AMICLUBWEAR has chic clothes for women in midlife

Last week, I introduced you to AMICLUBWEAR. In today’s post, I review the second dress of my choice that I reveived from them, the so-called sexy gray mock neck long sleeve ribbed sweater dress.

Description of AMICLUBWEAR ribbed knit dress

This dress features a neutral gray color. It has a mock neck and long sleeves. The vertical ribbed detail has a slimming effect and gives the illusion of height. On my 5 ft 4 (1.63 m) frame, the hem hits at the knee. The sweater dress has a semi fitted cut. Thus, it is not baggy and doesn’t look frumpy on a 40+ woman. 🙂

The material is 100% acrylic. However, the yarn looks rather like a more expensive material. Also forget about your acrylic experience from the 70s! This sweater dress feels super soft on the skin. No itching or scratching at all!

Styling inspiration for the chic woman over 40

This dress is very versatile. Wearing the dress with tights, house wool socks and a belt for a TV evening on the coach is a no-brainer and ageless option. The sweater dress can also be dressed up for a dinner party with a pearl necklace, tall boots and a statement belt.

In a non-corporate work environment with Casual Friday culture, the ribbed sweater dress would look great with a denim jacket, gray tights and gray ankle booties. Black tights and black riding boots would be another option with a motor cycle jacket worn as blazer. I like the red and gray combination, red booties and belt. See the post at the link for more knit-dress outfit ideas.

Read the AMICLUBWEAR size chart for best fit

Please, have a look at the size chart! It is very important! I usually wear a US size 4 or S in dresses. However, according to the measures in size chart, I needed a size M. Thus, I ordered the dress in M and it is a perfect fit. No clinching or sausage look! <3 Recall,

Size is just a number to specify your order. #styleadvice Click To Tweet

What I love about the AMICLUBWEAR ribbed knit dress

The dress hugs the body in all the right places. I love how the dress makes my bum look feminine. I also love the ribbed sleeves. As you can see in the photos, you can chop the sleeves up, and they stay in place. Using a belt you can adjust the length to hit your sweat point of your leg – in my case above the knee (see styling inspirations with red accessories). You can also use a belt to draw focus to your hips (see inspiration keeping a neutral palette).  For more on  how to best accessorize with belts see the guide at the link.

Price-performance ratio

I like that AMICLUBWEAR offers free US ground shipping on orders over $50 with the AMICLUBWEAR coupon code FREESHIP.

This sexy gray mock neck long sleeve ribbed sweater dress costs $34.99 and with AMICLUBWEAR coupon code (YOU55) $15.75. Its timeless design permits wearing it for more than one cold season. Thus, when you wear it every weekend to the end of this winter, the cost per wear will be already less than a dollar when you use the coupon. When you wear it once every two weeks this and next winter, the cost per wear is also less than $1 per wear, which is my criterion for a good deal.

Conclusions

In summary, I love the dress and would buy it for myself. <3

Did you know that AMICLUBWEAR’s online store has clothes that work for us over 40? If you haven’t yet seen their collection, take a look! I was positively surprised.

Are you currently looking for a semi-formal dress? They have great options for 40+ in that category too. You can read my review on their sequin dress at this link.

Which items of their collection are your favorites? How would you style this gray sweater dress?  Let me know, I am curious. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to send me an email. I love to hear from my readers.
