I’ve been partial to midi and knee-length dresses and skirts for the past few seasons, but every now and then a gal’s gotta show off her gams! I spotted a woman wearing this dress on the subway platform a while back, but the train arrived before I had a chance to get the details. So color me ecstatic when I found it at Zara less than a week later. I snatched it up without hesitation and have gotten so many compliments on it. It’s basically like wearing a big cozy sweatshirt, and I’m loving it.
About the Fit
The fit of this dress is boxy and oversized and a bit of a departure from the typical silhouettes I wear. But I think it’s a nice counterbalance given the shorter hemline. The drop shoulders also give it a casual vibe, while the rich embroidery elevates the look and gives the garment more of a luxe feel. The material is pretty substantial, so I’ll be wearing this one with tights or leggings throughout the season.
