Over the last few months, I’ve noticed a trend in my TikTok FYP. I’ve seen a lot of people wearing black athletic attire and showing them many ways they can be styled. I recently started doing “Hot Girl Walk” every day, and while I usually wear leggings and a sports bra, after seeing so many beautiful athletic outfits on TikTok, I knew I had to get one. One bad side? All the options I was looking for online were out of my price range
Last month, I decided to put more effort into my search, and I finally found a beautiful, affordable alternative to the expensive ones: Old Navy Sleeveless PowerSoft Performance Racer-back Mini Swing Dress ($ 45). As soon as I got it in the mail, I knew it was going to be a winner. The material was soft, the length was perfect and it was 10 times more expensive than it really was. For all the details of my favorite new outfit and ideas on how to style it, keep reading.
What I like about this old navy dress
I always like clothes because in my mind, they are a “one and done” dress. You don’t have to worry about matching the top and bottom because once you drop the dress you are already set. This outfit is no different, and I like that it can be easily worn on top or bottom and can be worn in a range of different activities. Plus, it’s beyond comfort. The material feels like butter and is comfortable enough to wear all day – even I wore it on a six hour road trip driving to Los Angeles and had zero problems.
My favorite way to style this outfit is a pair of sneakers or sandals and a white button-down top. I like that the white button-down addition makes the dress look cohesive and chic. When I go for a more casual look, I throw a sweater or sweatshirt over my shoulder and usually also wear a baseball cap. No matter how I wear it, I always get a lot of questions about where my dress comes from and people are always amazed at how affordable it is.
What is worth noting
This dress is meant to flow more than tight-fitting. I’m wearing my normal XS, but it’s still wide to me. If you are looking for a tighter fit, I would definitely recommend the following size. Otherwise, you are probably safe by choosing your normal size. There are over 650 reviews of the dress on the Old Navy website, with lots of photos you can check if you are interested in seeing different sizes of dress.
Who is this dress best for?
I think this dress is a great addition to anyone’s closet. Pair it with sneakers and make it the perfect outfit for everyday hot girls to wear for walking, running or even workouts. It’s versatile, so I like that I can switch my sneakers to a pair of sandals and wear this outfit for brunch with my girlfriends. I would recommend it to anyone!
- This dress comes in XS-4X sizes as well as regular, long and short sizes.
- It has a comfortable built-in shelf bra with adjustable straps.
- The fabric is 77 percent polyester and 23 percent spandex. The instructions are to cool the machine wash and hang it dry. I followed these instructions, and my clothes are still in tip-top shape.
- The dress comes in six different colors: black, pink, green, white, light blue and black leopard print.
