Funky but work appropriate

I really loved the asymmetric hemline and mix of a t-shirt look on top with the skirt. Very comfortable. Some parts were slightly short in the front but it worked with opaque tights. Will rent again!

Comfortable

Very nice and stylish- the top has a different texture material than the bottom- long and medium weight ... you can feel the quality- I have broad shoulders and bust and I was very comfortable. It's a little long - extended beyond my longer pea coat but I also wore flats.. Modest and stylish- wore to mass

Loved this piece

The sleeves are flattering on anyone. It is a t-shirt material up top but still very luxe. The draping is flattering for the skirt and with thick leggings or black culottes this dress/top is just super fashionable. I say dress/top since one section of the skirt is very short. I kind of mentally kept it as a shirt to not have any improper exposure. The way the waist sits and the ruching folds, is very conscious of how the female body works. It is so slimming and hiding and body flattering. Would definitely recommend. My friend and I were both obsessed with this one. Can be dressed up or down.

Versatile, great fit, fun

LOVED this dress; the hemline was not too long for a petite frame plus the belt gave a defined waist. A great combination of cool, modern, and sleek. I had intended to wear for a dinner but found myself wanting to just wear it all the time. Looking for it in other colors.

Love this "dress" - more like a tunic

Super flattering, easy to wear and fun. The drape is gorgeous. I wore it for work with leggings.

Cute, nicely cut and comfortable. Wind blew it up a bit, but wasn't too bad.

Versatile Standout

Awesomely flattering, versatile and stylish dress I seriously considered buying. The angles were eye catching and materials luxe. Looks like a tee and skirt but it's one piece and skims the body nicely. Styled with my Nike VaporMax Flyknit LXX's that sparkle with Swarovski crystals which complimented the asymmetrical black canvas for fashion forward flair but easily could've worn with booties or strappies, maxed out in jewels or chic minimalist in all black.

Architectural dress

Draping is amazing, like a piece of origami artwork. Felt strong and focused wearing this. Normally I'm a 2 but was able to wear the 0.

comfortable

looks and feels like a comfy tshirt w skirt. i thought the hemline wld would make it look more dramatic, but it looked quite tame. still very very comfortable and great for winter meetings. would recommend. was a touch long on me, but i'm short. i'm typically a 4, but this runs a bit large so if you're btwn sizes i wld go down

Fun but awkward zipper and waist band

I really liked this dress. The top is a kind of t-shirt material that makes it slightly casual and easy to wear a lot of different places. My only issue with the dress was the ribboned band across the empire waist. It was a little stiff and it was hard to zip up over the stiffness of the fabric. The band lay across the widest part of my ribcage which made it a little uncomfortable at times. I had to either pull it up or down for comfort throughout the night. It might fit differently on another person.

Couldn't wear, wouldn't zip up past my size D chest

Well constructed dress, definitely something different. I loved the way it looked, but unfortunately, the side zipper wouldn't go past my chest. Will try to size up next time.

A real winner!

Wore it four times in a week. It was perfect for a day at work. It was just as perfect for a day of errands AND for a dinner date with my husband. It is comfortable and classy with a lot of design details that make it more fun than your average black dress. I can see a wide range of women loving this dress. You can really take it in any direction with a change of accessories and shoes.

Great flattering fit

Great fit and very comfortable. I will definitely rent this dress again and I received many compliments. I did wear tights with it though because the front went a little too high for the workplace. I am considering buying in the future.

I wanted to like it but I got it for work and the inner layer was far shorter than it looks online

Edgy and cool but too short on my 5'9" frame in the front.

It just didn’t look good on me, but the fit was fine.
