Fabulous and timeless
I'm beyond thrilled with my purchase. It's an investment piece but I can think of some many occasions to wear this dress. I bought the hunter green dress, just a beautiful and flattering color. I got many compliments when I wore it. I'm usually a 2/4 but I sized up to a 6 which fits like a glove. The dress shows off my slim waist and slims my wider hips.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Wanted to love so badly -- not for me
I have been eyeing this dress for a long time and finally decided to go for it, despite the price tag. I got the blue -- it is gorgeous and I love the fabric and style. It's really sexy, but the length offsets the body-hugging fit -- and I'm 5'8, so not short -- so I still think it's good for work. Anyway, the reason it's 4 stars is because it just does not work on my body for some reason. It looks amazing everywhere but my hips, where it is just way too baggy, so I need to return it. :( That being said, it is an amazing dress if it fits you -- I can't fault it for my body; just be warned that it's not for everyone (but then again, what dress is?). I'm usually between a 2 and a 4 -- got the 4, which I think would've been a good call (since it looked great otherwise).

staple. must have.
This dress is an absolute instance classic. So sexy but in an appropriate, understated way. A little sexy for work BUT with a blazer is amazing. This dress does have sizing issues however, I am a true 2 and had to get a 0 in this dress because around the hips and natural waistline it gaps a bit. I am also an hourglass but maybe my hips are smaller than this dress is made for -- not sure but I am definitely in between sizes. The 0 is oh so tight but hot (just have to work on having perfect posture 24/7 while wearing and it's not exactly east to move in but at least it looks good- going up a size to the 2 is just out of the question because of how it awkwardly gaps-- better to be a little too tight but hot than awkward and big.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

gorgeous dress
This dress is just lovely. I'm 5'10" and 130 pounds, and a 6 fit perfectly. 4 was a bit tight and therefore not work-appropriate. Color (cobalt) is beautiful, and I get multiple compliments each time I wear this dress.

Gorgeous!
This dress is a classic, I already have one in white and can't resist getting this in cobalt. The color pops and fits perfectly.

a very classic piece
i actually thought the sizing is larger than expected. i am usually a 4 but took a 2 because the red was out of 4s. and it fits! i love pencil dresses and i do not regret adding this to my collection. but i kind of think the dress is too long, unless you are as tall as the model is. and the belt definitely looks cheap. overall, worth the buy!

beautiful dress!
i bought the red in size 6 as 4 was out of stock and is a little big and long for my 5'3 height. I measure 34A-27-37 so i believe the size 4 would have fitted better. The dress is very classy and absolutely love the material that i decided to keep the dress and have it altered and shortened.

Can't go wrong with Jackie dresses
If you don't have a black halo Jackie O dress then find one in a color that suits you and you will not be disappointed!! Took off one star because at 5'1 I have to get these rather long dresses hemmed, but the fit is elegant and timeless. I weigh about 110 lbs , bought the size 2 and it fits perfect, but I have broad shoulders otherwise a 0 might've worked.

Beautiful Dress
Did as other reviews recommended and sized up one size. Definitely for the girls with curves, but you wont be disappointed. I am 5'2 and found this mid calf! Will need to be hemmed at least 10cm.

super chic work-appropriate dress
Black Halo dresses tend to run tight and this is no exception - size up if you want it to skim, rather than saran-wrap, your body. Loved the draped neckline and overall style. It's super long so for shorter girls, plan to take it to a tailor.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

flawless
Elegantly crafted, beautiful dress. It's immensely professional, and yet feminine, classy, creative and stunning. I've worn it once and I got many compliments, a lot of them from strangers stopping me and telling me they loved my dress.

Beautiful dress!
I'm short so I will have to get it hemmed up but the cut / tailoring of the dress is otherwise perfect. Bought it in the dark blue and will be able to wear it to work or out. Super excited about Black Halo - I have a total of four of them now!
