I'm between sizes so this is a little too baggy on the chest to make a 100 day challenge but happily did a 30 day with some new bra tops. I'm not sure how a medium would fit so I probably will buy a different style but the material is lovely, its cool and has done several very warm heatwave days without needing to go in the laundry!
If you are on the fence, give this dress a try! It dresses up and acts as casual wear. I ended up wearing the black Brooklyn as my 100 days challenge dress. If you want a snug fit, size down from your size in the dress chart.
Despite being wool it is lovely and light, very summery as well as I got it in the plum shade.
Looks work appropriate with light shoes and leggings, although I have been wearing a vest underneath (just in case).
My only negative finding, it doesn’t have pockets but I can work around that.
This is my second Wool& dress (my first was a sierra tank in navy that I have worn loads for work over the last year) and I have a third ordered (Cora in mauve) so I’m clearly a fan!
A black wool dress, delivered at the start of an English heatwave, I wondered if I had made a mistake, but no. It is really comfortable, versatile and has kept me cool.
I have started on the 100 day challenge which has made choosing what to wear each day a doddle and made the washing pile disappear!
I worked out yesterday how to wear it as a halter neck ( using a ribbon tucked through arms and folding arms in!). As I said very versatile.
For me the waist elastic is perhaps an inch or two high but it does not detract or make me mark this down. Worn it every day for two weeks and as I said, loving it!
Looking at the comments, I sized down to a xs and I’m glad I did as I have small boobs so a s would have made the chest area too baggy. I actually quite like the low cut of the top, it’s sexy without being too much even for the office. I’m interested to see how versatile in winter as the material is thin.
This is my rewarddress. I ordered it after my 100 days in Fiona. Brooklyn long is a nice dress but for me still too short. It is above my knee. The Brooklyn dress looks good, stay good and is comfortabel. But I really have a problem with the lenght. I ordered a long, but it us still too short. It is above my knee and I am not tall at all. The dresses from Wool& are made for tiny women. Unfortunately.
It was also a challenge to order it, as the dress sold out within a few days of finally being available in Europe.
Comfortable material. I can relax and move around in this dress. Looking at the size chart made me think I should get an L but reviews said buyers should pick one size down and so I went with M and I think it fits me well. I've worn it for a week now and it doesn't smell. Wish it had pockets though.
So happy with this dress. I am only 160cm, but the length is prefect for me, just to my knees. I have a size M, and the fit is great. I already had a long sleeve dress, this dress is great for the summer. I love the waist, makes the fit more flattering. The only thing I miss on this dress are the pockets, that would be a fantastic addition. That is the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5.
I originally had two Brooklyns in size S but I am very flat chested and short in the torso and so they gaped on me and I felt the elastic waist was too low. I took the plunge and ordered an XS in black and it is just perfect, so I have also bought the XS in the marine blue. Thank you Wool&. I have rehomed both my Brooklyns to people with more sensible proportions and they are both very happy with them.
I love my dress. In the meantime I've reached day 9 of the challenge. The dress is the perfect length for me, I think it might be too short for tall women. The material is fantastic because it is incredibly light, easy to combine and hardly absorbs any odors. I'm looking forward to the next 91 days and will also report about it regularly on my blog and post the pictures on Instagram. If I could wish for anything, it would be more colors for the dress. Unfortunately, there is only a limited selection in the eu store.
