When you are shopping for designer dresses it is so refreshing to find designer jersey dresses because they are so comfortable, easy to care for, and can still look so stylish and can be great versatile pieces in your closet. We love super soft fabrics like rayons and modals just as much as the next person, but let’s be honest, they are great to wear, but often are dry clean only and sometimes can be so delicate that it makes you nervous to wear them. As a great alternative that frequently happens to be more economical consider a few of our favorite great designer jersey cotton dresses when you are out on your next shopping trip.
We love dresses by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer and they are well known for their variety of styles traditionally made using basic baby jersey cotton or their lighter gauzy whisper cotton fabric. The gauzy whisper line features a hint of spandex to give it a more fitted look and feel. One of our favorite new dresses that is part of Velvet’s Baby Jersey Collection is the Larina ¾ Sleeve Dress. As the name suggests it featureLarina ¾ Sleeve DressLarina ¾ Sleeve Dressalong with a crochet detail around the wide scoop neckline. This dress has a looser fit and hits our 5’7” model just about an inch above the knee. You can wear this dress as shown or belted depending on your individual style. A great dress for spring and it can even be worn just about year round depending on your preferences with the ¾ length sleeves. This dress is also available in great colors such as Truffle (Lavender), Pistachio (Green) and Mink (Charcoal Grey).
Another great dress made of jersey cotton is the Olka Dress also by Velvet. This dress features pleats around the neckline along with an empire waist which is accented by a wide bow that can be tied in front as an added feminine touch. We love the flirty bow and pleats which make this dress stand out from the typical basic dresses you may find elsewhere. This dress also features ¾ length sleeves and a deep v neck in front. The Olka dress is an example of a great versatile dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Finally, consider the Doreen Cutout Dress featuring cutouts around the shoulder area in the sleeves. This dress is part of the Gauzy Whisper collection and definitely caters to a fitted look. We love it because it really is unlike most dresses you will see out there and it does have a flirty edge to it. It features a slim fitted style and it hits above the knee. We love the look of this dress with a pair of high boots and no question this dress is a total statement when you go out. Best of all, it is made of jersey cotton and of course is comfortable and easy to wear.
As you can see each of these dresses has a very different look, but they are all great examples of the breadth of options out there for someone shopping for designer jersey dresses. We hope you can see that it is possible to find reasonably priced designer dresses made of jersey cotton that are stylish and modern without breaking the budget.
