The stores are filled with dresses but I see few women wearing them. It seems that most women reserve their dresses for fancy occasions. Perhaps that’s because there is a shortage of great casual dresses. I love how easy a dress is, you just pop it on and go. No matching or coordinating necessary. Today I’m sharing a terrific dress that’ll go everywhere you need to take it.
This is the Victoria Dress by Comfy USA at Artful Home. I have several things by this designer. I love their distinctive shaping, ultra soft fabric and that they’re designed and made in the USA.
I knew this dress would be special the second I saw it. It’s a simple dress with a unique shape. It has a fitted silhouette, V-neckline, 3/4 sleeves, figure-enhancing stripes, and unusual skirting detail.
The stripes are seamed on a diagonal down the front for a very slimming effect. The dress is fitted to the waist then flares dramatically into a voluminous square. This gives the dress a lot of graceful drape. It also gives a lot of room if you happen to be larger on the bottom than the top.
They’ve turned the stripes vertically on the back of the dress which is extra slimming. I like its current length but I’m going to have it shortened a few inches so it’ll be a better proportion for me to wear with flats.
I layered a few long necklaces rather that one that filled the neckline. This helps me look taller by balancing the length of the dress.
This dress is sized from XS to 3X. For reference, I am 5’4″ and wearing a medium.
The Victoria dress will be for travel because it doesn’t show wrinkles and folds compactly. Being a classic black and white stripe also adds to its versatility during travel. I also love this dress by Comfy which would be perfect to wear while traveling.
Do you love a great dress?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day!
