How to tie the
Jillian Gown & Ryder Dress

Our Jillian Gown and Ryder Dress have a tulle sash connected to the front of the bodice that lets you create strapless, off-the-shoulder, sleeved, and one-shoulder looks. We’ve found 16 ways to style Jillian and Ryder, but feel free to get creative (we’re sure there are countless more!).

First things first,

you will find four loops—two in front and two in back—sewn into the neckline (the front loops can be hard to see!). Thread the ends of the sash through these loops to create the following looks.
