A dressy knitted dress is a rare find and the Shirred Faux Wrap Dress from Banana Republic has been a HIT with my clients. There are many reasons to love this frock. The tailored and waist-defining fit is conventionally flattering, giving you an instant hourglass shape. The shirred side seams are forgiving on the midsection. It hugs the contours of your body but is not overly clingy. The curved high-low hemline is interesting. The side seams taper down to the hems providing extra structure. The flutter sleeves look fresh and modern, providing ample coverage for office settings (no topper required). The faux wrap front works well on a shorter neck. And the fabric is super soft making the frock very comfortable. It’s well made and the fabric is quite substantial. 

It is available in colours as well as a striped pattern. Don’t purchase the petite unless you are very petite because it might run too short. It’s currently on sale, which makes the purchase even sweeter.
