Merrell Emery Dress Review
The Merrell Emery Dress is not only cute and stylish, it is also extremely versatile and durable. The Emery Dress’ practical fabric keeps the dress looking fresh, and mind you wrinkle free, even after 1, 2, or even 3 wears in a row. The Emery Dress, therefore, is a traveler’s dream as it resists wrinkling or losing its’ shape, is easy to wash and wear, and air dries quickly.
The Merrell Emery Dress features Merrell’s Opti-Wick fabric, which is a combination of 90% polyester and 10% elastane. The combination is light weight, breathable, does not cling, and really moves with you. The Opti-Wick feels and acts like a tech fabric, without looking like one.
The Merrell Emery Dress is slightly fitted in the bust and then has an a-line silhouette. The cap sleeves and scoop neck keep the dress from feeling too formal, yet hides enough skin, making it appropriate for work and play situations. The dress is available in size extra small to large; I found that it ran true to size. However, if you are quite thin, the XS may still be too large for you as the a-line is not all that dramatic, which may leave the dress quite roomy through the hips. The center back length is 36″, which allows the hem to hit just at the knees on the average wearer, a perfect length in my book.
Accessorizing the Merrell Emery Dress allows you to wear it in a variety of occasions. For instance, add a belt to break up the solid colors; worn at the high waist or on the hips to dress it up or down. Pair the dress with some leggings or tights in the cooler months and consider pairing with a cardigan as well. The Merrell Emery Dress is available in classic black, as well as a shade perfect for summer, Nectarine (featured above).
