Yello there! It’s been a beautiful few days here in Boston, suited for a sunny maxi like this one. I’ve always loved long dresses as they make for quick “one and done” outfits that can often be dressed up or down. For flattering petite-friendly options, Banana Republic has been so good lately! I’m partnering with them again to share this dress that is versatile for summer travels, and can also be styled for special occasions like a wedding.
I almost didn’t try on this floral tiered maxi dress since the stock photo isn’t too exciting to me online. But upon zipping it up, it surprised me – it just feels so feminine and floaty and fit comfortably all around. The dress has adjustable shoulder straps and is short enough for me to even wear with flats, making it easy to dress down with a denim jacket and crossbody bag.
Other features I love include a chiffon-like fabric (non stretch) that is pretty wrinkle resistant (great for vacation packing), a full lining, a nursing friendly top, and a small clasp in the front to secure a modest neckline. The solid 5 star reviews online (check reviews under both Petite and Regular sizing) also echo my sentiments about the dress exceeding expectations!
A completely different style that I also tried on and would recommend is this black linen-blend dress. It’s very classic, tailored and flattering, and I particularly liked the angled pockets! Note the buttons are decorative.
Thank you to Banana Republic for partnering on this post.
