You know those chic linen-blend dresses all the fashion influencers wear for upwards of $200? Yeah, I’m not spending all that on an item I’ll be adventuring, sweating, and partying in all spring long. I want a cute piece that’s just as stylish, but for a fraction of the cost. That’s why I freaked out when I saw this Old Navy Waist-Defined Puff-Sleeve Gingham Mini Wrap Dress ($40) — it totally looks like a high-end piece, and the linen-rayon material blend feels really expensive. Obviously, I bought the new arrival and wore it that very same week.
What I Like About This Old Navy Midi Dress
The construction and quality of this dress is right on par with my investment pieces. Like I mentioned, the linen-rayon material blend looks quite nice, and the fit is flattering — I love a wrap dress, because you can get an adjustable fit. The puff sleeves have just the right amount of volume, and I always appreciate a dress I can wear with my favorite white sneakers. I’m also impressed that this piece didn’t wrinkle all day long, as is usually common with this type of fabric. It comes in sizes XS-4X; I’m wearing a large, which is true to size and what I would typically wear.
What Occasions Is This Old Navy Midi Dress Good For?
I’m wearing this dress with sneakers for a fun Saturday lunch and drinks at a brewery, but you can also style this dress formally with white heeled sandals. It would be perfect for a nice dinner, wine tasting, or party. That’s one of the great things about this dress: it’s quite versatile. I love how it looks with a denim jacket.
Would You Recommend This Old Navy Midi Dress?
Not only would I recommend it, I’ve already convinced my friend to buy it. The cut, quality, and style are ideal for sunny spring and summer days. For just $40, I will probably buy it in another color, since I wear it so often.
