Cozy and cute!

This dress is so beautiful! Big plus that it is soft and cozy too. The fit is loose so size accordingly. I dressed down with opaque tights and suede booties!

Amazing fabric!

Loved, loved, loved this Equipment dress! Wore it to work and a brunch and recieved so many compliments. The print is unique and the texture of the fabric is heavenly. I wore it as shown one day and paired it with a wide leather kimono belt the next - looked great. Only thing I would caution on is that the gaps between the buttons could be awkward (especially towards the crotch area) - I ended up wearing a camisole and opaque black tights because of the weather, but if I didn't, it could have been revealing more than I wanted!

Really pretty but short

I wore with leggings. The pattern & silk are really unique and pretty. Its light and airy and more appropriate for spring. I wore it on a warm day anyway as i live in the south.

Perfect with tights!

This dress was FABULOUS. I got so many compliments today i couldn't even count them. I paired it with opaque tights, suede heeled booties and a long black blazer. Rhe bell sleeve detail is amazing. Only negative feedback is the soave between the two bottom buttons tends to gape a little. Without tights this would be problematic. Also STATIC! I had to spray static guard throughout the day to keep it from sticking. That said, would wear again in a heartbeat!

Great item

Great dress, easy to throw on for a business casual work environment, i wore it with black tights and chunky boots and felt both pulled together and fashion forward. XL size was perfect for my size 12 body, and i generally like things a bit on the loose end, also i have broad shoulders and it fit well!

Unflattering, straight fit

Was hoping to wear this to a show in NYC but found it very unflattering, gave me no figure- cuts straight down; so depsite the florals was very unfeminine in fit.

Amazing. But, No streatch and does "cling"

Rented this for work and weekend wear. It is amazing! Fabric is a silk and has a little shine (like silk does) . It has zero streatch. I rented the XL because I have broad shoulders and I am chesty, but I could have sized down. The only tiny downfall is the fabric gets alot of static and tends to cling. But that doesnt stop my high review of this dress.

Beautiful print, slightly awkward drape

I forgot to take a pic of this one oh well. Teally beautiful silk satin fabric and gorgeous, stand-out print. Very easy to wear and lots of elements I loved - the flowy, open sleeve cuffs were beautiful if a little annoying at times, and very versatile as it was lovely worn on its own or with a cardigan over. I do really appreciate that it was a shirt dress with buttons that stopped before the skirt, avoiding that gapping/split at the hem that you get when the buttons go the whole way down. I think the very-dropped-waist seam just below the button line relates to this somehow, but I don't know how, and I didnt find it necessary or particularly attractive. I also found that thw dress caught a bit on my body at that point which may have been related to the seam, or it might haveg just been my hippy shape. In summary: outstanding print and fabric, utilitarian cut and fit.

Comfortable Yet Polished Work Dress

This dress was very flattering. Slim enough against the body but still nice and flow-y. Generous room in the shoulders and the length was perfect for me--just above the knee (I'm 5'1"). The colors were much more subtle than they appear on the site not an issue either way but may mean something to someone! I wore the dress with tights and because other reviews mentioned there was a high probability of the dress riding up, I wore a thin slip underneath with no issues. The sleeves were a little long which I could see being annoying in certain circumstances but it was not a deal breaker for me. All in all it's a great dress.

Beautiful silk, nice pattern

Fits true to size, smaller on chest like other Equipment items I've rented so size up if busty. Great for work, almost to the knee length on my 5'7" frame. Love the flutter cuffs, can be tucked under if you'd like them out of the way. Agree the buttons are gapped on the bottom, I added another safety pin near one that was already on from the previous renter :)

Arrived very staticky and that struggle continued! Wear a slip because it is thin and buttons. I styled with combat boots and tights. Super cute and comfortable for a long day of meetings.

A stripe made out of flowers

I rented the XL bc it was the only one available, a L would have fit me (10). That being said, it wasn't too big and roomy enough and comfortable to work a trade show. The fabric is pretty, lots of compliments.

Fun Dress

Wore to work and then out to dinner afterwards. Got compliments. I don't normally wear busy prints, but the small size of this print worked for my petite frame. Liked the colors and the little ruffle at the hem. Wore with booties for an slightly edgy look.

Nice fabric, got compliments even though the fit seems weird

It had a weird low waist/hip band that I felt sat in an unflattering place. The wrist buttons were uncomfortably tight on me so I just wore them unbuttoned. I wore it with leggings to work. The fabric is light and comfortable. Even though I didn't think it was flattering, I got several compliments from people who have no reason to compliment me.

Outside of my style comfort zone, in a good way!

Long enough to wear to the office. Wore on a 95 degree day in nyc and the dress was light and breathable despite being long sleeve. Loved the loose fit but still didn't look boxy. Wore Spanx shorts underneath just because the bottom button would separate when I was sitting and I wanted everything covered.

