Women's Short Sleeve Madras Trim Polo Dress
Originally purchased Navy petite but the color was uneven as if someone spilled extra navy dye by the chest area. The material seemed to be thinner than other polo styles. I returned it and exchanged for cherry...material is a bit thin as previously mention, but no dye problems.

I was disappointed that the material used seemed so much thinner & flimsier than previous polo dresses. Also, the little pocket detail that was previously on polo dresses went missing - a key & classy feature of the dress in my opinion. So although I liked the colour- apple green & the fit was fine, I returned it, figured I already have a dozen other better loved & higher quality polo dresses from Landsend.

I loved this dress, but the colors were too bold for me.

Great causal dresses with lots of colors. I purchased 5 of them and so glad I did. I bought the tall length cause I wanted it to hit below the knee which it does. I would recommend purchasing the tall length for anyone wanting it to hit lower than above the knee. The knit is super soft and silky with a little stretch that skims without clinging. Cute collar makes the dress stand out from other polo dresses. Can't wait to wear with a pair of their summer heeled sandals which will have to be my next purchase.

Thrilled LE Polo Dresses Now in Tall!
Like the reviewer from Boston, I also look forward to ordering the LE polo dresses each year because in hot and humid weather in Louisiana, they are my number one summer "uniform," whether I'm running errands or going to church or meeting friends for lunch. Great for substitute teaching too. Thrilled LE finally offers them in tall sizes because at 5'9 I can use the extra length. So many other polo dresses I've tried are very short on me. One caveat: I have found it's best to let them air dry as they sometimes shrink up in length if left in the dryer. Colors this year are beautiful. I ordered the malachite and the violet shades, and they are great. The violet shade is slightly more vivid than what I saw online; it's a brighter grapey type shade, than I expected but I will keep it. With these dresses, I know I'm covered (literally and figuratively) for all but the dressiest occasions, and I will be cool and comfortable no matter what the summer weather brings me.

This dress hung on me. It had no shape to it. It looked like I was wearing a night shirt.
The quality was good, but the dress did not look good on me. I sent both of my dresses back, and now I'm going to try the flared polo dress. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will like it.

My Spring and Summer Staple!
I honestly look forward to this time of year when LE starts bringing out the Polo dresses. Each year I pick up a few to replenish my "collection" and enjoy seeing what the difference will be on the dress.
This year it's the madras trim on the placket and the underside of the collar. Very cute and just the right touch!
I was hoping that they would offer the monogramming as they had last summer, but unfortunately not this time. I ordered the Bright Apple Green and the Cherry - I am pretty familiar with their colors and had a good idea as to what to expect - I had hoped the Cherry tone had a bit more red to it. However, it is more on the deeper pink side than on a red tone.
I order all in size small and have not deviated from that size - some years there is more shrinkage to the fabric than other years and even within the colors some hold their size while some shrink...overall though a small is a small and true to size.
I have had tremendous luck with these as a dress that carries me through the late Spring and Summer in New England. They are easy to wear and care for - look great all the time and are very versatile. I always feel appropriately dressed for pretty much every day of the week - barring a more formal occasion.
So if you like summer ease and looking put together without any effort at all and enjoying carefree life - then I would highly recommend these dresses. Easily dressed up or down with different shoes, belts, jewelry, cardigans etcetera.
Now all I need is Winter to stop being here - hmmm at least I can look at the dresses and dream of warmer days ahead....
