Ask the Edit: Jersey Dresses for Summer
Jun 28, 2018
I don’t spend much money on my weekend wear because I need all the money for work clothes. Last summer, you convinced me to start wearing jersey dresses, and they were perfect for me. The trouble is that I haven’t seen many for sale this summer that weren’t way too millennial looking for me. I’m 33, and I don’t want armholes that hang to my navel or super short swing dresses. Help a fellow lawyer out?
This summer, I switched it up to wrap dresses. Mostly because I’ve gained a little weight, and they’re a flattering option for that issue. But I still have a few easy jersey dresses for the days when I just want to be casual and comfortable.
I’ve discussed my adoration for Amazon’s Daily Ritual brand before, but this season, they are making some great, basic dresses.
This Jersey V-Neck Dress ($18) is the perfect solution for dog walking, quick coffee runs, pool days, etc.. It also comes in seven colors. Daily Ritual’s jersey tank dress ($15) is also high on my list for being the best post-gym dress (aka. I am not getting dressed again) I’ve ever owned. And for those days when you don’t want a snug fit, this short sleeve swing dress is a good choice.
Daily Ritual also offers plus-size and maternity options.
Other options include this COS a-line jersey dress ($49) with a more modern shape. I’d also check out this James Perse tank dress. And if you like prints, Boden always has a few pretty jersey dresses in vibrant prints.
