Rated 5 out of 5 by aTallDrinkofWater perfect work dress
J.Crew, please don't ever discontinue this awesome dress. It is a perfect fit on me without tailoring (I confess that I wear one size larger on top than on bottom due to a full bust and slim hips; this fits perfectly in my usual top/dress size. Often I have to get dresses taken in in the hips/thighs but not this one). I love the shape and the pockets. It is simple and classic without being boring. I have worn this with jackets, cardigans, and a variety of different jewelry to change up the look for court, business meetings, desk-to-drinks, etc. I own it in multiple colors and fabrics. I would buy as many as were offered, as long as they weren't poly. I cannot recommend this dress highly enough.

This dress is by far the best work dress out there. Just throw on this dress, a schoolboy blazer, tassel necklace and Valentina heels and you are ready for anything! I have it in 5 colors and hope JCREW continues to keep making this dress. I can honestly say that the very first Emmaleigh that I purchased in 2011 still looks just as awesome today as it did when I bought it and I wear it at least 3x a month. My typical size 2 fits like a glove and comfortably accommodates my 32d bust which is much appreciated given that most other JCREW dresses pull at the chest. The super 120's fabric is so durable and the color saturation is fantastic. Please make more fun colors again!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Poire Pear shapes size up
Great dress for work - professional suiting fabric that can layer easily under jackets in a streamlined silhouette. I ultimately returned it because the size 8 was too small for me in the thighs. I would have to go up a size and get the torso altered. I usually take a 6/8/10 in J. Crew dresses depending on fit in the bottom half and the fabric used - the description is correct in saying that the silhouette on this is fitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Venicegrl Excellent versatile work dress
Such an excellent dress!!! Why did I take so long to invest in it! It can be dressed down with a casual blazer and flats, or dress it up with pumps and jewelry. I love the fit. Very work appropriate. I felt the bust was a little loose but its not too bad. Don't size up since it stretches to fit your shape.

I really love Emmaleigh dresses and I have three of them (heather grey, royal blue and violet). Jcrew used to have more colorful Emmaleigh dresses but recenlty, they have been stuck to only basic colors. The quality is great. You can wear them spring to winter. It makes you look really professional yet cute. Unlike other people's comments, the dress can be a little tight but not that small. Since I am short (5'2''), the regular size is too long. I wish Jcrew retail stores carry petite size as well. Also, more colors, please.
