Ask Belle: Jersey Casual Dresses
May 29, 2014
I’m on the hunt for some jersey dresses. I want to buy a selection: short sleeve, racer back, maxi and the like for wearing on the weekends. It’s just too damn hot in Florida to wear anything else. Because I’m stocking up, I’d like all of them to cost less than $50.
Thank you! Carver
Jersey dresses, now you’re speaking my language. All casual, all the time. They’re my favorite. You can wear them, wash them. You can dress them up or down. Here are some fantastic, inexpensive choices:
These three dresses are phenomenal. The Merona dress is a good weight, it also wears well. They make several nice dresses in all shapes, colors and sizes. This black and white stripe maxi caught my eye, as did this sleeveless dress with a colorblock band around the bottom. And don’t miss this simple tee in heather grey and black.
Gap also has some good choices, like this racerback tee dress. For maxis, they have this striped cami dress and this short sleeve t-shirt dress. For knee-length dresses, they’ve got this twist-waist dress and this slouchy dress with a circle hem. They also carry many items in tall and petite sizes.
I also find that if you take a run out to Nordstrom Rack, TJ Maxx or Marshall’s, you can find a lot of discounted and inexpensive jersey dresses for sale. But I find that online shopping is the best way to find what you’re looking for at the price you want.
