We all want a cute dress that lets us breathe and move easier, so we are excited about the Carly - a swing dress that flatters the best parts of a feminine physique while being flowy and breezy everywhere else. The Carly comes in a wide array of fabrics, prints, and washes and has some amazing features such as a patch pocket, a flattering high-low hemline, and cool open sleeves.
If you don’t already own a swing dress, we guarantee that you soon will! We all want a cute dress that lets us breathe and move easier. One that is chic, comfy and as versatile as your taste. Which is why we are excited about the Carly - a swing dress that flatters the best parts of the feminine physique while being flowy and breezy everywhere else.
Today’s modern swing dress is a flowy, comfy dress that still has an A-line shape. But rather than hugging your waist, the “A” shape hugs closer to your chest, with the fabric belling out from there. Because of the higher position of the “waist,” the swing dress has lots of movement potential--it “swings” when you walk! And there’s nothing more beautiful and feminine than a dress that swings and flows about you as you walk, dance, and just lounge.
Our Carly swing dress isn’t JUST a modern swing dress though. It’s so much more than that. We’ve added a few unique and simple features that makes the Carly a keeper on its own. One such feature is the patch pocket on the chest, which makes the Carly the perfect T-shirt dress! And who doesn’t also want a T-shirt dress with pocket hanging in your closet? No hands? That’s what we thought. Besides also being a T-shirt dress and swing dress in one, the Carly comes in a wide array of colors and fabrics that are soft, comfortable and stretchy in all the right places and in all the right ways. So not only will you want to wear this comfy dress on a night out on the town, you just might also want to wear it all day long. And then sleep in it. And then wear it the next day, because you have two of them in different prints and colors and you can totally get away with that.
Oh yeah, did we mention that the Carly comes in more than just one option and sizing? We’ve made the Carly in a whole bunch of our favorite prints and washes to make sure that it will not only work as a date night dress but also as a beach cover, a church option and even a “I work and need something new for my boring office wardrobe” option. And we’ll show you just how you can style it for each and every event imaginable out there in just a second, but we’re not done tooting our horn on this stunner.
Unlike other swing dresses we’ve also added a flattering high-low hemline and cool open sleeves. The subtle high-low hemline gives the Carly an extra bit of oomph and va-va-voom. In fact, it makes this comfy dress more of a stunner than we could even have hoped for. The high-low hem turns what might have been a girlish look into a mature and classy piece of clothing that you can dress up for any occasion but also run to the grocery store or soccer games looking flawlessly beautiful even if you just rolled out of bed. Girl, you’re gonna look put together no matter what you put on with this dream of a dress.
Finally, one of the other great things about the Carly swing dress is that it is modest and chic. Unlike some swing dress that fall short of your knees, we’ve made the Carly hem so that it hits right on your knee cap so you won’t feel like your Grandma Cordelia, but you also won’t feel like you left half your dress at home. Because of the high-low hem, open sleeves and flow of the entire dress, you won’t lose your feminine shape and this dress will make you stand out even in the largest summer crowd! We made sure that this piece would work with every shape, size and fit out there.
At LuLaRoe, we know what it’s like to not always feel comfortable in your skin or clothes that just don’t seem to be made right for everyone. This is why we make sure that all of our pieces can work no matter your age, weight or shape. As women, we come in all varieties and we all have a desire to feel beautiful. With the Carly swing dress, we’ve made sure that it’s tried-and-true and that when you slip into it you will feel it hug your body in the right places and flow away in the right places.
Ok, ok, I think we’ve boasted long enough. So now, how to style and what to wear with your new favorite dress. Anything. Ok maybe not just anything, but just about everything.
For a more casual look, you can pair your high-low T dress with sandals and a wide brimmed hat. If you’re going to the beach, just make sure your swimsuit is on underneath! To go really simple in the spring or summer, just put on a pair of espadrilles or sandals and then a fun bib necklace, or a long, very long, pendant necklace, throw your hair in a half up bun and you’re good to go! This look will transition seamlessly from day to night.
During the fall, a pair of leggings or tights plus ankle booties and a blanket scarf are perfect to wear with this comfortable dress. Or for a different look, you can wear a long cargo vest with it and then slip into a pair of knee-high boots.
Another great option for wearing the Carly dress in the fall is to pair it with a long cardigan, one that the hemline falls below your knees and then with a pair of ankle or knee-high boots. Scarves are a great accessory with the Carly as are wide-brimmed hats. And those you can wear with it spring, summer or fall! One of our favorite casual go-to looks in this comfortable dress is to wear it with a pair of your favorite slip on sneakers or Chuck Taylors, some big sunglasses and a simple watch. With this look, you’re ready to go for a full day of shopping or running errands, or even that road trip you’ve been planning! Yes the dress is THAT amazing and comfy.
To dress up, we have tons of more options! Again, you can pair the dress with some tights--go sparkly!--ankle booties and a wide-brimmed hat, but add in a fancy necklace that falls just below the neckline of the dress and a pair of bangle and dangle earrings. For a dressier, summer look, wear a pair of gold sandals, and a long pendant necklace that falls just above your belly button. Paired with an accent clutch and your favorite sunglasses and you’re going to look perfect for a night out with the girls!
Date nights in the swing dress are also a breeze! You can easily wear a jean jacket or long cardigan with it and then accessorize with a pendant necklace and pendant earrings. Remember to get something on your wrist too! Like a watch or a couple bracelets to really help complete the outfit. If you’re going out we suggest a clutch or fancier purse. For a more casual look, a cross-body bag goes perfectly well.
If you need an even dressier look than date-night appropriate, switch out the sandals or ankle booties for a pair of wedges or heels. Keep the scarf for a different day and switch it out for a layered necklace. Hair up in a bun or down in tresses will be a perfect final touch. Remember that if you’re looking for a dressier look, jewelry is key. Wear more gold and silver pieces that sparkle. If you want something more casual, then bust out the colored pieces or simple leather bands or go naked on those wrists. And also remember that a scarf is a perfect thing to switch out the jewelry for to get a more casual look.
Also be sure to pick your footwear wisely. Heels and wedges and sandals are great for dressing up the Carly. On the other hand, knee-high boots, ankle booties and sneakers are great to give it a more all-day look.
