Zip-Front Dress in Buffalo Sketch

Zip-Front Dress in Buffalo Sketch is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and stylish Very cute. I probably could have sized down, but being that this is meant to be a little loose and flowy and I wanted to ensure that it would be that way over my hips, I got a large. I haven't worn it yet, but I loved the fit and am looking forward to wearing with leggings and a leather jacket in the winter and gladiator sandals in the summer. It is a bit thin, but can easily be layered for warmth and modesty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy supreme This is my new favorite dress to pull on when I want to look like I tried, but feel like I'm still in my jammies. Looks great with tights and boots for the I-tried-but-I'm-secretly-super-comfortable look, and I'm thinking about pairing it over slim pants in spring. I didn't think I'd like the zip front, but it keeps the buffalo print from looking like I stole my boyfriends shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile, I love it! I bought this dress last weekend and want to wear it all the time. Because it is chilly where I am, I wear it with fleece-lined tights and a sweater.The outfit is so chic! It's comfortable and the quality is great. I love the neckline, it is very flattering. I bought a small. For reference, I am 5'7, 140 lbs. Fit is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Layerinng Dress Comfortable and stylish dress that is perfect for fall to winter transition. Can be worn easily with or without tights and jacket. I have worn with ankle, calf and knee boots. Dress runs slightly large so if you want a more fitted look - you could size down but I stayed true to size and didn't mind the slightly extra room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love this dress I saw an actress wear this dress on tv and loved it. Instinctively, I thought it was madewell and found it online. Other reviews noted it ran large, so I got a S. Typically I wear a S in maxi dresses and M in short length dresses. I decided to get a S. yes I have to be a bit careful raising my arms/bending down to pick up my kids, but I think a M would have been too huge and boxy. It's super thin - thinner that I expected. But it will be great to wear year round if I layer in winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable and flattering I just received this in the mail today. It is adorable, flattering, and loose fitting. I am thrilled with it. It is a bit see through--which isn't a deal breaker, it's just good to know--so dress accordingly underneath. Bc its loose fitting, it will be easy to wear a slip/long tank/leggings under it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's stylish, but... Seeing the dress on the model, it looks real cute and stylish. Now, I am 5'7" and 120 lbs. so I bought a small. It fits well except the fact that it makes me look pregnant because of its boxy style. I avoid wearing oversized tshirts, sweaters, etc. because I should I say this...pretty well-endowed in the bust area. I will have to wear it with a skinny belt around my waist to show my figure a bit. But layered with a leather jacket and some tight fitting jeans or pants and ankle boots = super cute. The material is pretty thin so I can see how some would worry about it tearing easily...just be careful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty print but oversize This dress runs large making it a bit baggy. I usually wear a XXS/XS and even the smallest size 00 in this dress is a bit big on me. I do like the kimono shape of the dress however even though the zipper is to be worn on the front I do prefer it on the back. This dress will allow it to be worn both ways. It is a bit too long on me also but I tried it on with a belt and it works also. Overall it is a versatile dress that can be worn different ways and the buffalo sketch print is bold and pretty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Casual & Effortless Dress I normally wear a size XS in all Madewell clothes, but I went down a size (XXS) and was very happy that I did. It does run big, but it didn't look huge on me which is great. It fits more like a shift dress which makes it look effortless. I am 5'3 and the bottom of the dress hits me a couple inches above the knee. I do not particularly like the zipper in the front, so I wear it in the back instead. This lightweight dress pairs well with basic flats or ankle boots. Definitely something that could be part of your everyday wardrobe or you could even wear it to work. The dress isn't lined but the quality is nice and isn't see-through.
