- Shop Cozy Try On Haul in a Nutshell
Disclosure: Ad. The dresses are samples of my choice from ShopCozy. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely myself and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.
Curious about Shop Cozy?
On first view, Shop Cozy’s online store seems to serve Millennials. Sure, it’s summer, so they offer beach wear and maxi dresses suitable for vacation or even a beach wedding. However, when browsing their dress collection, the large variety of dresses that seemed to be suitable for women over 40 and plus size, made me curious. Therefore, I picked three shirt dresses, one print dress, and a knit sweater dress to see them in real, i.e. off-line.
In general, shirt dresses are preppy style, very versatile, and an eternal classic. They can be styled up to look professional and sophisticated at work, but also dressed down for running errands, shopping at the farmer’s market, and even for sightseeing. A sweater dress is nice on chilly evenings at the campfire.
What Surprised Me
When I opened the package, I was very pleased with the quality of the fabrics. Much better then I had expected! Also, the craftmanship exceeded my expectations. The army-green and blue shirt dresses, for instance, have pockets. Typically, only dresses from medium to bridge brands have this feature.
Furthermore, their inside is a satin weave. Consequently, the fabric feels cool to the touch, and the dress flows nicely over your underwear. No awkward uprising.
Except for the sweater and jersey dress, all dresses came with a removable fabric belt. I really like that the belts are removable. Furthermore, I love that the designer chose fabric belts, instead of cheap plastic belts. Most people would toss the plastic belts and accessorize with their own belts. Using removable fabric belts avoids waste, and offers you the choice between the dress’ belt and your own.
Styling tip: Wear the dress with your favorite belt and wear the fabric belt as headband or in a bow on your bag.
What Else I Wanted to Find Out
To find out whether Shop Cozy clothes are true to size, I ordered the same dress in army-green and blue. Both dresses only differ in size within the margin of less than 1/8 inch (3 mm). Therefore, a piece ordered according to their size chart and your body measurements should fit.
Shop Cozy Online Store and Price-Performance Ratio
The website navigation and ordering tool are easy to use. Many of the garments have multiple customer reviews, most of them are 4 stars and up.
Despite the five dresses are relatively cheap, they look more expensive due to the quality of the fabrics, simple cuts, and love for details. The classic design and neutral colors of the shirt dresses permits to wear them for more than one summer. Consequently, the cost-per-wear can go below $1 over the items’ tenure in your wardrobe.
An abstract floral print is a year round favorite among celebrities and commoners alike. A cozy sweater jumper is a Must-have for comfort. Therefore, as time progresses, the cost-per-wear of these garments also will go below $1, which is my criterion for a Great Deal.
Who Will Like these Shop Cozy Dresses?
When your personal style is American Classic, preppy style and/or your office dress code asks for business casual dresses, the shirt dresses are affordable wardrobe additions for summer. The sleeves cover the arms, which is beneficial to hide bingo wings and to fight an über-performing AC. Outside these sleeves can be rolled up for style/comfort.
Every outdoor gal likes a cozy sweater dress as coverup when sitting at a campfire in the evenings.
When you love colors, the bold abstract floral dress in its simple T-shirt cut is a great timeless option for the weekend and vacation.
Definitely, I can recommend these dresses to my best friends.
