When you think of Lilly Pulitzer you typically think of bright colors and bold prints but their solid pieces are some of my favorites and the Lilly Pulitzer Meadow Midi Eyelet Shirtdress is no different! Summer might also come to mind next as the ideal time to wear Lilly but this dress is great for this summer to fall transitional weather.
Lilly Pulitzer Meadow Midi Eyelet Shirtdress
I do want to warn you that this dress is definitely an investment piece, but it’s a piece that you can wear for years and years to come. The classic black color makes this dress instantly timeless and the simple fit and flare silhouette is flattering on so many different body types.
I’m 5’2″ so this “midi length” dress is more of a maxi on me but I actually really like the length. On me, it hits right above the ankles so I still have the option to wear it with heels or sandals without having to worry about it touching the ground.
The details on this dress are stunning and when I actually think of Lilly one of the first things to come mind is details. From zipper pulls to hidden bra strap snaps each one of their pieces is carefully designed. This dress features the gorgeous eyelet lace with touches of embroidered trim to really tie it together.
The detachable tie waist is a great option to use as a bow as I did here or detach it add in your own belt for a pop of color or even pattern.
The black slip underneath is also detachable but it is included so you are all set to pop it out of the package and put it on! I have even seen some girls wear the dress open/unbuttoned and style it more like a duster which I love to more cost per wear out of the look.
My favorite thing about this dress is the sleeves though. I am a sucker for any dress with sleeves because I find it’s more flattering on my figure.
Of course, events are limited right now but this dress would be perfect for wedding, rehearsal dinners, date nights, Senior photos, beach vacations and so much more! Personally, I have an outdoor wedding reception coming up and this has my name all over it!
