    This dress is a great, simple-yet-elegant shape that will be a perfect for wearing to work this summer. I can pair it with a jacket for the office, a sweater for business casual, or wear on its own for daytime occasions. I will be mixing and matching this with the Summer Jersey blazer.

      Almost-perfect, but armholes too-shallow

        This dress is amazing, except for one flaw: the arm holes are too snug... The bottom comes cuts right into the arm pit. Boden is inconsistent in getting the sleeveless arm holes right (some garments, yes, some no)... I'm keeping this dress because it is otherwise so perfect, and will see if my dry cleaner can do an alteration, but Boden - Please please quality-check all armholes on all your sleeveless dresses and tops and see if you can give us a half inch of room here, give or take! (the "pretty smocked tank top" you just sent me is perfect, e.g.).

          I have this dress in Pearl & Black, and it is perfect. I read that some women did not like the contrast pockets in Pearl, but that's the interesting part about the dress. Otherwise, it would be just any ordinary colorblock dress. I have had so many compliments on this dress because it is unique. It's stylish, but classic. It will remain a staple in my closet from season to season. Endless ways to accessorize - statement necklace or scarf, cardigan or blazer, tights or none. Fantastic dress with fantastic fit. Form fitting, yet very forgiving material, which makes me look amazingly great, even when my figure is not!

          Best Uses

            I like the style of this dress and it's comfort but the arm holes on all of the Boden dresses I own are too short. I wish they were a little longer for more comfort.

                  Wow. This is my first boden dress and it is the best thing I've bought in a while. it is perfectly and incredibly flattering. Considering buying the other two colors. The navy, though, is perfect. Nice work, boden!

                    I love the gorgeous material and design of this dress. The fabric truly is lovely. I think this dress would be perfect for pear shapes. Sadly, the skirt was a bit too full for me (i'm inverted triangle shape with shoulders broader than hips) and didn't suit me. Boden please make this in a sheath!

                      I am obsessed with Boden dresses and judging by my past order history it seems that I buy at least 20 from Boden every year! This one is a great dress. I have worn it to work with a little black cardi and I have also worn it out to a casual dinner with friends. At 5'10" and curvy the 12L (US) was a perfect, flattering fit.

                          Great dress for work. Runs a little large -- I wear a 16 or 18 in most brands, and the 16 is a little roomy on me. It's a heavy knit, perfect for this cold spring. Length is perfect, right at the knee on me (I'm 5 foot 8).
