Anthropologie Velvet Somerset Maxi Dress Review


One thing we know for sure: When designers Anthropologie land on a style that shoppers like, they’ll figure out how to make it work in every possible way. Take the brand’s iconic latte bowls, which have come in seemingly every hue, color, and size over the years. In the clothing department, the endlessly popular, endlessly remixed honor goes to the Somerset dress, which now exists in mini and maxi, linen and leather, and even as a skirt. Earlier this year, we examined the airy linen version of the tiered frock, which was designed for those breezy, summery days. Now, Anthropologie has released an updated luxe velvet version for fall and any upcoming holiday festivities. Instead of summer’s light pastel shades, there are rich jewel tones like fuchsia pink, navy, and emerald green. The structure of the silhouette is still the same, but it’s more lightweight and eye-catching. And reviewers are equally besotted with the cold-weather version.
