Last year, I traveled to the Caribbean a couple times. On both trips, the J. Crew sanur dress emerged as a favorite clothing item. This lightweight jersey dress is so versatile, easily converting from a midlength strapless dress to a short strapless dress and also a skirt. I wore it everywhere from an outdoor music festival to the beach bars (FYI: if you like to bar hop, the Huffington Post named my home island-St, Kitts-one of the best islands in the Caribbean for bar hoppers).
I have owned two sanur dresses, one in navy blue (confiscated by a family member who liked it as much as I did…ha!) and the other in grey. I purchased the navy dress last year in a J. Crew factory store ($29) and the grey one on eBay ($29). I believe the dress retails for $68 when in the main store.
Check out how the sanur dress holds up when I am off island.
