Clothes are my strength – I’m a shopping editor, so let me say this. Just a look at my Instagram account tells you that I live for a great outfit. I invest in options that are worthwhile here and there, but when I find a cost-effective treasure that seems much more expensive than it really is, that ‘s when I’re really excited.
Do not worry: I do not keep my latest findings. This midi cotton dress with old navy puff sleeves ($ 38 with BONUS code, originally $ 50) is a summer cottage dream. I first bought this dress in blue and I liked it so much that I also ordered it in white. Every time I wear any of these colors, I get a lot of praise. Friends often confuse it with the famous pajamas, which are much more expensive.
I like the blue version with The Drop Listilla Espadrille wedge chairs ($ 40) and the white version with Altar’d State heeled shoes ($ 70). With that said, both of these outfits look equally great with white sneakers and a denim jacket. Continue reading for all the details of my favorite new summer cotton dress.
What I like about this old navy cotton midi dress
I have a full torso (exactly one D-Cup) and the upper body is supportive enough that I do not have to wear a bra – a dream of hot summer days. I also like the puffy sleeves lined, which gives them great volume. They never look empty or ugly. The fan fabric is comfortable and light and is ideal for the coming months. I appreciate the loose fit around my abdomen and buttocks. These are the widest parts of my body, and it’s hard to find clothes that aren’t too tight in that area. The design is roomy and spacious without looking thick or loose.
What is worth noting
This dress fits the size – I wear a big dress, which I usually look for. I’m covered in blue and white in the image, but the design is also black or pink. (Spoiler Warning: I just ordered the black version.) I notice that I made a mistake by throwing my blue version in the dryer after washing it, so the end of the photo is slightly wrinkled. I ironed it later and now it is softer than ever. I dried the white version, it got much better. I like the look for casual occasions, but if I were going to a formal event, I would probably touch these clothes with my little travel steamer.
Who is this midi dress suitable for?
If you are looking for a classic and versatile outfit that you can wear every week this summer, this is a great option. It can be worn for weekend snacks or for various activities, and it can also be designed more formally for an outdoor dinner or a happy outdoor hour. Plus, the affordable price is great if you have a small budget.
- This dress is available in XS-4X sizes.
- The back of the chest area is smoky, so you will have a little stretch.
- The white version of the dress has an extra liner that makes it opaque.
