Frank & Eileen Rory Maxi Shirtdress Review
From the minute I first tried on the Frank & Eileen Rory Maxi Shirtdress, I knew we had a winner on our hands. This dress has all of the Coastal Grandmother of 2022 vibes mixed with New England effortless. The first thing I noticed was that the material, while soft, has structure. It’s a true denim material that doesn’t have a hint of see through. I can wear nude underwear with this and I’m good to go, no slip required.
If you’ve ever struggled with a flimsy white dress, you know this is huge.
The next was that it’s a shirtdress that still has a shape. I have it nipped in at the waist here with a scarf but, even on its own, it still feels tailored. It can hold its own for an occasion where you need to look nice for a lunch, but it’s also casual enough to wear around the house. It’s a one and done piece that you instantly feel pulled together while wearing. I’ve already reached for it again and again over the past two weeks.
