It’s always a smart strategy to have a current go-to dress in your seasonal arsenal. Something that captures the spirit of the moment but is not so out there that you’ll have to retire it after one season. A good dress can take you to work, to dinner and to parties depending on how you accessorize. Dresses have saved me from outfit angst on more than a few occasions. Here are three options: splurge, invest, and grab.
I have loved this Bottega Veneta dress since it hit the runway back in February. Vogue and Bazaar must like it as well; both featured it in their August issues. It’s of the moment with pleats and pointelle and the bra worn on top gives it edge. Available at saksfifthavenue.com
This is a LBD you will never tire of or retire, a great investment piece. Depending on your accessories it can go to work or full out evening.
I’ve been looking for this dress for a season or two now. A soft dress with a 70’s vibe feels right and this strikes the perfect balance. It would look great with a knee high boot from yesterday’s post or a strappy platform. If you really want to go for it add a printed head scarf. You can have a lot of fun with this dress.
