The House Dress Is Back!

The House Dress Is Back!

You know you’ve arrived when you start getting called out as the “trend of the year”! The summer of 2020 saw the house dress featured everywhere from elite fashion bloggers to articles in big mags like Cosmo and our very own Boho Embroidered Sleeveless Dress was featured in Women’s World! Not to brag but we’ve been talking about “house dresses” for years!

As we’ve all transitioned to temporary stay-at-home, work-from-home lifestyles, we’re not surprised that women are returning to this beautiful wardrobe choice. Whether you officially call your house dress a Kaftan or a Tunic, a Maxi or a Midi, it is absolutely an upgrade from slouchy sweats or yoga pants.

What’s not to love? A cute house dress checks every box we need to get through these crazy days:

✔ Stylish and unique so you will rock your next Zoom! (No judgment, but we all know that everyone else wearing a button-down shirt is, for sure, wearing sweats underneath.)

✔ Comfortable and casual enough to wear around the house all day. The flowy, billowy style of a house dress gives you room to move without a tight waistband or too short hemline. And you’ll still look great whether you’re bringing in the latest delivery or running to the market.

✔ Easy to wear in every season. Cool and breezy on their own for hot summer days but also super cute over a pair of warm leggings or matched with a comfy shrug.

✔ Sustainable, ethical, small-business made. When you buy from Back from Bali, you are also supporting our family-owned, artisan producers who make all our clothing. Everything is hand created (so no factory production for us) with locally sourced, sustainable materials.

✔ A serious mood elevator – there’s just something about putting on a dress that brightens our spirits and improves our attitude. Something we can all use right now! And when you’re wearing something soft, comfy, and super cute (like this maxi dress  or this short dress) you can conquer the world (even if it is from your kitchen table).

✔ So on trend you’ll get comments whenever you wear these pieces (not to repeat ourselves but that never happens when you’re wearing sweats and a baggy tee!). Be prepared because your girlfriends will want details on your next Video Happy Hour!

We have so many styles to choose from including Mexican-style embroidery, unique traditional and modern batiks, tie-dyes, and florals. Really enough to spice up your wardrobe and mix and match with your traditional pieces. Of course, we love all our dresses but these are the three most popular styles we’ve seen go out the door this summer:

Maxi Boho Sleeveless V-Neck with Embroidery

Long Loose African Dress With Pockets

Long Mexico Embroidered Dress
