There are those certain frocks that make a statement. You know, the ones you strategically decide to wear for taking full advantage of the professional photographer. (Hey, selfies don’t always cut it.) The harsh reality is that those beautiful numbers usually end up in the back of your closet, never to be seen again. Don’t let your cocktail attire become a ghost of dresses past. Instead, find one that works for weddings, work, nights out and everything in between.
The dramatic neckline is great for formal wear, but the unassuming color and midi length make it suitable for work (especially when tucked under a leather jacket or blazer).
Quickly jazzed up with contrasting statement earrings or dressed down with pointed flats.
Sure, it’s a lot of pattern. But the playful colors work well beyond weddings. Think: Bridal showers, baby showers and graduation brunches alike.
The flared hem is right on trend for summer, but the deep hue will transition well into winter.
If you have a wedding in Capri, you need this dress. Ditto if you’re in New Jersey and just want to pretend like you’re vacationing in Capri every weekend.
LAYERED HIGH-LOW DRESS
The flirty layers will keep things breezy on a sweaty dance floor or a subway platform.
Attention-grabbing scallops and a simple silhouette make this a cotton number a win-win.
