Almost perfect

I have been looking for a shift/pencil skirt dress for a couple years. I have big hips and have always been skeptical of the comfort and fit of a pencil skirt design but this dress is just about perfect! I got it for an event as I have been wearing the same dress for the last 8 events at work and needed something new lol. Tried both the L & XL, decided on the looser fit of the XL as I have a little bit of a tummy and the L was just slightly more fitted than I preferred. The only problem was gapping at the arm holes. I did take it to a tailor and the gapping was fixed by shortening the shoulders, I also had her lower the zipper since the back neckline was too high for me. With the looser fit I usually don't bother with the zipper, I can just slip it over my head. I did consider raising the hem but ended up leaving it and it is still short enough to put a skirt over it if I feel like changing the look.
I have only worn this on a few occasions so far but it is perfect for a semi-formal work event, or a more business professional look for a work day, but is comfortable enough to toss on for running errands when I just need to feel put together. The pockets are amazing, sleekly fit into the dress design and big enough for even a large phone, which was helpful during the event since I had to have easy access to my phone. I 100% plan on getting the Aegean Teal at some point and would welcome more colors, maybe a light blue, greens, or marionberry.

Kalle is a work dress I can actually wear to work

I laugh at what some clothing companies deem suitable for work. Some reviewers have complained about the Kalle dress being too long, but I am up/down on a rolling stool at work. I don't want a dress that exposes my thighs when I sit, or one whose hem catches under the wheels of the stool; the Kalle length was perfect for me.

The ponte fabric stretches nicely - I am pear-shaped (AAA on top, 39" hips), but have broad shoulders, which makes it hard to find a dress size that balances out those differences. The small size neither pulled too tight across the hips nor gapped too much over the bust. The fabric is thicker than that of the Chloe, which showed underwear lines even though it has a much looser fit. I purchased the Aegean teal, which matched the online photos.

Extra points for any company that gives us women functional pockets!

Slightly disappointed in the 2024 changes

I have a couple of older Kalles that I got secondhand that I absolutely love. But the new revisions with the slightly longer length and slightly wider waist weren’t as flattering for me. Though honestly, I probably would have been fine with it had I not had the earlier version for comparison

Too heavy for me

I got this for a summer trip and it’s way heavier than the other Wool& dresses I’ve tried. It also bunches up funny on my waist and feels too long for my frame. I returned this one.

We're disappointed to hear that the Kalle wasn't perfect for you. We hope your next purchase will be love at first sight!

Love the fit!

I love the fit of this dress. The material is heavier, like a ponte. I haven’t worn it yet escort to try on; weather has been chilly. The dress hits me right art he knew.
