Rated 4 out of 5 by JEMML What's Up With the Sleeves?
I really like this dress, which I ordered on the clearance day in black, size small. I am 5'6", weigh 155, and normally wear a medium, size 10/12 in real world clothes. After reading the reviews about this dress, I sized down. Glad I did. It fits beautifully. Not too clingy at all. I can see wearing it this fall with a scarf, tights or leggings and a pair of boots. The reason I bring up the sleeves in the title is that this is about the 4th H by Halston garment I have or have nearly sent back because the sleeves are too short and way too fitted, i.e. tight, in the forearm and wrist area. I do have longer arms but have never had this problem before with other garments that fit my body correctly elsewhere. I guess it's a style thing that just does not work for me. Keeping the dress and looking forward to wearing it this fall.
Rated 4 out of 5 by singingurl215 A bit itchy
This Halston dress shipped quickly. I ordered it in an XL in black. Since it's a bit itchy, I plan on wearing a thin layer underneath it. Can't wait to pair it with an OBI belt, tights and cute ankle boots.
Rated 5 out of 5 by PhDMom Cozy, but stylish sweater dress
I got this in black and love it! I'm only 5'2" and I could wear it as a tunic if I really wanted to on a very cold day. I wore this to a work event with opaque tights, fringe booties and a GILI obi belt and got lots of compliments. It's not too long, but still gave me plenty of coverage. Definitely a day to night piece.
Rated 4 out of 5 by aspenlight BEAUTIFUL SUBTLE HEATHER KNIIT; VERY PRETTY DRESS
I BOUGHT MINE WHEN IT WAS NOT ON SALE. I GOT THE COBALT BLUE IN XS. I AM 5'5 1/2" AND USUALLY WEAR A SIZE 4, AND XXS OR XS, DEPENDING ON THE ACTUAL GARMENT MEASUREMETS.
THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL SOFT SWEATER DRESS AND THE FIT IS FLATTERING AND COMFORTABLE.
I RECOMMEND PRESSING THE DRESS, ESPECIALLY THE HEM WHEN YOU FIRST GET IT, SO IT WILL HANG STRAIGHT AND PROPERLY! YOU WILL NEED TO DO THIS.
THE ONLY THING I STRUGGLED WITH IS THE SHORTER LENGTH ON THE LEFT SHORTER HEM SIDE OF THE ASYMETRICAL HEM, ABOVE THE KNEE. WHEN YOU WEAR BOOTS IT WOULD LOOK BETTER NOT TO HAVE JUST YOUR ONE KNEE PEEKING OUT. I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS A GOOD INCH OR TWO LONGER, TO COMFORTABLY AND CONFIDENTLY HIT JUST BELOW THE KNEE. IT WOULD LOOK SO MUCH BETTER WITH TALL BOOTS, A SHORTER BOOT, AND A HEELS. NOT EVERYONE HAS PERFECT MODEL LEGS. MY INNER KNEE BONES STICK OUT WIDER THAN I WOULD LIKE. I KNOW THERE ARE OTHER WOMEN THAT DON'T LOVE THEIR KNEES! I HAVE SLENDER THIGHS AND EVEN THE FAMOUS THIGH GAP, BUT I LITERALLY TUG DOWN ON THE HEM OF THIS DRESS TO GET IT TO HANG AS LONG AS POSSIBLE, TO HIDE THAT PROTRUDING INNER KNEE BONE!
CAMERON, YOU SAY YOU READ EVERY REVIEW, SO I HOPE THE FEEDBACK IS WELCOMED! I WOULD BUY MORE DRESSES IF THEY HIT JUST BELOW THE KNEE, AND I HAVE BOUGHT A LOT OF H BY HALSTON FASHIONS THAT I ADORE!
I DO LOVE THIS DRESS, AND THE COBALT COLOR IS BEAUTIFUL. IT IS NOT OVERLY VIBRANT OR TOO BRIGHT, BUT A RICHLY SOFT AND ELEGANT BLUE, AND A GREAT COLOR FOR ANYONE LIKE ME WITH BLUE EYES AND BLONDE HAIR, THAT REALLY SHOWS UP NICELY AGAINST THE BLUE.
THANK YOU AGAIN! MY HALSTON WARDROBE IS GROWING, AND THIS HEATHERED COLOR LOOKS BEAUTIFUL WITH ALL MY GRANITE CARDIGANS, CREATING A FABULOUS AND LOVELY COLOR COMBINATION, AND CHANGE OF PACE.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Rachelw617 Did not love, sent back
I got this in the blue, but it is much...paler? than it looks on screen. It also runs very big, I would have needed to size down for it to fit correctly for me. However, since I wasn't loving the color, I didn't want to exchange. I wish it had been a bit more of a brighter true cobalt.
Rated 3 out of 5 by FinnyMinny Too Itchy for Me
I like this dress a lot, and I thought I'd be ok with the 15% wool, but it was still too itchy for me, so it has to go back. It's a close fit with a fine gauge knit, so I can't wear another layer underneath it, otherwise I'd love to keep it. I'd LOVE something else in this style but without the wool content and with a more reasonable price tag.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Luckylizzie714 Easy Dressing
This looks great on, skims the body in my normal size and I carry weight in my tummy and thighs, so don't be afraid that it will cling in the wrong places. Got the black and wore it with the Halston mauve oversized boyfriend sweater. Fabulous! So comfortable and easy to wear but really dressy. Also, the Halston items seem to ship really fast. My first two pieces, but now I won't hesitate to order Halston again
