A versatile and affordable FatFace dress is racking up reviews, and it’s now been reduced in the sale.
With summer in its final few months, some retailers are helping shoppers save on new wardrobe additions by launching sales.
Fat Face’s sale sees discounts of up to 50 percent on womenswear, menswear and kids’ clothing, and it’s not just summer pieces, as some versatile transitional dresses are included too.
It’s a good time to pick up a bargain, as the mid-range brand has plenty of timeless items.
Although the sale is not across the entire site, it features over a thousand items, including the Vivvie Linen Midi Dress, which is slashed from £85 to £52.
Buy: Vivvie Linen Midi Dress (£52)
The dress is versatile with a midi-length, puff sleeves and v-neck, and comes in a choice of navy which could be styled to wear transitionally throughout the seasons, or bright green which is ideal for spring and summer.
Wrap designs are renowned for being flattering and suiting most shapes, which could explain why the reviews mention how ‘slimming’ the dress is.
Soft and lightweight linen helps add comfort and breathability to the piece, so it can be worn in warm temperatures.
A standout feature that shoppers are loving about the dress is the built-in pockets, however some reviews commented that they found the wrap top design had some gaping when worn.
Reviews are racking up on the FatFace website, with some shoppers calling the dress ‘really smart and good quality’.
BelleB said: ”Loving wearing this dress. I got the short length which is just right as I’m 5ft 3, it comes to bottom of my calves. The v wrap is flattering and I’m busty but find it fits well. I do have to adjust it slightly . The style is slimming, I’m curvy but the waist is quite high which flatters my tummy area as I don’t usually suit an elastic waist. I think I will also be able to wear it in autumn with a fitted top underneath, tights and boots. Recommend.”
Zoe Z commented: ”This is my go-to summer dress this year. It looks really smart and it’s good quality linen, so it can be dressed up with gold jewellery to look smart/ casual. I always get compliments when I wear it! The shape is very flattering too. The material dries quickly if you hang it on the washing line or put it on a rack, and it doesn’t need ironing at all if you hang it up straight away. Bonus! The fit is slightly generous- I’m a curvy 12/14 and the 12 fits perfectly.”
LouLou66 also added: ”Beautiful fit, colour and design. So comfortable and flattering to wear…The only negatives were I did have to put a couple of stitches in the front to stop gaping, and at 5′ 8″ I would say it is quite long for a midi dress but I am used to this with Fatface dresses.”
