Dresses with grown-up hemlines: winter edition, part 2

7

I love the plunging neckline on this metallic ribbed number.

Here’s a floral one that you can wear straight through spring and beyond.

The draping here is so cool, and flattering too.

I like the slightly Grecian vibe here.

The three-quarter sleeves on this ribbed knit dress are a nice touch.

Such a great tie dye print on this flowy shirtdress.

A slightly slinky leopard print that also looks super-comfortable.

This is just so pretty and drapey and easy, and I like the kind of hippie girl print.

The polo collar here endows this one with an almost preppy vibe.

The mix of prints here is quite winning, and I like the low tie-neck.

I don’t usually like the earth tones, but I think the hue on this slinky silk wrap dress is really nice.

I’d wear this cool dress with a cashmere cardigan or shrunken leather jacket.

A turtleneck sweaterdress that’s quite covered-up, but also kind of curve-hugging and sexy.

Such a pretty neckline and color on this lovely specimen.

And finally: shirtdress with a nicely forgiving cut.

    The drapey hippie girl frock (I’ve always wanted to say that) has my heart. Interesting dresses make getting ready so easy. Great selection, Kim!

    Here’s a hive mind question….I feel that when I wear a dress with a “string” tie or “self” tie as in the floral print No.6 dress (second one down) I look like my waist is nonexistent. I usually switch out the self-belt/tie belt with a regular belt. Is this a middle-aged thang? Or am I simply overly critical?

      I like that choice, CW! ‘Course, I’m middle-aged.

    The aqua striped number would have been perfect if they hadn’t put in that waist wrap. I’m kind of over those. (why not just darts?) … It’s still a great dress though, you-all should buy it. I’m not sure I wear light aqua… but, maybe I do. … Also loved the panther-block sneakers!!! yyyyesssssss

      I wonder if there’s a way to remove it. Also the blue tye-dye is lovely. They don’t want to tell me what it’s made of though, odd.

    I am going to attempt to do my good deed of the week and share a little boring, yet useful information for the collective mental file regarding cold weather dress wearing. (Of course, there’s a chance everyone else has already figured out what I’m about to mention…) I’m a person who loves a long dress-tights-clompy boots setup in cold weather, only to be annoyed by static. This year, I FINALLY remembered to look for a half slip with anti static properties. The one thing that complicated it for me is that I’m 5’3″, which I like to call the tall of short. So, trying to find a half slip that is long enough, but not too long for the long skirts of a tall of short person can be tricky. I was willing to spend a little extra, but to my surprise, the brand that had the best length range (24, 28, 30, and 32 inches) was Vanity Fair. Of course, now that I have the half slip, the weather has gone all spring rain. If it ever becomes cold again here, well, at least I’ll be prepared.

    That stripey cap-sleeeved one is intriguing. And I’m a sucker for pockets, so that last one! [Kim, I wonder if you’d do a post on subscriptions – purchase/rental, or both? I’ve been incredibly disappointed with StitchFix. My friend is trying Nuuly, which she’s enjoying but seems v pricey to me. Would love your take. Apologies if you’ve already addressed this. Thanks!]
