The Tide features a fun and trendy dress with an “overalls” style halter strap. It is designed for knit fabrics and comes with both a half circle skirt for a sleek, modern look and a full circle option for the girls that love to twirl. Both skirt widths are available in peplum and knee lengths. It pairs perfectly with a cropped Tundra sweater for a cooler weather look and a pair of Rocky Shore tights when choosing the peplum length.
