More often than not, I wear dresses to stay cool and comfortable, particularly when the temperatures rise. 100% cotton is the way to go, which is why MERSEA Patio Dress, a one size fits all maxi dress with an adjustable neckline, has been my go-to dress for comfort and style as we transition from spring to summer. Not only is it versatile and beautiful, but it’s also so comfortable and can be worn day or night, city, beach, or countryside, dressed up or down.

During our time at Wildflower Farms in Hudson Valley, NY, I wore this dress to brunch and for an afternoon at the spa and pool. It was so comfortable, easy to wear, and the perfect casual dress in such an idyllic, pastoral setting. I was a bit hesitant because this piece is one size fits all, but it ended up being so comfortable because the ties at the neckline can be tightened to make it a little shorter. If you compare the lengths of the two photos above, the first is the perfect length; the second is a bit longer.
If you’re really short, this dress may need a bit of tailoring, but it would be perfect for anyone 5’4″ – 5’10”. It also comes in two different colors. There’s this white and this bronze color. These sell out quickly, so if you have your eye on either color, snag them before they’re gone or hop on the waitlist if it’s sold out.
MERSEA is an ethical, sustainable, woman-owned company that supports artisans both domestically and internationally, and their pieces are perfect for travelers with a sense of style who want something sophisticated, well-made, and long-lasting. II’ve washed and worn this dress several times this spring on my travels, at the beach, and around the house, and it’s one of the most comfortable garments I own. I can’t wait to show you more ways I’ve styled this simple yet lovely white cotton maxi dress.
