Cheap and chic of the week

Everlane Cocoon dress—Cheap and chic of the week

As perfect a throw-it-on-and-go summertime dress as I’ve seen: just put on a couple of necklaces or an armful of bracelets and you’ve got a look going (and it’s pretty cool in the white, too.)

    And if you happen to be larger than a size 12, as over half of U.S. women are, there is this lovely similar style from Universal Standard: https://www.universalstandard.net/products/augusta-geneva-dress-black

    I had been eyeing this very dress (and a pair of goweave pants) on Everlane for a while. Knowing how a recommendation from Kim often seems to precede something selling out (and seeing that there were only a few left in my size) I decided to pull the trigger. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I love the Universal Standard Dress and wanted to find something similar in my size. Thanks.

    I like the shoes best. I wonder if they stay on your feet and are comfortable.

    Ordered! It’s going to be a crapshoot; I am not sure if the cut will be flattering or look like a sack on me, but it’s cute enough to take a chance!

    Cute! I still love my Black Crane.

    • DeDe says:

      Yes! This is very Black-Crane-y. I’m jealous that you can wear that dress; I’m so short it looks like a linen sleeping bag on me. A classy linen sleeping bag, but still.

    I was about to pull the trigger and then read “Hand wash, lay flat to dry, do not dry clean”. Falls into the easy-to-wear category but alas, not the easy-to-take-care-of category.

  8. lesa says:

    I don’t think I have a flat surface big enough to dry this on 🙂

  9. MariaO says:

    After carefully looking at the measurements, I think I can fit into a size 10, so I ordered. Fingers crossed!

  10. Kate says:

    Everlane also suggest laying their rayon t-shirts flat to dry, which I have not done and have had no ill consequences, for what it’s worth.

    Since this looks eerily familiar to the cornejo I bought on your recommendation I don’t need the black but I’m curious about he white I wonder how sheer it is??

  12. Sara says:

    Bought the Everlane dress in white. Fingers crossed!

    • Lara says:

      I just received mine in white. Fit was great, but it’s a little sheer, and you can definitely see the pockets through the dress.

      I’m thinking black tank body suit because slips freak me out. What’s your plan?

    Mine arrived this afternoon! Just tried it on and I’m pretty happy. I was afraid I was too short and curvy to pull it off – all the Everlane models are so willowy and I am so not – but I think it does look elegant. Planning to wear it at my school’s graduation (I’m a teacher, not graduating, but I do have to get up on stage) next Thursday. I’m glad to have the Kim stamp of approval!
    My one worry is that the armhole is large, but I think if I wear a black bra or a very pretty bra I’ll be fine. Looked funny when I tried it on with my nude.

    Just received my dress ( ordered it in May, the package got lost but Everlane replaced it quickly) and it’s amazingly flattering. Armholes are a little large but, like Frances, I thin ka black bra will be ok.
