As a shopping editor, I keep track of new releases all day, every day. Each year, as summer approaches, my mission is to find myself the perfect white dress. It’s basically the LBD of the season. I have always had a tough time discovering a design both flattering and on-trend — half the summery options out there are just loose shifts to throw on over swimsuits. I want something I can easily dress up or down.
Then, I discovered Billie the Label. This new brand (offered in sizes 0-14) sells classic silhouettes with cool details that make them the elevated staples of my dreams. If Reformation and Everlane had a baby, I’d name it Billie.
When I tried the brand for myself, I instantly fell in love with this Billie the Label Eleanor Dress ($178) — the quality and fit are straight-up perfection. I literally gasped when I opened the package because the dress was even better in person; a figure-flattering A-line skirt, fashion-girl puff sleeves, and a sturdy zipper make it the ideal summer dress. At last, I found it!
As a girl with a smaller waist and wider hips in proportion to each other, I couldn’t ask for a better cut. I also don’t have to wear a bra with it, which is a rare win for a D-cup. If I don’t sell it for you, just look at Martha Hunt wearing it like the style icon that she is. It’s comfy enough to put on when I’m chilling around the house, but I can’t wait to dress it up with strappy heels a couple month down the road.
Ahead, I’m giving you all the shopping details — the dress comes in black and plaid as well. Make sure to take a look and treat yourself while you can. I’ll be going back for another color — it’s that good.
