+ up your everyday

This dress is so cute! It's a thin, light silk-light material with flattering alterations. I dressed it down a bit, but this would look like a slightly more interesting shift dress with heels if you wanted to get fancier. Perfect for a casual date, office meeting, everyday.

Perfect, easy fit. Seriously considering buying it

This is such a simple dress, but it's comfortable, flattering, and can be dressed up or down for various occasions. I'm keeping this one for a while, and if it weren't so expensive, I'd already own it! For silk, it stays relatively unwrinkled, and fits true to size for Equipment.

RTR STYLIST REVIEW

This was a fun and easy every day dress. As on all Equipment dresses, the fabric for this piece was absolutely beautiful and felt wonderful against the skin. The ruffles for the skirt were absolutely adorable and I wore this twice while I had it at home as my Unlimited item and plan to rent this again in the near future!

Fun print

I loved the print on the dress, however it was a bit too short for my liking. I wore tights and booties, but don't think I would rent again as I had to constantly keep my hands by my side to make sure the dress stayed down.

awesome casual/work dress!

i'm typically a 2/4 but equipment runs large so an XS was perfect. i have broad shoulders and even the XS fit my shoulders well, plenty of room at waist, hits few inches above the knee. works well w tights for colder weather. loved the double layer skirt, gives it more volume, extremely comfortable. highly highly recommend, can easily be dressed down or worn to work then happy hr.

Cute everyday dress

I was surprised that the dress was silk, but luckily it did not wrinkle easily. It can be dressed up with nice boots or dressed down with sneakers. I loved the pattern, I will rent this again!

Kinda cute, but not the most flattering

This dress might be best on someone who is pear shaped. It's very roomy at the bottom, and a bit smaller on the top. Overall though it's not particularly flattering and the material and print is just okay in person. Not as cute as I expected it to be.

The dress was super flattering! Not tight but not too loose either. Wore it to work and then for date night. Could easily dress down.

Soft and Cute.

Loved the fun pattern and the soft fabric. The sleeves were oddly short. Not sure if it was designed this way or they shrunk when dry cleaned.

Stylist Review!

Super comfortable and lightweight! I felt like I was in pajamas, but it was an extremely cute dress! Would wear this to work or out with friends. I love the ruffles on the bottom and that it is a button up dress. This fits true to size. We would recommend sizing down for your backup size. I would pair this with black heels and a cute blazer. Definitely one of the most comfortable dresses I have worn!

Comfy and cute

Loved this dress - same great silky material and relaxed fit as equipment shirts. Didn't realize the sleeves were 3/4 length but they looked fine. The arms were a bit tighter than size s equipment shirts, FYI. Wore this to work with tights and boots. It's a bit short which worked perfectly for me since I'm only 5' 3"

Easy to throw on for day or night

I got this item as part of unlimited and found it to be very versatile. It runs a little large but I still wore it with tights and booties. the print lends itself for day or night.

The fit and fabric is beautiful - and the dress is not too short, long enough to wear to work! True to equipment shirt sizing. Will definitely rent again.

Another great transitional piece!

It's been a warm winter here in Texas. This was a great dress to wear on a warmer winter days. The material was light enough to wear in 80 degree weather. I wore this a few times; once to happy hour, once to a film screening and again to a day event. I love Equipment clothing. You can never go wrong with their fit! I paired it with black booties each time, but you could always wear it wth Chucks or even heels.

I loved this dress and it was perfect for work. Versatile and cute, plus super soft. And the buttons didn't pull around the bust which is always a plus!

Flouncy

Love this dress. It's a soft silk that feels great on. Flowy and flouncy. Wear with sneakers to dress down, booties for a little more flair, sandals for even dressier. Totally versatile and fun to wear.

Perfect fit with a little flow.

This dress really is perfectly tailored. It has potential to be boxy, but the tacks by the waist pull it in just enough without it hugging around the waist too much. At my age, I can get away with a short skirt OR a fitted style, but not both. This dress was sexy and classy at the same time. Well suited for a creative casual work environment. I would also rent it again for date night.

Versatile

I feel like this can be worn in many different ways. The top portion is sheer and the skirted part is not (because it is double layered). I wore mine with opaque leggings and clunky black shoes. The pattern is kind of on the snow flake side rather than star side in my opinion but it still feels like winter in PA so I was cool with it. Don't think I would wear it as a Spring dress. It is short but because it is so loose it's appropriate for work. It is super super lightweight do not tuck it into your leggings when you pull them up and show your behind to the world like I did omg. If I ordered again I would order one size up so I could belt it without it being too too short.

silk comfortable material but awkward fit

This was really nice material as expected from this brand. I ordered a small because that is what I usually wear and this sometimes run large, but it was awkward. It was fine around my waist, but the sleeves were at an awkward length and the length of the dress was pretty short. I wasn't comfortable to lift my arms as it fit small around the bust. I made it work, but wouldn't rent it again.

Cute everyday dress

I liked the dress and it was suitable for a lot of situations (wore to work, dinner, baby shower). It wasn't really a show-stopper or something people comment on, but it is a good basic piece. I particularly liked the skirt part because it is two tiers and adds a little feminine touch without being too much. Fabric was also soft and quality.

A fun easy dress, where I wasn't going to be the center of attention!

It fit well. I usually wear an 8 or 10. And the medium fit well. My family is rather conservative and give me a hard time with shorter, low fit dresses. This was perfect tho. Because it was neither. I also was attending a family dinner honoring my brother & his fiancé, so the dress was simple enough to look good, fit in & allow me to enjoy the food & wine, and not be the center of attention.

Loved this dress, bought this dress!

This dress is so versatile- I wore it with a cardigan, with a sweater over it, can be plain or with tights. The fabric doesn't show wrinkles easily, another bonus. The buttons worked well with my larger bust. And of course, the print is beautiful.

Great spring/summer dress!

This dress was great! Super lightweight, great for transitional dressing. It does have a ruffled skirt, which I couldn't tell from the photo, but I still really liked it. Would wear again!
