Grey Sweater Dress 3.1 Phillip Lim $625 at ScoopNYC

I have a feeling I’m going to get some heat for this but I plan on sticking to my guns: I hate this dress. Loved the color and the idea but the execution is all wrong. First, the cashmere/cotton blend is a great idea is theory but in the world of wearers it means stretching and fading. Second, the shapelessness of the dress (ick, especially the crew neck) and the huge vertical pattern does absolutely nothing to highlight any positive shape, line or curve of this poor model so I sincerely doubt it’s going to do anything for you. 3.1 Phillip Lim is usually ranked in my top 10 so I’m not sure what happened… I’m going to call is a runway-to-reality translation problem.– Joanne Molina, Senior Editor
