This second generation Marlena Midi has been sized down a full size and the armhole has been dropped 1/2" from the first generation. If you ordered a medium last time, you would now order a large; If you're new to this style order true to size.
Our beloved Marlena Midi reimagined in a soft, forgiving knit. This simple dress is an unexpected workhorse - the V-neckline is reversible and can be worn in either the front or the back. Wide shoulder straps provide full, flattering coverage but don't broaden you. Armholes are cut high but not tight giving you room to move but keeping the look super clean. Made in a substantial, quality stretch cotton that molds to your body allowing this silhouette to work for many shapes and sizes.
Named after the Wallflowers song, "Three Marlenas," this dress is a total chameleon. Wear on its own with the crew side in front for a modern, minimal, gallery curator vibe. Go V-forward for a dressier, simple look. Throw on an easy light jacket or try layering over soft, silk trousers. My personal favorite way to wear this is as a slim skirt layered underneath tunics and sweaters. Or, go full on Marlena, and layer under our tank version. Bonus round - wear the Tank and Midi necklines in opposing directions to get total coverage and a super interesting layered look!
A simple piece that has more depth and purpose than most tank dresses. Organic, bias cut rolled edges trim all of the openings - a finish that honors the nature of the material and gels perfectly with the story behind the garment. This trim doesn't interfere with or contradict the nature of the fabric - it feels more like an extension of the way the material wants to behave naturally.
