When I did my spring edition of dresses with grown-up hemlines a little while back, several of you weighed in to say you’d like to see some more reasonably-priced specimens, and so I bring you just that, starting with this rather elegant wrap dress in a nice light camel hue.
An embroidered smocked dress that looks like the easiest thing to throw on ever.
And I love the graceful empire waist on this pretty floral crepe number.
The smocking and puffy shoulders here are girly flourishes I don’t typically go for but very much like in this case.
Smart buttons line the side of this simple and pretty linen dress.
This has a peasant-top-ish vibe I like, and the dusty rose hue is pretty good too.
A flattering twist detail dress that looks ready-made for Zoom meetings.
This white dress actually has a very, very light plaid print that really makes it.
This printed belted dress looks so fancy, but in reality it rings in at just a speck over $125.
This oversized crisp white shirtdress is so out of my playbook it’s not even funny.
Such a pretty floral and a really feminine shape.
Yay, thank you for this! I buy most of my dresses vintage on Etsy lately because it’s so hard to find good quality, affordable clothes. Some of these are great.
Did you watch the Friends reunion? what dress is Marta Kauffman wearing?She looks how I want to look over 50!
Even though I don’t wear sleeveless anything anymore, that Madewell linen blend is so perfect I may just pull out my credit card anyway.
Why is & Other Stories so hostile to anyone of average size or above? It’s not like they have some principled commitment to minimizing fabric usage or anything.
