The LuLaRoe Carly dress is hands down my favorite LuLaRoe dress. It’s probably the most flattering dress in LuLaRoe’s mainline in my opinion. There are so many aspects of the dress that I love. The high-low hemline and the way it flows away from the body. The reason the Carly is so flattering on every body type is it’s silhouette.
LuLaRoe Carly Dress
The Carly is considered a swing style dress. This harkens back to the 1920s and continues to the Swing Era of the 1940s. The 1940s were full of dancing and women had a desire to still look feminine while out on the town. The most famous dance during this time was the Lindy Hop and required comfortable clothing to dance in. The classic swing dress was designed to move freely with the dancer and allow her to flash a little leg at the same time. The hem was knee length and fitted at the waist. Swing dresses in the 1940s used less fabric than the 1950s version because on fabric rationing. LuLaRoe designed the Carly to be a modern take on this classic style.
The Carly dress first debuted in the summer of 2015 and quickly became the number one selling dress in the mainline. The dress is a modern twist on the classic swing style dress. The dress still features a fitted bodice and flares out from the body without the structured waistline. The hemline is high-low meaning the back is longer than the front. You can still flash a little leg with this modern take. Many of the Carly’s feature a front accent pocket. Don’t worry if you aren’t a fan of the pocket! It’s super easy to remove. This dress is so fun to play with and the sizing gives you the freedom to try different styling techniques. Most women size down one to two sizes from their normal dress size. Who doesn’t love that???
The Carly dress is a steal at $55!!! If you love the Carly dress as much as I do make sure to check out the ones I currently have in my boutique!
