I’d never thought I’d be saying this, but one of my go-to outfits this summer involves athleisure. I found the OFFLINE By Aerie Nylon Pleated Exercise Dress a couple of weeks ago and only wish I had found it sooner! The exercise dress originally came in black, white, and some other fun seasonal colors, but at the time of this post, the white is all that’s left.
It’s way too hot in Central Florida to dress how I’d like to dress during the summer…unless I’m okay with sweating through my outfit. The OFFLINE by Aerie Nylon Pleated Exercise Dress came in clutch with a breathable option that doesn’t show sweat. The pockets on the built-in shorts are the cherry on top. I have been able to wear the dress without a bra with minimal issues.
Here are two ways I’ll be wearing the OFFLINE by Aerie Nylon Pleated Exercise Dress: with a striped (or plain white) button-down and my Nike Zoom Air Fire sneakers or with a sweater (either a sweatshirt or knit fabric) draped over my shoulders. I layered a couple of Maison Miru necklaces with a repurposed YSL button necklace from Audrey Leighton Vintage. I love the preppy feel without overheating.
As for the sizing, I am normally a size US 14 and sized up to an XL after reading reviews that complained the dress was too short (I’m 5’9.5″). The XL fits me perfectly all the way around. The white color looks so crisp in person and the racerback with the back cutout is gorgeous.
The OFFLINE by Aerie Nylon Pleated Exercise Dress is currently half-off. Aerie, if you see this: please bring it back in more colors! Please and thanks 🙂 Also… if you’re thinking about getting the Nike Zoom Air Fire sneakers…this is your sign to get them. They run true to size in my experience and although they’re stiff putting on/taking off, they’re really comfortable on your feet.
