Silhouette Dress

Silhouette Dress is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect LBD This silhouette dress is the definition of the perfect classy little black dress. It is tight enough on the top to show your figure but cinches perfectly to create an hourglass. The little raised stripes add interest without limiting you to styling it a certain way. I have worn mine with anything from statement jewelry to a cute scarf also with flats or heels, it is truly universal. Oh! Did I mention that it is made of spandex so it is stretchy and comfortable while still looking polished. The name Madewell is not a faulty claim, this is one of my best made dresses that can be worn casually or dressed up. I hope you end up loving this product as much as I do!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, simple dress This is a simple black dress but can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. The material is substantial and had a great fit and structure. I am 5'1 and 120 lbs and the small fits perfectly; the length is not overwhelming on my petite frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait to wear this Bought this in blue for a late summer wedding and can't wait to wear it. It's adorable. Maaaybe a tad on the short side, but I'll wear it with opaque tights in the winter. I'm usually a size 6/8 in Madewell dresses and M was perfect. Lots of stretch to it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Dress! I got this dress in blue and wore it for a special occasion. Got so many compliments and was so comfortable. My favorite part - the dress has pockets!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic dress! Great dress! Medium weight, stretchy, comfortable fabric that kind of reminds me of neoprene. IMO, it's slightly too warm for summer days in NYC, and I think it'd be best as an early spring or fall dress, but it's still manageable in the heat I guess. I have the black one, which is great for work/professional settings. I don't necessarily like the unfinished neckline, but snip away any stray threads and it should be okay. I purchased this dress for an interview... and landed the job. Just sayin'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I adore this dress and so happy I made this purchase. It fits beautifully and gives me little bit of a hour-glass shape while still hiding my rear (I have a straight waste but curvy bum.) I also love that it is so functional- I'm able to wear it to work, an event or dress down for an evening out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress! I absolutely love this dress- I bought it in both colors! The only thing I dont llike is the the bottom and the arms have hanging threads and arent sewn which I don't feel is acceptable for a dress at this price point. It's overall a really great dress though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great basic dress I love this dress. As others have noted, it is a scuba fabric, which means a clingier fit than some other fabrics. For this reason, it runs small. I am very petite and often find that the smallest sizes are too big, but the xxs actually fit perfectly, with little room to spare. It creates a very defined waist, which I love, and looks really clean and classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Dress!! Can't say enough good things about this dress! Just purchased the black and already thinking about going back to get the blue. Such a comfortable dress that will work great year round. A perfect work to play dress and can be dressed up/down with a blazer for work and a statement necklace. Love!
