Old Navy Jersey Belt Maxi ($34)

The wares at Old Navy are very hit or miss.  Some pieces I love, some pieces are so cheaply made that it’s laughable.  I’ve always had good luck with their jersey dresses, however.  I like the neckline on this maxi.  This fit-and-flare ponte dress also looks like a winner.  I also found this cross-front jersey dress, and I own this rugby-stripe dress.  The weight of the material is good, it’s a little too short for work though.

Old Navy also has a few other products that I’ve had good luck with.  The loungewear is great if you’re looking for something comfortable and inexpensive to wear around the house.  I like their Active hoodies and their drawstring, jersey skinny pants.  Their outerwear is also good.  I like the look of this lightweight tie jacket.

Old Navy is one of the few brands that makes regular, petite, tall and plus-size pieces.  So there really is a little something for everyone.  And if none of the clothes catch your eye, these sleek D’orsay flats look pretty good to me.

    I recently perused Old Navy (can’t remember why) and was pleasantly surprised at the selection I found. I remember it being nothing but badly fitting jeans, cheap flip flops, and t-shirts, but it seems like they’ve gotten a bit more fashionable recently. Good picks.

    Has anyone tried the Pixie pant that Amy Poehler is advertising? Are they as magical as they claim?

    As a tall lady, I peruse Old Navy often. Just picked up the cross front dress and fit and flare in tall. Especially happy with the cross-front. Just a note–with the fit and flare, you’ll have to wear a racerback bra!

    Old Navy’s Active line is fantastic.. I like the leggings I bought there just as much as the $80 ones I bought from Lulu. I own many compression capris and full-length leggings and LOVE them- great for running and hot yoga

  5. Old Navy was pretty much the only place where I could find cute, cheap maternity wear a few years ago. I still wear one of the jersey dresses (with a belt!). It’s held up through a few summers, and I’m not exactly careful with it.

    I LOVE Old Navy’s workout clothes. I’m really furious with them about jeans at the moment, though. I have 3 pairs of the rockstar jeans in the same size and all 3 fit differently. According to the tags, they’re identical. I’ve tried to replace them since 2 ripped, but I cannot get a pair of the exact same jeans to fit. It’s really infuriating.

  7. Ashley says:

    Thanks for this post. I’ve been wanting to get a maxi dress or two for the summer without breaking the bank, and I completely forgot about Old Navy. And to echo the others’ sentiments – Old Navy’s active wear is great.

  8. GingerR says:

    I’ve never had a pair of pants from Old Navy, nothing no matter what the style, works for me.
    However, I love their button-up shirts and tanks.
    It’s worth a swing through periodically.

  9. Thank you. Just bought some clothes from Old Navy. I forget they have petites online.

  10. Sarah says:

    I have two pairs of the Pixie pants. They’re great, but I would advice going up a size if you don’t want them suck-the-body tight. I haven’t worn them enough to know how well they hold up to multiple wears and washes.

  11. J says:

    I absolutely love workout clothes and PJs from old navy but that’s pretty much it. I haven’t had great luck with the fit of their dresses. They look good online but fit my body in a really strange way. I was hoping to have good luck with jeans since they sell them in a short length for petites but they are definitely poor quality, they ripped after 2 or 3 wears.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
