At this hectic and busy time of year, I often find myself reaching for dresses because, when facing down a long day of shopping, baking, wrapping, or decorating, they are just so easy. Nothing to coordinate or match. Simply toss it on and go. This casual striped swing dress from Zevres is a perfect example.
The cotton/poly blend is the ultimate in easy-care fabric. It is virtually wrinkle-free. It’s got just enough stretch to make it comfy, but, not so much that it “bags” after a few hours of wear. So, it’s a wonderful option for holiday travel, shopping, or casual events.
Plus, it’s so cute! The classic long-sleeved, body skimming, swing shape looks great with either boots or flats. Toss on a contrasting, cropped cardi. Or simply wear it alone and let the peek-a-boo V-neckline shine.
Although it’s not immediately apparent from the long shots, the stripes are actually created using a sparkly thread, which is slightly raised. (I’ve provided a close up to give a more accurate depiction.)
And, although this dress is long-sleeved, it is very lightweight and somewhat sheer. So, the proper choice of undergarments is essential.
Also, this dress is somewhat longer than others in the same style (it hits mid-knee). For summer, with sandals, I think that length would be too long. But, in winter with boots or tights, I quite like it.
This dress is available in sizes Small through 2XL and it runs just a bit on the large side. Do check the sizing guide to make sure you get the best fit.
It’s a bargain at only $14.88 on Amazon Prime.
