If you’re wearing a dress on a boat, the last thing you want is a gust of wind to sweep upward and…well, you get the picture. Columbia’s Greenway Tee jersey knit dress hugs the body just enough to stay put in breezy conditions without being too revealing. The four-way stretch fabric feels cozy, while the Greenway Tee's scoop neck flatters all body types. Fitted lines hug the waist in all the right places, drawing attention away from any awkward lumps that swimsuit straps might create.

Buyer Beware: The Greenway Tee’s jersey stretch fabric doesn’t have a quick-dry feature. Avoid splashing waves, or you’ll be wet longer than normal.
