Stripe-Play Shirtdress

Stripe-Play Shirtdress is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Versatile Item in My Closet This is one of the best purchases I've ever made. I normally wear an XS, but I got this in an XXS, and the fit is flatteringly loose and flowy. I'm 5'7", and this dress is a prefect not too short but not too long length, as are the sleeves. The style of this is so interesting. It's wearable and basic, but it pulls inspiration from menswear, which is one of my favorite trends. It's also borderline pajama-y, but that just adds to the uniqueness. The fabric is great quality, soft, and so comfortable. At first I was worried about it being too sheer, but it's completely opaque and doesn't expose anything that I don't want t to. I adore the versatility of it more than anything. It looks just as great with sandals as it does paired with leggings underneath and booties. It's one of those rare things that can be worn all year round, depending on the styling. I get compliments whenever I wear it, and feel so confident in it as well. I highly recommend this gorgeous closet staple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute Dress had some reviews I disagree with. It's cute, flattering and just darling. I love it. Ordered my regular size a Small and think it's flattering.. love it with a scarf, necklace or leather jacket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dress with some sizing issues First of all, I really like this dress. I wore it yesterday and got a ton of compliments. However it is VERY oversized. I normally wear a medium/large and for this I got a small and it is still roomy. I like the high/low hem but it is almost too high in the high part and so when you sit it becomes a little more revealing than you might want. Overall I like this dress though. It’s very flattering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pajama-like dress with potential I don't have a skinny tall model body, I am short and have post babies belly as well, so I love this kind of flowy oversized relaxed dress. I'm 5'1" 130+ lbs, ordered Small & Medium but both were way too large ( I just requested an exchange with XS. Hope that works...) I don't mind the viscose fabric. It's thick and heavier fabric so it'll be warm in colder seasons. I am not a big fan of big bell sleeves, though. But I'm planning to wear it with cardigans. It's definitely pajama-esque just by itself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from a little disappointed I was really excited about this dress--love a soft, comfy shirt dress with fun stripes. Unfortunately this was wayyy shorter on me than the model--I even felt a little uncomfortable wearing it over leggings. I'm 5'6, with hips and a butt, so maybe that's the difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to Snag Be careful ladies! I bought this dress because it looks really cute in person. Though I see why others may think it looks like an over-sized pajama shirt, I think you can definitely dress it up with a small scarf, and and pair of ankle boots. I will say one thing I really didn't expect was how easy it was to snag. It snagged twice on me the first time I wore the dress. So be ware of your rings or sharp edges, because once it snags, it's really not one of those dresses that you "couldn't" tell. I wish it was in made with cotton!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pajama-esque It's not a terrible dress, it's also just not that great. The dress is comfy, VERY over-sized (so definitely size down) with a decent silhouette for being so roomy, but the viscose fabric was not what I expected. It is more of a cotton/flannel feel than the typical viscose I'm used to, which ultimately gives it the large sleep shirt look (as opposed to shirtdress) I wasn't going for. I'd also note that the dress, though very roomy, was not as long on me as the model. I could almost wear it as a tunic and I'm only 5'4. I'm sure some women can pull this off, just not me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unflattering fit I really wanted to like this but it will be going back. Like some of the other reviewers I found the cut a little odd. It's not flattering at all on me. I got an XS and I'm 5'6", 130 lbs. I have fairly broad shoulders and this piece made me look very top-heavy. The sleeves came up shorter on me than on the model, threatening to be 3/4 sleeves. Also overall it was shorter in the front than I expected. Because of the way the sides are sewn angling forward toward the front, I found it created a kind of narrowing at the bottom, instead of flaring out like I expected from the photo. I loved the material though. It was a little heavier than expected. Looks good quality and feels great, but just doesn't sit right.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gramp's PJ's My immediate thought putting this on was "my boss is going to say this looks like my grandpa's pajama top". The dress is comfy, VERY over-sized (so definitely size down) with a decent silhouette for being so large. The sleeves give it a bit of shape. As the other reviewer mentioned, the viscose fabric was not what I expected. It is more of a cotton/flannel and has that cheapy feel with the largely looped fabric which with get caught and also pill very easily. I might have kept , it or purchased when it went on sale, but I can't do the fabric - yuck. Def no for me. I am also 5'7 and 110lbs. I purchased a Small. It is supposed to be oversized obviously but it just looks sloppy and not cute oversized.
