Let me tell you… this dress is a VIBE. I am obsessed with it more than I can say and basically I want to wear it every day. I think it’s one of the best things J. Crew has released this year. So basically… everyone should get it 😂
I love the mixing of the block prints and the stripes– the various blues. It’s extra comfortable and perfect for a “carefree” dress. Like it would be just as great with sneakers and flats as it would be with espadrilles and heeled sandals.
When I posted about it on Instagram Stories, I got a lot of questions:
How is the sizing?
It fits fairly true to size, if anything you’ll want to size appropriately for your chest. If you have a smaller chest size, I’d go down a size. Since there’s smocking on the back and the straps are adjustable, the dress really contours to your own shape. (I’m wearing a 0.)
Are the buttons functional?
YES! And the best part is that there is a substantial flap of fabric under the buttons so you don’t have to worry about gaping.
What bra do you wear?
Frankly, I go braless. I think if you need/want a bra, an adhesive option would be the best route.
How tall are you?
I’m just under 5’6″ (with a long torso and short legs).
