Who doesn’t love dresses? It’s not that we need dozens of dress choices hanging our closets. It’s simple, we want them. Slipping into the right dress that fits in all the right places is life-changing. It can make Us walk straighter, faster and above all, more confident.
The right dress ultimately brings back the pep in our step we never knew we lost, which is why every fashion lover will agree we need a feasible option always on hand in our closets. But how do we know what the right dress looks like? Well, that’s easy. This dress is the ultra-flattering option that had hundreds of reviewers feeling good, too.
Think of the American Living Cap-Sleeve Ruffled Dress as nothing short of magical. The dress has a surplice neckline, an even-sewn hem and cap sleeves with light padding on the shoulders. It’s such a lovely update from those ’80s trends that are always coming back.
This silhouette continues to stun in the three sensational colors its crafted in. The berry, black and coral are all swoon-worthy and rich shades that can seamlessly be mixed and matched into wardrobes year-round.
Truthfully speaking, we haven’t even gotten to the best part yet! Wondering what we love most about this dress? Well, that’s easy! It’s all about the fit! This simple silhouette made us understand that a dress can fit well in certain areas without compromising any other areas.
The ruching at the left waist features a gentle draped effect that almost plays a trick of the mind. It uses the super-smooth jersey material to suck us in, in all the right places. It’s important to note that while this may sound a bit alarming, it’s anything but. The cascading ruffled detail that’s also on the left waist hangs perfectly over our midsections. That’s right, it’s the ultimate trick of the mind.
It’s not just us who are loving this ruffled dress either because so many other reviewers do, too. Across the board, everyone seemed to be nothing but pleased with this super stylish silhouette.
One reviewer loved the rich tones the dress came available in. So often we find a dress we love but it doesn’t compliment our skin tones. Not here! All three shades are not only ultra-flattering for the body, but also for all skin tones, too!
Other reviewers were stunned over how “professional looking” this dress is, with some saying it was “elegant,” as well. That’s the true magic with this silhouette. It can easily transition into our wardrobes and be worn just about anywhere. From work to date night and everything in-between, it’s the best choice.
Looking for the error-proof way to style this silhouette? It’s all about keeping things simple. The design is so chic and classic, we don’t want to overpower it with an overwhelming amount of accessories, now do we? Absolutely not! Let’s slip into a pair of strappy sandal stiletto (preferably a nude tone) and maybe add a nude tote. Add a classic trench coat over the top, throw on a pair of sunnies and off we go!
Work this flattering dress into any wardrobe or weekday rotation and make dressing easy!
