with furry slides for a day look or add a belt and heels to dress it up for an elegant night look!

The looks we're loving this week!

Lately in Bangalow it's been absolutely freezing at night, but rather warm during the day! That's the beautiful Australian Winter though, you can head to the beach during the day but at night you need layers and coats to keep warm!

Check out some styles we're loving to wear during this weather below! 

Evie Dress

The Evie Dress

This comfortable 100% cotton dress is perfect to slip on for a busy day running errands, relaxing, or heading to the beach! The adjustable pull string allows you to easily style the dress to your body type, gorgeous mumma @rubytuesdaymatthews has adjusted the dress to sit comfortably over her preggy belly! We personally enjoy wearing it quite oversized. The triangle cut out details on the bottom hem and cuff hems adds a beautiful touch to this timeless design.   

Vivi Dress

The Long Vivi Dress

One of our most popular styles! We love throwing this on for a day at the beach or shopping trip. This dress is 100% linen and the fabric is wonderfully breathable and durable, making this a very comfortable and versatile piece. This oversized style looks great on various body shapes, the high triangle split on the bottom hem shows off your lower legs and the deep V neck subtly accentuates the bust. @jessbellll wearing loosely fitted around the pool for a relaxing day in the sun. Jess layers this with the bridge top and lint tights to wear during the cool nights.

The Knitted Sand Dress This dress is an absolute favourite to wear here at Johansen! We love wearing this 100% cotton dress during the cooler days with slides, and styling it with heels, a belt and the Own Way Coat at night. Exposed stitching runs vertically down the front of the dress giving a slimming look while accentuating the curves, the hems of the dress are comfortably fitted around the ankles and wrists. @londonxboston has paired this style with leather slides and a cute backpack to roam the streets of NYC.ย

Influencer Lunch

To kick start the Splendour In the Grass weekend we partnered with the best Australian tanning brand, Bondi Sands to host an intimate lunch for some of our favourite influencers! The girls loved the decadent three-course lunch accompanied with French champagne at our gorgeous local cafe, Harvest. We really wanted to make this event special and intimate so we held the lunch in the stunning old Bakery of Harvest. We styled it with beautiful flower arrangements by beautiflora, tall candles and vintage rugs from Island Luxe. To spoil our lovely girls we loaded them up with Bondi Sands goodie bags and a personally selected Johansen outfit to rock out over Splendour! 

Jessica Johansen-bell the founder of Johansen was discussing future collaborations with the influencers as we sat down to eat, she also told her story of how the brand started and how she created the concept of Johansen. The girls were both inspired and inspiring when they shared their own journeys to lead us all here today. At the end of the lunch Jessica had to leave for half an hour to speak about the event and the exciting future for the brand with a (yet to be named) magazine and the local Northern Star newspaper we can't wait to share this with you all! Stay tuned!

The girls absolutely loved their Johansen pieces and all changed before the lunch started to get splendour ready and of course many photos were taken!
