All the Wool& dresses look so pretty - but their classics aren't made in a way that flatters my figure. I'm a genuine hourglass shape with broadish shoulders, very curvy overall, and if I wear a swing dress then I just look shapeless. Tried several, sent them back. The Tulip shaped one was too form fitting. The Brooklyn is nice but there weren't enough ways to style it for 100 days, especially it only looks good when I'm wearing it w the v-neckline in front, and belted. Enter the...BRILLIANTLY STYLABLE, COMFY, PROFESSIONAL OR CASUAL, CHAMELEONESQUE BEAUTY: KALLE PONTE!
What I love ❤️ 😍 about this dress: It fits. Has structure. Never looks sloppy. Never makes me look bigger than I am. It's shapely, sharp, so comfortable! The material, richer and thicker than some, is also flattering. Not too short, not too long. I thought it shrank after I washed it (with Woolite in cold water, drip dry) -- but it stretched right back to normal. I wore 100 Kalle outfits: turtlenecks & tees underneath, belted & unbelted, structured blazer, flowy cardigan, sweatshirt, layered over a dress, with various shirts on top, with all kinds of colors & styles, accessorized by scarves & hats. I worked as a youth group advisor for a week on an island in summer. I went to work in my office. I packed and moved halfway across the country. I went out to dinner. Lounged around reading. The dress worked for everything. (It is a bit too hot 🔥 on 86 degree days, but generally....) VERSATILITY! Hurray!
I initially ordered a large per the size chart, but that was way too big. Medium was perfect! I don't necessarily think you can tell how things will look based on size charts or other people's reviews; it depends on how we are apportioned. I'm a Medium in the Kalle, Brooklyn, and Renata, while a different dress was too small even in size large and others looked unflattering even if they "fit." But I have noticed, in the photos on this site, that the Kalle looks nice on people with many sizes and shapes.
I really, really wish it came in more colors. I have the black. I wish there were a red, green, or non-dark blue... please?
Have you met my new best friend, Kalle?! Kalle is literally my perfect dress. She’s sleek and professional, the perfect length for my 5’8” frame, hugs me in all the right places, yet moves with me, and is comfy with just the right amount of stretch. That ponte fabric is like magic. The pockets are huge and you guessed it—perfect!! She is my holy grail of black dresses. Kalle is timeless, classy, and sophisticated. I can’t even describe to you how good I feel in this dress. She makes me look like I have an hourglass figure. This will be the dress I wear anytime I need to feel more confident. You know that dress that just fits you so well that you can focus on whatever else you have to accomplish that day knowing you look put together? If you haven’t met Kalle yet, I’d encourage you to give her a try! Her online picture doesn’t do her justice, so please don’t pass her over! I looked at all of these online reviews and I still hesitated to purchase. I just had to come back and write my own review. Also if you’re worried about the zipper, don’t be! You don’t need to use the zipper to get her on. She just slips over your head. Wool&, please make Kalle in even more vibrant colors!
I took a shot with this dress even though others had higher ratings. I love it! It’s the perfect sheath dress with pockets! The fabric is thicker, so it hides some imperfections on my curvy body. It is tighter, but it really was flattering. This and the Frankie short equals perfection. I felt very put together, and it can be dressed up or down. This was one of my successful staples I brought in my carry on for a one month trip. I ordered the black. Totally worth every penny. Super high quality.
Love the dress! It is the quintessential little black dress! I know that I will be wearing it for years to come.
Wow! This dress is a dream come true. I have like 4 this style in not wool and got rid of all of them to replace them with Kalle. It is form fitting. Great with a jacket. I love how it hugs my curves. Perfect for after work drinks or more dressier occasions.
