Quick — you have to run out of the house in two minutes to go meet friends and forgot about your plans until just now. Photos will be taken! What do you throw on as the clock is ticking? Three, two, one . . .
For Us, the Style & Co Short-Sleeve A-Line Dress is the obvious choice. This top-rated, fan-favorite dress is genius in its simplicity, and over 350 reviewers are celebrating it non-stop. Even more of a reason to celebrate? The fact that this dress is a part of Macy’s Style & Co sale, starting at half off the original price!
Reviewers are saying this is their “favorite kind of dress for the summertime,” calling the length “just perfect.” They love that it’s lightweight, but thick enough to not need a slip underneath, and how it’s “extremely comfortable” from first try-on. One said the way the skirt flares out is “very flattering” while another said the dress as a whole just “couldn’t be cuter!”
This dress is “the epitome of simple style.” It features allover solid coloring, with a scoop neckline and short sleeves. Its A-line silhouette is roomy with a bit of stretch, the fabric not clinging to or hugging our figure. It has more of a breezy, swingy feel and look for a relaxed style that still appears completely put-together!
The hem of this dress is straight but almost creates a ruffle effect because of the way the skirt falls. It comes down right to the top of our knee, leaving room for anything from wedge sandals to knee-high boots!
It’s so easy to look good in this dress, which was created specifically for Macy’s. Even just putting it on is easy, as it’s pull-on style! No zippers, ties or hooks to deal with, which is great especially when we’re in a rush, or at the end of a long day when we’re ready to change into pajamas as soon as we step foot into our home!
This dress is currently available in six colors, several of which are on sale! At 50% off is Mid Heather Grey, which is a must-have shade for a versatile dress like this, since it’s equally as versatile of a color! This mid-tone grey will go seamlessly with black or brown, or any color of the rainbow, for that matter! It also magically looks amazing with any skin tone!
Other colors include the vibrant Lake Teal, the bold Real Red, and the sleek Deep Black and Navy. There’s also Evening Olive, a super dark green!
There are so many ways to wear this dress. If we’re in that two-minute countdown, we can just slip it on with a pair of slides or sneakers and . . . that’s it! That’s all we need for an A+ outfit. If we have a little more time, we can dress this piece up with strappy heels and maybe a belt at our natural waist to add some extra flair. For a more casual occasion, a contrasting, colorful denim jacket would be adorable!
Now that we’re prepared for any plans made on a whim, who’s ready to go out? Shopping, anyone?
