Dress of the Day: Betsey Johnson cosy wool jersey dress

Betsey_johnson_dress_2

Many of Betsey Johnson’s dresses look like they’re strictly for playing dress-up in. We don’t mean that as a criticism.

This one is different, though. This one looks like you could wear it almost anywhere, from the office to an evening out. The collar, cuffs and buttons are all very cute indeed, and we also love the fitted shape, complete with structured waist and little kick-pleats to the skirt.

The top half of this dress has a very demure look, but it could be easily accessorized for a more “grown-up” look, too.

Like it? It’s $375 and you can buy it direct from Betsey Johnson’s online boutique.

    Very cute! I agree – Betsey Johnson’s playful personality always shows in her creations, and I love it!

    I feel like the only place I could wear this was in the house, with a feather duster.

    Reminds me of a very unsexy maid uniform and it doesn’t even seem to fit the model well. it’s pulling in some areas and hanging limply in others.

    I’m not sold. It looks unflattering in some places and honestly seems very “First Lady” in a way — and NOT in a good way. I expect different from Betsey.
