The Market Dress: Your Go-To Style This Year

shop market dresses with mata traders

If you've added any dressy items to your closet over the last year, you've likely added twice as many items you could label "comfortable." With Zoom calls demanding little effort on the fashion front you might wonder, what's the point in stocking up on styles to be seen in? If you're looking to spend your entire day in clothes that are comfortable enough to live in, but also want to step out in something that inspires more confidence than your worn out PJs, we have a solution for you.

The "Market Dress"

Consider it a companion to athleisure, the workout wear with a fashionable edge. A market dress is the ultimate solution for your desire to look presentable while also, say, lying on a couch. It's the frock for hitting up the farmer's market after a several-hour Netflix binge, without having to think twice about changing your clothes. It's the dress you throw on for those stay-at-home days that require just a single public appearance. While you might care to look decent, comfort is most important.

Lucky for you, we have plenty of options to fill your market dress needs.
