Love the Mara

I absolutely love the Mara. I put it on and wanted to grab a book and cup of tea. It is very comfy and cozy. It is not dressy dress. It can be an everyday dress to zoom off the the grocery, out to lunch or to a movie and you look good and feel great.

I wish there were more colors. A deep plum or deep teal would be wonderful. For winter a holiday red would be fun.

Beautiful form, absolutely love

I had the Willow swing long in a medium for my challenge but ended up selling it because it felt to loose and long. I contemplated altering it but decided to sell it and get this instead after seeing someone in it on FB. I love it as much as I thought I would! I do wish the neck was more of a cowl or a hoodie but that’s my only “complaint.” I’m just not the biggest fan of a much turtleneck which this reminds me of but not as snug. I can tuck this in to be a shirt, easily, even into jeans! It’s short but more than enough coverage. I am so happy with this dress!! I will wear it all fall and winter long. Glad IN had a few cold May days so I could wear it before fall! (In this picture, I’m standing on an ottoman, not super tall!)

Comfort clothing

Like a warm stew on a cold night, my Mara dress makes me feel emotionality secure. It's warm, comfortable, snuggly. Living in there Pacific Northwest even summer can be cool, butt Mara keeps me comfortably warm, not sweaty. I love it.

A hidden gem!

I seriously love this dress. So far I own a Rowena, Ellie, Sierra, Willow, and Fiona dress. Plus the Laurel tunic. This is the same fabric as the Sierra (which I really love) so I decided I should give the Mara a chance, just based on the fabric.

I absolutely love this dress. It’s delightful and cozy and stretchy. And to be honest, I wasn’t sure if I would love it. The first time I tried it on it didn’t appeal to me. But I tried it again the second day and something clicked- and I fell in love.

I get compliments on this when I wear it. I feel amazing. This dress is as comfortable sweatpants but looks so much more put together!

Amazing Mara

I'm on day 36 of wearing my Mara sweatshirt dress for the 100 day challenge. It's been the most comfortable and most worn dress I've ever had! I've been comfortable each day regardless of the temperature which has ranged from below zero to near 80. I'm not a dress person, just a jeans and t-shirt girl all my life. I live in the middle of nowhere so have very few occasions to dress up. I've never spent $158 on a dress in my life! But, I've also never worn anything 36 days in a row...let alone 100! What is amazing to me is that this dress hasn't stretched out or lost it's shape in any way. I was hesitant about using Mara for the 100 day challenge because it didn't look quite as versatile as some of the other dresses. As it turns out, it is quite flattering on it's own and is easily belted or a couple inches tucked into jeans!

Too warm for 100 day challenge

I was excited to wear this dress for 100 days. Alas, April weather in NYC is getting too warm for a wool dress. I start sweating as soon as I put it on. After persevering for 22 days, I need to drop out. Saving the dress for fall and winter weather. It is comfy with leggings. Probably the mock turtleneck makes it warmer than other dresses as well.

Wonderfully comfortable!

Very attractive! It looks exactly like the picture. And it is perfectly utilitarian, although not perfect (the collar is somewhat loose), the dress is still incredibly attractive. The fabric is soft and comfortable, not scratchy at all. And, it washes like a dream! It is one of my favorite dresses. I liked the first one so much, this is my second one.

Wonderful new addition!

I thought I was going to wait and get the Camellia for my rewards dress but the Mara was so intriguing I decided to go ahead. I'm glad I did! Because this was more fitted, I initially ordered a size larger than my Fiona dress, but after hanging the dress overnight, it seemed to loosen up a bit so I ordered a second in my usual size. The first one I got was black, and it was nice & sleek, almost too fancy feeling for me (I never "dress up"). I ended up with the Washed Navy, but to me it's more of a dark charcoal and is super versatile. I was a little sad that we got some warmer weather right afterwards and I have only worn Mara twice now, but I can see it being a real fall/winter staple.

Super cosy, casual to dress

Mara is my fifth Wool& dress. I completed my Challenge with Sierra, then added a Clara, Fiona, and Laurel to my wardrobe. Because I love them all it was inevitable that I would consider another offering from this brand. With Mara I wasn’t sure I liked her styling though, the neck line is unusual and it’s line is straight but my body is not. When browsing through the lineup my husband selected Mara for me, so I trusted his judgment.
I originally ordered a small like all of my other wool& dresses, but I needed to return and upsize to medium. I measure between sizes and Mara’s straight line is less forgiving than the others styles.
Once I received the correct size I really like the dress. What’s not to love about a sweatshirt dress? It’s extremely cozy so, she’s best for cooler weather. I live in the piedmont of North Carolina. Since I received Mara we have had weather from the low 30’s to upper 70’s. I like Mara best when it’s cooler than the 60’s F.
The pockets show their contents when I slip my phone or keys into them, but all knits will. I still use them like this a moment when I need my hands free. I’m glad they are there.
I’ve styled Mara ad a tunic top over pants (not fully pulled down) and as a dress over leggings. She works either way for me.
I’m pleased with the styling and quality, I know next winter she will be a wardrobe staple.

Oh My Mara!

Admittedly, I've become a little obsessed with Wool& dresses. I have 6 of them now... Two Rowena dresses, a Brooklyn wrap dress, a Clara shirt dress, a Laurel belted tunic, and now a Mara dress. That said, I'm IN LOVE with my Mara dress and wish I'd bought this one first. I didn't think much of it when I first saw it, but on a bitterly cold winter day I was scouting the #100daydresschallenge on Instagram and saw how a LOVELY lady styled it SO many different COZY ways. I contemplated purchasing for several days but ultimately decided on getting it and so glad I did. I don't buy many new clothes these days, but if I do I have three musts: 1) it must be wool or organic cotton 2) I must love it 3) I must feel good about the business I'm supporting. I plan to wear my wool& dresses until they fall apart. Thank you for being such a great brand.
