Rachel Pally debuts a do-everything dress for Target's Red Hot Shop

November 8, 2010 |  7:05 am

Los Angeles-based Rachel Pally has joined Corey Lynn Calter, Lauren Merkin and other hip, just-below-the-radar designers in creating an exclusive item for Target's Red Hot Shop -- an initiative that spotlights cool brands through single-item collaborations.

Pally, who's known for her ultra-comfy jersey dresses and separates, created a plum-hued jersey modal frock for Target that converts in seemingly endless ways.

Wrap it into a halter-neck, strapless or wide-strapped dress -- or sling the entire piece around your waist to create a swingy skirt that, in shape and textile, resembles the cover-ups ballerinas wear off-hours.

The $79.99 dress features a black floral print that reminds me of really luxurious wallpaper (and I mean that in the best possible way).

It's a great go-to dress for dinner-and-drinks; go strapless with the boyfriend and halter it up for a night out dancing with the girls.
