Not for apple bottom Ladies

The dress fit perfectly around the arms and top half but definitely not made for women with hips.

...

The top fits great but as other reviews state this is not for the hip friendly. I left the bottom two buttons undone with white leggings it worked out:)

Fun informal work style.

Don't like the photo fool you, this dress does not appear that wrinkly! I loved this dress, it was a little short for work and the spring weather has been a little cool in the 50, so I put black leggings underneath. Looked great with heels and I dressed it down with sneakers for the weekend. This was a fun piece if you want to play with the irregular/assymetric denim look.

Perfect transition into spring

Sorry for the mess in my photo - I'm moving! Back to the shirt dress - I love it! This was an option given to me by a RTR stylist. I wouldn't have ever chosen this myself. I decided to give this a shot since this brand usually runs small. This x-small is still loose fitting, but cute for an everyday outfit. I love the style & the fit isn't bad either. True to size for sure!

Not for curvy girls. Must wear leggings.

This was such a cute top on me, but I had to make several adjustments. I had to wear it with skinny jeans or leggings, and I had to put a tank top underneath, because I could not close all buttons over my breasts.

Fantastic menswear inspired dress

Absolutely loved this dress. It wasn't too short so I wore it to the office. It's not fitted which was comfortable but I probably could have sized down which was surprising as this brand generally runs small

Versitle Dress

I'm between a 4 and a 6 but mostly 6 (because I have a wide back) and wore the medium. The fit was great without having tightness in the back or bust. The length was long enough to wear as a dress. I didn't like how my midsection looked in the dress so I put a white denim skirt over it to create shape and let the bottom of the dress peak through. I wore it with gray suede booties.

I wish I had gotten the medium. The small fit but it was tight, especially when I sat down.

Great lightweight material

I wore this with sneakers around town in the heat for several days. It might be one of the only RTR dresses I have not gotten compliments on. I wouldn't say it is super flattering on the figure.

Side hem made this too short for work

At 5'9, the "boyfriend" (higher side hems than back & front) this would have fit more like a tunic, not a dress. The construction, material, design, etc. was great though, and I would have loved to wear! 5'7 & under girls will be very happy!

Great dress! Typical button down issues

Loved this dress but those buttons...they did not stay nice and flat. the dress wasn't even tight and it would pucker between each one just enough to make the whole day a little nerve wracking! Would not rent again, even though it was cute. In theory.

Amazing!

Obsessed with everything about this. Great mix of masculine and feminine, not to mention the fit is great. Usually short dresses make you boxy, but this looked great. Too short to wear to work for my office.

Wish I could've worn this dress. The second I sat down you could see right through the buttons — if you have any sort of bust, size up!

Flattering but runs small... wish I owned!

So happy I read the reviews ahead of time because I ordered up a size and due to my larger chest, I couldn't button without it pulling. To avoid a gap, I left opens and wore a bandeau underneath. Didn't need tights; it was longer in the back than in the front, too. The shape was great, something that's not always the case with the menswear inspired lines. I will def be renting this again.

Great dress!

Was snug across my chest, but still worked well with a few buttons undone! It was fresh looking, although it wasn't SUPER comfortable. It also is a button down men's T-shirt type material and wrinkled easily. But other than that, it was a hit!

Loved this take on a men's dress shirt. Flirty and sexy but appropriate enough for work. Warning though. Runs very small. I wear an 8, sometimes a 10 and the Large fit perfect.

Great fit and material

Loved this for work, would've work on a weekend or vacation if it had been just a little cooler out. Cool twist on a basic shirt dress, the material felt great and the fit was perfect (sized up per other reviews).

cute and comfortable.

this was a fun piece to wear, it was a little on the shorter side for me, so it could be fun for a BBQ, something casual where you're not bending over too much. I wore once with sandals and once with low booties.

Dress runs very small through the hips. I wear a 8-10 which is a medium. This was a size large and I couldn't fasten the middle

It was stylish and perfect for work ... I would purchase it in the future.

Fit was comfortable but the chest button came undone ... thankfully I noticed right away before I gave any of the men at my work noticed.

Buttoned up look for a nautical or beach setting

I loved this dress! It was very flattering the way it curved to my body, was the perfect length and had large cuffs to take it up a notch. I wore this to a dinner in the North Fork because it was preppy, nautical-ish, blue stripes remind me of the beach or Hamptons and I just really liked the fit. It could totally have been worn to an interview or a work event because of how professional it is. I would totally rent again!

Need to wear something underneath

Dress is classy. The last button came off before I even got to work. You need a slip or something to wear underneath it. Size is true to size. I wore it for work.

Too tight around my tummy!

Perhaps it's just my body type, but I felt like the dress wasn't flattering because of how it ft around my waist. It wasn't very forgiving. Really cute style though, I definitely what have worn it if I felt more comfortable in the way it fit.

Stylist Review

I love this preppy work look by Elizabeth and James! Running small with no stretch, I recommend going a size up for your back up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted throughout the hips. It works best for A-C cup sizes. You are able to wear a standard bra with this work look. At 5'8, the length hit mid-thigh on me. This menswear inspired look was fun and simple to wear. Pair it with a cute flat and a statement tote will defiantly complete your look!

Effortlessly put together

The fit was tailored but not tight. It was very comfortable. I wore it with sneakers and jeans to work and without jeans and heels out at night. The quality was great and I got lots of complete from my coworkers and fiancé. It's super versatile.
