I love dresses more than any other garment. If I could, I’d wear them all year long. I particularly love when they’re soft, sustainably made, and have pockets! Enter the Aaliyah Midi Dress. It’s so lovely, lightweight, and well-made from sustainable organic cotton that it feels like a dream. This dress is flowy, laid-back, and so versatile. It could be worn as a cover-up at the beach or out for dinner, and everything in between, which is how I know I’ll take this with me on my next journey.

The tiered construction of this dress makes it loose and comfortable, and it fits like a dream. I love how easy to wear this is and how it looks like something a Greek goddess would wear. In addition to the ink-black color, it comes in white and pink lavender, both of which are perfect for spring and summer. This piece is so well-made that, like all of my other pieces from Skin, it will be something I reach for season after season, year after year.
Another thing I love about this dress is the low back. It’s fun and flirty without being too scandalous to wear in public, and I can get sun on my skin in the summer without worrying about funny tan lines. Although I can’t really get a tan, I still think about this whenever I get dressed, haha. Maybe someday I’ll get bronzed!
I’ve had this black ribbon straw hat for years, and it’s always fun to pull out and dream about warmer weather. I love keeping the sun off my face with sunhats like this, and though it’s an older style from J. Crew, it’s such a classic. If you haven’t already, check out my list of more than 600 straw hats under $50. I wrote the article in 2020, but most of them are still available, and some are one-of-a-kind or custom-made to order!
Regarding sizing, I’m wearing my normal size here, and if you’d like a more fitted look, you could comfortably size down. The fabric has a nice stretch to it, and it’s easily washed. See more of my favorite pieces from Skin, here.

This looks so great on you! I wish I could pull off something like this, but I don’t have the confidence to wear something so low-cut.
