Weird color

Reviewed by Backcountry Skier Nerd from Colorado on Thursday, October 13, 2016
I like most of what Mountain Hardware rolls out, so I decided to give this dress a try based on the price and design.

The actual design of the dress is very nice: the v-neck, longer sleeves, and hemline are all flattering. As expected, the sizing was on the smaller side (something Mountain Hardware seems to consistently do with their women's wear.)

The color of the dress, on the other hand, was an absolute no.

The black is fine – the "stripes" are the offenders. The product photo led me to believe they would be white. In reality they are yellowish, somewhere between Cream (#FFFDD0 for those inclined to google hex color codes) and Lemon Chiffon (#FFFACD). As a blond with yellow-tinged skin and pale eyebrows, this was the opposite of flattering. Back in the box it went.

Would probably look flattering on someone with darker hair/skin, or someone who can pull off yellows. ;-)

5'8" –– 160 lbs –– athletic build. Medium fit fine.
