Because some days you just want to put down the yoga pants and pick up something with a little bit more style. The zip-up dress from Close to the Heart is your answer for those days.
Made in a soft tencel-viscose blended fabric, we've paid attention to the little details... like the gold front zip set against the black dress, which also doubles as breastfeeding access. And the ribbon tie which cinches the dress at the waist (also looks great over a bump!)
The blended woven fabric is super soft and breathable, and looks relaxed and natural.
Perfect for work, weddings and weekends, this dress is will be your best friend all year round.

Why we love tencel
Tencel is a soft, strong and breathable woven fabric, and is one of the most environmentally friendly fabrics.
Tencel drapes well and, like linen, has a lovely natural look. Tencel fabrics are absorbent and have anti-bacterial properties, making it ideal for New Zealand's hot summers.
Tencel is durable and washes well. All our fabric is pre-washed so you don't have to worry about shrinkage. We recommend washing all our items in cold water (it's better for your your powerbill and the environment!), on a gentle cycle or in a bra bag (to prevent snagging on other items).
Tencel is sourced from eucalyptus trees using sustainable farming practices. The trees are grown in forests that have earned Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification that the products come from socially and environmentally responsible forests, and the European Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification has also endorsed Tencel's farming practices as sustainable.
