I wore it with leggings in the summer (I'm 6' tall so it was a little too short for my comfort, but most dresses are at that height) and in the winter I've tossed a cardigan over it and it looks great. It's my go-to garment for when I need something a little fancier than my typical black tunic, black leggings, black boots aesthetic." —Christina

I can see how this dress can be worn during all seasons; it’s versatile. Finding this dress was such a happy relief, because it’s stylish but different than all the dresses I’ve seen in the stores.

    Promising review: "I got this dress to wear to a November wedding. I styled it with a 70's glam look in mind — it looked and felt amazing. I received a ton of compliments. It's very comfortable and fits well. If you have a smaller bust, you may want to consider sizing down, because there was ample room in the chest even with a large bust." —korki

I will be ordering another in a different color. The material is nice, too. It is not flimsy or sheer like I feared. It is of medium weight and will be warm in fall or winter with a scarf and boots, but still light enough in spring and summer with sandals." —Craig L.
