For me summer is synonymous with sundresses! Every year I look forward to adding a Patagonia dress or two to my collection.
During the dog days of summer, I am happiest in a cute dress for several reasons:
- They are comfortable.
- They let me be active.
- I look pulled together without trying, because all I actually did was pull a dress over my head.
With so many outdoor festivals in Ann Arbor dresses are a great go-to piece. I often ride my bike to Top of the Park in a sundress with shorts underneath. It kind of makes me feel like an 8-year-old — in a good way!
One of my favorite styles this year is the Patagonia West Ashley. It is a soft cotton knit with a fun print in either green or blue tones. Don’t let the way it looks on the hanger fool you, the cinching elastic at the waist gives it a flattering drape and the cutout in the back gives it that touch of extra interest.
Another dress I am digging this season is the Kamala Maxi Skirt. This is extra versatile because you can wear it as a strapless dress or as a skirt. It is roomy and has a festival vibe to it.
Finally there is Margot. The Margot has been a mainstay of the Patagonia collection for several seasons. The faux wrap bodice and to-the-knee hem flatters a variety of body types. In the past I have worn it on a lazy farmer's market morning with flip flops, or dressed it up and wore it to dinner with strappy sandals, and even to a garden wedding with wedges.
This list is just a sampling of all of the dresses that Bivouac carries in the Women’s Tech department. We also have a large selection from other top quality outdoor brands such as prAna, Lolë, Toad and Co., The North Face, and Kuhl. Drop in soon while we still have a full selection of colors and styles!
