J.Crew Softspun Sunrise Dress

The new Softspun Sunrise Dress from J.Crew looks to be a cute little dress – comfortable, flattering, and versatile enough to be dressed up or down.

In real life, it is just as adorable. It’s super flattering to the bust line, with the detailing at the center drawing the eye. The color is also a great neutral that I think looks great with a cognac leather belt, some tights, and cognac-colored boots for fall/winter. This can pass for a more formal, business type dress, or throw on some sandals and go shopping. Love versatile dresses.

I’m wearing: J.Crew Smooth Leather Belt, J.Crew Glass Pools Bracelet, Nine West Getby Wedges

The length is great, the material is substantial but soft, and it’s probably one of the most versatile pieces you can own. What’s not to love?

Get it here from J.Crew for $68.

  1. Love this dress…you look great! how tall are you and what size are you wearing, if you don’t mind me asking? I got the softspun sunset dress and it was too short for me. I’m trying the next size up to see if I can gain any length.

  2. Appgal – thanks! I’m 5’6 and I’m wearing a Small. I’m actually going to do a review of the Sunset dress next. I got that in a Small as well and it hits me about the same spot as this Sunrise dress. Hope that helps!

  3. From the side shot on JCrew’s website, the dress appears to poof-out under the gathering at the bust. Does the dress poof-out on you if you’re not wearing the belt? I’m going to give it a try anyway but was curious if it’s going to be a no-go for me, like the Saturday twist dress, because of the poofy effect.

    Great blog! Thank you for posting the pictures!

  4. Hi there, I’m trying to decide between the small and xsmall – would you say the dress runs small, large, or true to size?

  5. JustVisiting – Sorry I somehow missed your comment! The dress does not poof out on me without the belt. It drapes very nicely since the material is relatively heavy. But I’m sure you’ve already made your own judgment since you asked 2 months ago!
