When you find a dress that is both clean and polished enough for daytime wear but can also be played up with a little more flare for a night out, it’s like hitting the fashion jackpot. Wearing it is really as easy as 1,2,3 – you have your dress, a key accessory for day and something standout for night (which can easily be thrown into your bag or the back of the car until it’s needed). Here are three LT dresses and their simple formulas for staying stylish on the go:
From Lunch Meetings to Rooftop Cocktails: This solid blue mock wrap really speaks for itself, so you can keep the rest simple. For midday meetings, do a comfortable, low-heeled wedge in a fun pattern (like python!). Since the v-neck style draws all of the attention up to your face, a sleek ponytail and gorgeous, dangle earrings are all you need to add in order to stun at cocktail hour.
From Brunch with the BFF to a Saturday Night Party: When your bestie’s all for a marathon weekend, proper outfit changes aren’t exactly factored into the schedule. This lace shift dress is laid back enough for brunch when you top it off with a cool hat. And if she wants you to tag along to a party later that night, throw on a braided belt to complete the look.
From the Corporate 9-5 to a Fancy Dinner Date: You’re a high-powered woman who always needs to look pulled together but never seems to find the time to do so. This mesh and jersey shutter is conservative enough for the office when paired with a sleek, black blazer. As dusk falls, drop the jacket, show off those curves and slap on a statement watch for a dash of color. Et voila!