I felt so good in this dress!

The fabric is wonderfully soft, and it has a beautiful flow and swing to it. Perfect for someone like me who's a little thick through the middle.

Casual but feminine and chic. Very much a looser style, but paired with heels, a perfect work dress.

The sleeves made this hard to wear, too bad!

I returned without wearing although I would have liked to love everything about this dress. Great pattern in the fabric, great colors. I like the slight hi-lo hem also. The sleeves were just too long and couldn't really be pushed up. The flounce detail at the cuff is adorable but if I left it hang it covered my hands and made the look really sloppy. If you have longer arms, this would be awesome!

This was so adorable! I wore it to work and on a date and got so many compliments! Love!!

The dress ran a little big but I assume it's not supposed to be snug. I had to belt it to show my shape more but it was so adorable! I love it and will be renting again!!

Cute easy dress

Super easy to wear, didn't need a lot of accessories. Loved the fabric - it was light but not sheer, and the lining was sooo silky and soft. This would have been 5 stars but there is a big gap in the buttons right over the crotch that would gape and fully expose my underwear when seated... Seemed likw it was missing a button but there was no button hole either. I wound up using double sided tape to keep it closed. I am usually a 12 or 14 but opted for the xl as I usually need the bigger size to accommodate my broader shoulders. The xl fit my shoulders -smaller size would not have- but the rest of the dress was a bit loose.

Great quality and pattern

Perfect Equipment shirt dress. I always find Equipment dresses to be small so I sized up to the XL and it fit great. The ruffled end of the sleeves are a little long but otherwise this dress is impeccable!

Silk!

I was going to write that this was almost perfect except for an issue with the fit. There was a narrow band of weirdly tight fabric around the hips that made the whole dress twist up funny when I sat down or stood up. Then I took the dress off at the end of the day and realized some jerk had put a safety pin in between two buttons to pull it extra tight there and never took it out. So the fit actually was perfect, and I'm annoyed that I didn't get to enjoy the dress the way it was meant to be worn. Don't put safety pins on things, people! Use dress tape, if you must, and remove it before you return. And RTR, please do better with inspections. So the dress - the buttons are far apart, and the fit is not overly generous, so there is a good chance you will have gaps where you have curves. On a less-curvy person, this falls beautifully. It is short, but conservative enough otherwise that I found it work-appropriate. The fabric is a fairly heavy silk that drapes nicely. The floral reminds me a bit of this chair my grandma had in the "Florida room" at her place in Boca, but in a good way! It's funky and pretty. Great dress overall. I may rent it again to wear without the safety pins.

super cute, but tight if you have thick thighs

This dress is super cute! I got so many compliments on it. My only negative on the dress is that it's tight on the hips. A large would have probably fit better i guess (although I'm a size 8 in all my clothes).

Stylist Review

I loved this dress!! It was so comfortable and it's made of the signature Equipment fabric, which is super soft and high quality. I liked that the dress is an appropriate length for work and it's a mixture of all kinds of colors, so it basically works for any time of year. The buttons did pull a little when I moved my arms a lot, but the Medium was definitely the right size for me. I would probably just wear a cami underneath to avoid any embarrassing moments.

Gorgeous work dress

Love love love the cut and details of this dress. It was perfect for work but could easily have transitioned to a nighttime look with different accessories. I wore this at 16 weeks pregnant and sizing up one size made the fit perfect. Love the pattern and it looked great belted as well! Will be renting this one again no doubt.

Fun!

I liked this dress a lot. I wish there had been a M - but I wanted it so went with the L. It was a bit big but still worked. I loved the silky fabric and with the dark colors wearing floral in the winter worked. Since it is silk it did get bunched up on my leggings and I had to keep pulling it down - but small price to pay. Great dress and I will definitely be trying out over Equipment clothing on RTR.

loved everything about this dress

the length is modest. the flower print is gorgeous. it's a slippery silk, but did not look shiny. the dress's cuffs are purposely cut long; you cannot really roll them back. i liked that effect; they always poked out from my sweater and kind of swing around. i did not find them cumbersome when i was writing or typing or eating. it is an elegant detail. i wore it to work, and it was perfect: dark tights and black boots with a black sweater. think great desk to dinner outfit!

Butter on my skin!

Holy moly I have never felt a nicer fabric, amen to silk! There is a slight cling factor and gap issue like others have stated but nothing that should keep you from enjoying the garment. I placed a small safety pin to eliminate any potential gap issues and wore a nude slip for my own comfort. One complaint would be sleeve length; the cuff falls perfectly to the wrist however the extra sort of flare totally enveloped my hand. I found this a little overwhelming and impractical; major concern when eating or working near anything that could damage the sleeve.
