Today we are looking at a Hidden Gem of Amazon. It’s been way too long since I have posted one of these, the last one I did was last fall looking at the Stripes and Floral Print 3/4 Length Sleeve Tee. But I found this dress recently and I thought it would make a great staple piece to anyone’s wardrobe. It can easily be worn during any season with the right pieces to add to it. We are looking at the Daily Ritual Plus Size Jersey Short-Sleeve Scoop Neck T-Shirt Dress.
I ordered this dress a little over a month ago, and it was still plenty warm here at the time. But then a week after I got it we had a massive drop in temperature. I kept holding off on doing this post thinking I would do it in the spring, but then I thought this is actually something that I would wear in every season. I just would wear it very different in each of the seasons. So I thought I would do something different this time. In addition to talking about the fit and quality of the dress I will also be sharing how I would wear it and link to some items that I would pair it with.
For sizing reference, I typically wear a size 20W or 2X at most plus size stores like Lane Bryant and Torrid. My measurements are Bust: 49″ Waist: 43″ Hips: 54″ And I wear a 40DDD bra.
This dress sells for $18.00, and I am wearing it in a size 3X. It is available in sizes 1X to 7X. There are five color options, the color I have is called Cypress Green. I personally consider it to be olive-green or army green, whichever you want to call it. The other color options are black, navy, deep red and light heather grey.
The fabric is a jersey t-shirt fabric, but not the super thing kind. It is thick enough you are not going to see through it. The weight is wearable on its own anytime from late spring to early fall. And between the fabric thickness and the seeming, it does feel like a nice quality. The fit is perfect, and I thought the size chart was accurate.
This is an Amazon owned brand, so if anything is wrong it should be easily returnable. And of course it is available with free prime shipping. This particular Amazon clothing brand focuses on simple and chic basics. Things that are staples in most wardrobes in classic colors.
So I wanted to give you some ideas on how I would style this dress for each season. I am going to go one season at a time. And I tried to stay as much as possible to items you can buy on Amazon, but that wasn’t possible for everything.
Let’s start with summer because I feel that is this is the time of year most people would be interested in this dress, and I would go mostly simple with the accessories for it.
This would look fantastic paired with some tan gladiator sandals like these Fergalicious Women’s Zaille Gladiator Sandal.
For accessories I think this dress is calling for some gold tone jewelry. I would go with a long chain pendant necklace like this Kate Spade New York Women’s Gold Standard Pendant Necklace.
And I would add some matching earrings for good measure. In the case of what I have shared it would be these Kate Spade New York Women’s Gold Standard Statement Studs.
Moving into the fall I can see introducing some richer tones to warm your look up. The temperature can vary a lot in the fall depending on how early or late it is in the season, and of course where you live. So while I am not linking them here, I would also suggest you could easily add some tights to this look to add some more warmth.
My fall shoe of choice to pair with dress is this J. Adams Jones Combat Bootie. I actually own these boots, you may recently seen them in my Instagram feed. They are perfect for fall.
Don’t forget your jacket in the fall. This Suedette Biker Jacket from Simply Be will no doubt look stunning with this dress, and quite a few other outfits for that matter.
If you are always chilly or just the type that never feels an outfit is complete without accessories, then you may want to add a scarf to your fall look. I really like this Ted and Jack Fall Foliage Pattern Silk Feel Scarf for this particular look.
Now if you are like me, in the winter I am always freezing. There is nothing I can do to get warm enough, and I like to get cozy warm clothing as much as possible. So I wanted to share a way to really make this the most warm and toasty as possible.
To make this dress wearable in the winter I would start by adding some leggings. I really like the idea of these Torrid Faux Leather Leggings for a winter look with this dress.
My shoe of choice for this winter look would be these G by GUESS Allio Boots. The look so cozy.
To keep you extra warm and toasty I would try this Fur Gilet from Simply Be. I’m pretty sure this is just an open front vest.
And finally I would top off my winter look with this La Carrie Faux Fur Headband with Stretch. I don’t do well with a lot of hats, but I love this sort of headband for the winter and it really does keep you warm.
And finally when it warms back up for spring, I think a fun monotone look would be a lot of fun.
For spring, the shoes I think would be perfect are these SeaVees Women’s Monterey Varsity Sneaker in Burnt Olive. The color is almost a perfect match.
For my hair, this Indo Batik headband from Silly Yogi seems perfect.
And finally, to finish this look off, and to keep the spring chill away, I would add this Oversized Sweaters Duster.
So tell me in the comments what you think. Do you like my outfit suggestions? How would you wear this dress?
