I absolutely adore this dress. I waited to do the challenge until this one was in stock in Ocean Teal because I knew Summer was the one for me, and I knew I needed a color, not a true neutral, because I would get very bored of a neutral. I was completely right that this is the one for me.
Summer can be worn so many ways. You can wear it v-neck or crew neck. You can do the belt or not. So you have four different looks automatically built in. It helped me not get so bored of it. It is not a true midi on me at all; it hits just above my knee. (It's a good length, but actually a little longer than I'd like, so I may have it shortened about two inches.) It's a nice lightweight dress, and I wore it in 85* Florida fall days just fine, but it also layers well with leggings and sweaters for 35* Florida winter nights. I've slept in it many times because I needed to wear something else that day, and despite that it's held up incredibly well. It honestly looks brand new even still. I wear a crossbody purse whenever I go anywhere and I also of course wear a seat belt whenever I'm in the car, and there's no pilling on the chest. I also wear aluminum antiperspirant and there is zero discoloration or fabric issues. The color is not a true teal; it's almost more of a muted peacock blue. That was disappointing for me, but it does go with pretty much everything, including actual teal. I am hoping to get an actual teal dress as my reward dress, and plan to dye this one purple, but I might wait in case they bring this one back in other colors! PLEASE PLEASE, WOOL&, MAKE SUMMER IN PURPLE, ACTUAL TEAL, PINE, OR A STRIPE! I would looooove this in a navy and purple skinny stripe. Yeah, I would actually get this exact dress in another color for my reward because I like it that much!
Anyway, my measurements are 36" bust x 31" waist x 41" hips and I got an XS. That's totally absurd to me because I haven't been an XS in anything since I was like 8 years old, but it is what it is. If you are larger on top you might need to go up, but I'm part of the IBTC. Haha! A lot of the w& dresses are much too swingy for me, but Summer is a nice, flattering A-line.
I'm 92 days into my 100-day challenge in a black Summer Midi, and I love love love this dress. If it comes back in 2022, I'll buy it in any colors I can. It's soft, comfortable, hangs close to the body but isn't clingy. And I love that you can reverse the neckline and wear it with or without the belt. Ultimately, it's four looks in one dress. I've worn this dressed up with a bright scarf and no belt, and I've worn it belted with sneakers for walks, hikes, and errand running. It's great with leggings and a wrap in the cooler weather. Because I like a shorter dress, I had it hemmed to knee length, but the midi length is great for those who prefer more coverage. Wool& knocked it out of the park on this one. It strikes the perfect balance between the looser swing styles and the fit-and-flare of dresses like Brooklyn with defined waists. More, please!
I adore this dress, it is so understated but lovely. It is flattering and casual while still being dressy. I bought mine for a somber occasion, my grandfather's funeral, because it was black and in stock, but I wear it all of the time now, it is connected to those memories and I once carried my eulogy folded securely in a generous pocket. I love wearing it by itself with a string of pearls in warm weather and layered over a long sleeve tshirt in cooler weather. I habe 3 children and these are the best pockets in any dress I've ever owned - full stop: I can carry snacks for 5 people in there. I hope dearly that it someday returns and I will buy another one to fill the pockets with memories.
This dress is magical. Dressy with not a single accessory but sooo comfortable. I wear it without the belt which looks much better on me. The thin fabric is soft and cool. I'm devastated that there aren't more colors available.
Thanks for your feedback, we're so glad you love this dress! We are planning to reorder for next summer so be sure to check back again on this style!
This is my first Wool& dress. I love that the neckline is reversible, very comfortable great dress. The only thing was I should have ordered a Small not Medium. I didn't return because I needed the extra length, I'm on the taller side and I really like dresses to be at my knee or lower. There is only two dress that would fit that requirement for me, kinda sad, but something I'm very use to. The other thing, is I would like it better if it was pink! All in all I will be getting a lot more from wool&. As I pair down my wardrobe to get quality and versatile clothing.
