As a shopping editor, I’m a tough sell when it comes to dresses. The piece has to tick all my boxes: flattering, well-made, and versatile. That’s why I got so excited when we released the POPSUGAR collection at Kohl’s Ruffle Smocked Midi Dress ($48, originally $64) — it’s everything I could ever want in one design. I ordered it right away and was so pleased with it in person.
The silky-smooth fabric truly never wrinkles; it’s one of those hassle-free dresses you can pack for traveling. It’s also incredibly flattering. It cinches my waist and lays loosely over my hips. I am wearing a size large in this dress, but my friends of all shapes and sizes have bought it and look amazing. It also comes in extended sizing, so it is truly a piece any woman could incorporate into her wardrobe.
There are so many ways to make this piece work for the office, date night, and even weekend errands.
The smocked top and ruffle sleeves are very on-trend right now, so this dress seamlessly works with my existing wardrobe. I have styled it with a suede moto jacket and booties for work, but I have also worn it with white sneakers and a jean jacket over the weekend. No joke, I have only owned this dress for a month and I have worn it at least ten times. There are so many ways to make this piece work for the office, date night, and even weekend errands.
I can sincerely tell you that this dress has pleased many women I know. Give it a try for yourself! With the holiday season approaching, we could all use a comfy dress like this.
