Theory 'Nikay' Cotton Blend A-Line Dress
Stylish, Flattering and Versatile
The reviews about this dress running small made me think twice about buying it. But I'm glad I did. My salesperson said it's a true Theory fit. So if you buy 2 or 4 in other brands, go 4. The fabric is stretchy, forgiving and flattering in the right places. The stripes are much bolder in person. It's really versatile and can easily be dressed up or worn more casually by changing shoes and accessories. I've received so many compliments. It's just a really comfortable and flattering dress.
This is a winner! I'm usually an 8-10, but this ran super small! Had to get the 12 :( Will look great with heels dressed up, or with flat sandals as a casual look. Could easily pair with a skinny red belt and shoes for a fun splash of color. Would be a great ladies luncheon dress, dinner out or even brunch with some dressy flip flops - thinking Tory Burch black patent thongs. It's hard to find a dress for my age group (48) that is still trendy and long enough without being old looking. Loved the forgiving cut and soft fabric. Definitely recommend!
I'm a curvy, tall girl (5'9", 135lbs, 34DD), and I always have trouble finding dresses that aren't TOO short or tent like because of my bust. This is the most flattering dress I've tried on in ages, and was happy to pay full price for it (which I rarely do). It's a perfect fit and flare that's fitted in all the right places, and not too short.
It's incredibly versatile and can be dressed up or down- I plan on wearing it in the summer with flats, and, while it's still chilly where I am now, with tights, boots and a leather jacket. I HIGHLY recommend this!
I will say, this is my first Theory purchase. For reference, while I'm normally a 6 in J.Crew, I took an 8 in this dress.
I love this dress. It was recommended to me by my personal shopper and I wasn't too excited about it until I put it on. The fit is perfection and it is very flattering.
The color and texture make it a year 'round dress, and the fabric will be perfect for our long, hot summers. It can easily be dressed up or down.
For the quality, the price can't be beat.
