Versatile Corduroy Dress from Metrostyle!

November 17, 2016

I feel like fall personified in this spicy sienna corduroy dress from Metrostyle!

versatile corduroy dress, style over 40, midlife fashion


Metrostyle has many trendy pieces for women over 40 who still want to be in style. Their offerings are high quality for an affordable price … always the ideal combination! This Metrostyle Corduroy Dress in Elmwood also comes in a pretty plum and a fall paisley print. This dress can be worn for work or a lunch date … and wouldn’t it look great around the Thanksgiving Day table?  Metrostyle also offers their customers special sizes, ranging from petite to tall.  I tend to like my dresses a little longer, so I ordered a tall and love the length.  I also styled it as a coat and I actually can’t decide which way I like it best.  I love a piece that can be worn several ways.  And there’s a bit of a 70’s vibe in this that just makes me extra happy!

How do you like this piece best … as a dress or a coat? Yay for versatile clothing that can be worn many ways!

Thanksgiving Day is just a week away, Ladies … what are you doing this year?  We can’t decide between staying at home or going out to a restaurant, so I haven’t picked out my outfit for sure yet. Do you know what you’re wearing?  Share with us your plans and outfit in the comments if you feel like it!

    Love the color and 70’s vibe of your dress! Both looks are so chic and I’m loving it styled as a coat!

    What a great idea to wear it so differently!

    I love this color, and I love this used as a coat best, it is perfect wearing with jeans.

    I definitely like it styled like a coat better. It has a more trendy, modern look.

    Great color Dawn! Love this on you both ways. This looks great as a 70s vibe that I know you love.
    Have a good weekend

    You are so right in wearing this dress multiple ways. Thats the great part about dresses like this…it can be worn alone or with something else and add some versatility very easily.
