It can be dressed up or dressed down (heels or flats) and can be worn on it's own or paired with a sweater. It's nylon/spandex material is sleek and draping (can you say "slimming"!) and is also moisture-wicking. Living in NC where the humidity is crazy, I've come to appreciate those qualities in a garment. I have another dress and two skirts made from the same material. I'm a huuuuge fan! and could be happy with my closet full of these clothes. They're not just limited to Patagonia, though. Columbia, North Face, and various other companies sell them also. I just like Patagonia's designs the best. So with the warmer weather just around the corner, I'm going to be looking for deals. A word of advice. Check out local stores for better prices.
On the opposite end of the seasonal spectrum, this coat was a Christmas present from my husband:
One word...warm! Love, love, love it!! It's the first coat I pull from the closet everyday. Now, sometimes I have to put it back because it's just too warm out, but I always try. It's also my first red coat which should always make a girl's favorite list.
