If the return of Uggs was hard for you to swallow, you might want to brace yourself for the latest early-2000s revival: Batwing sleeves are back, but thankfully, they're infinitely more tasteful than they were a decade ago. Not convinced? Allow this customer-loved sweater dress to turn you into a believer.
The Zesica Batwing Sleeve Sweater Dress is one of this week's most-loved styles on Amazon. Despite the design of its sleeves, it's nothing like the alarming batwing tops you once wore with low-rise jeans and gauchos. Instead, it provides a refreshing new take on the trend. The soft knit material makes the billowing sleeves look impossibly cozy, and they're perfectly complemented by a backless, wrap-style bodice.
Hundreds of shoppers have fallen for the sweater dress, citing its stretchy, figure-hugging fit and under-$40 price as major selling points.
"Why does this dress not have more reviews? It's amazing," one reviewer wrote. "Such great quality. Thick sweater material hugs in all the right places… I want to buy all the colors!"
Another customer called the Zesica dress the perfect "showstopper" for a winter night out, mentioning that it's thick and warm without being bulky: "Paired the dress with knee-high nude boots and got so many compliments! Perfect for a date night or just because you want to dress up a little bit. Going to order it in more colors — perfect dress for wintertime!"
