The Ibex Isabella dress is a strong addition to the outdoor woman’s Little Black Mountain Dress collection. It’s made of soft, cozy 100% Merino wool jersey knit with a built-in bra layer and a comfortable casual fit. The dress features a v-neck, an empire-style waistline, and crisscross straps in the back. It sits just above the knee (depending on your height) and has a consistent stretch and fit throughout with no areas that restrict movement.
The Isabella is a perfect combination of sleek and sporty. As a lifestyle dress, it pairs just as well with a flannel shirt and Chucks as it does with a dressy cardigan and high heels. The sway of the fabric means it moves effortlessly as you do without any clinging and the Merino jersey knit keeps it from wrinkling even if it’s balled up in your knapsack. The built-in bra layer provides light support without chafing your ribcage, and the v-neckline and crisscross straps in the back provide a flattering look for any frame. Throw it on over yoga shorts, a swimsuit, or a sports bra and no one will be the wiser. Because the dress is wool, it doesn’t shine as a running or training dress, but as a “to-and-from” piece, it’s hard to beat.
While the Isabella isn’t the ideal dress for climbing peaks, it’s your new secret weapon for transitioning from a training run on the trails to a night out on the town. If you’re looking for a new little black dress but can’t bring yourself to buy something that might require an iron at some point, pick up the Isabella and you’ll never look back.
