This is Anthropologie's 'most fabulous' dress ever — and it's perfect for the holidays
If you're a regular Yahoo Lifestyle Canada reader, you'll know we have a particular affinity for Anthropologie's Somerset Maxi Dress.
A cult-favourite among Anthropologie shoppers, the "universally flattering" dress has become one of the retailer's most sought-after styles, earning the approval of thousands of shoppers and one of our very own Yahoo Canada editors.
While the Somerset's summer dresses are perhaps its best-known (P.S. — several of them are on sale), the collection's new fall and winter styles are already winning over shoppers, with reviewers dubbing them "perfect for the holidays."
The Somerset Maxi Dress: Shine Edition
Anthropologie's Somerset Maxi Dress is the retailer's "bestselling" and "best reviewed dress, ever." The versatile style has been dubbed the dress equivalent of the "Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants," thanks to its V-neck design and figure-flattering smocked waist.
The Somerset is available in petite, regular and plus sizes — and comes in an array of colour, print, fabric, and length options. While the cotton version of the maxi dress went viral this past summer, we expect to see the shiny Somerset make the rounds come holiday party season.
For those who aren't fans of the lustrous fabric or would prefer one of the brand's famous printed styles, the Somerset collection includes mini dresses and varying lengths of skirts: Click here to see them all.
What people are saying
Since Anthropologie's 2022 Holiday Collection is still relatively new, the shiny Somerset has yet to collect many reviews. However, early adopters call it "super flattering" and say it "falls nicely [...] without showing any lumps and bumps."
It's "chic and flattering," writes one Anthro shopper.
Predating the shiny Somerset is the collection's velvet maxi dress. A holiday party must-have, Anthropologie shoppers call the velvet dress "beautiful" and compliment its "buttery soft" fabric.
The Somerset Maxi Dress: Velvet Edition
According to one shopper, it's the "most fabulous" dress.
"Comfortable, beautiful, flattering and [it has] pockets!" they write.
The velvet Somerset is "perfect for the holidays," says another. It is "so soft and extremely comfortable."
"I could go on forever about how awesome [it is]," praises a third shopper. The dress is "gorgeous" and "timeless," they write. "Very roomy yet flattering."
The Somerset is "universally flattering" and gives the illusion of an "hourglass" figure, lauds another reviewer.
