The “Chuck On” Dress

July 18, 2020

What is a chuck on dress?  I keep seeing that description around the internet when I’m shopping!  A chuck on dress, is just what it sounds like: a dress you just “chuck on” … !!   Breezy frocks that are super easy to wear, just add sneakers or sandals.


I’ve been looking at several chuck on dresses online, but also realized this old gingham dress fits the bill too.  It’s a trend I’m loving right now. Why? It’s super cool and comfy, hides a  little extra quarantine weight, and still looks nice for a Zoom meeting or a weekend adventure!

    I love black and white converse when ‘least expected!’ Not to mention the dress. How can you not feel buoyant and happy in that dress? You wear it all so well.
