If I could pick one dress to wear for the rest of my life (something I desperately hope I don't ever have to do), I would most definitely go with a wrap dress, and almost certainly go with the Ellen Dress. A dress that's both comfortable AND elegant? I could live with that for eternity.
With a modest-but-not-too-modest neckline, a just-at-the-knee hem, and delicate flutter sleeves, the Ellen is the epitome of an elegant day dress. The super-soft double gauze fabric makes the dress airy and perfect for warm weather, and the hassle-free construction makes it one of the most effortless dresses you could wear.

This dress is made of cotton double gauze from Japan. Composed of two layers of gauze that have been tacked together, double gauze is unbelievably soft and breathable. It is light and airy and one of those fabrics that, like linen, is wrinkle-prone, but that's part of what makes it so great — even the first time you wear it, double gauze feels soft and rumpled and worn in, and it only gets softer with repeated washes and wears.
Take a look at our Size Guide to find your size.
As are most wrap dresses, the Ellen is quite forgiving as far as size goes. If your measurements fall in between sizes, or if you're otherwise unsure of which size to get, I recommend sizing down.
