A Thanksgiving Pairing: Dudley x Walker & Wade

A female-founded brand based in Greenwich, CT that designs clothing to make women look and feel their best. Sound familiar? It’s our story—and also the one behind Walker&Wade, founded by Laurette Kittle. The brand’s flattering “beach-to-table” dresses in memorable prints have become fast favorites among women of all ages. 

“In founding Walker&Wade, I felt so strongly that I wanted to make every woman who wears one of our dresses feel beautiful,” says Laurette. “We design for women of all generations. There are no rules anymore about when you can or can’t wear something that makes you feel great.”

 Although Walker&Wade is best known for resort wear, our recent photoshoot shows how easily the dresses transition into colder months with warmer Dudley layers. Paired with our Cat Rock Cardigan in Buttercream, the Walker&Wade Carrie Dress in Amber is a perfect Thanksgiving look, for ultimate ease whether you’re hosting or guesting.

“Our brands’ high seasons are flip-flopped, so we wanted to show how effortless it is to repurpose our dresses throughout the year when you just add a Dudley,” says Molly, president & co-designer of Walker&Wade. “They complement each other so well!”

“Just like our dresses, whenever I wear a Dudley, people always stop and ask me, ‘Where’s that from?’ We love being part of the same community of like-minded, female-founded brands,” adds Laurette.

We can’t wait to see how you mix & match both collections together!
