This Under-$40 Dress Looks Good on Everyone—Here’s Why

What’s under $40, perfect for summer, and universally flattering? Our very own Who What Wear collection Embroidered Belted Bardot Dress ($35), that’s what. And, before you chalk this up to what could easily be mistaken as bias (after all, we did make it), let me extoll its virtues for a minute. Firstly, its off-the-shoulder nature leaves you with exposed collarbones, which we all know are one of a girl’s best assets. Next, the oversize short sleeves create a contrast with upper and lower arms, making them appear slimmer. And lastly, the attached belt lets you gather the dress at your waist, highlighting another major asset. To recap, the recipe for success here is:

  • exposed collarbones
  • oversize short sleeves
  • belted waist

For these reasons and more, Who What Wear girls everywhere have been making the dress their own and taking to Instagram to show it off. See the proof below, and then shop the dress, which (like our entire collection) comes in both straight and plus sizes.
