Whether you’re heading to the office, weekend brunch or preparing to dance the night away – here's three failsafe looks to suit every brief.
On first glance, A.L.C.’s midi dress looks like separates — ticking off the animal-print trend and fashion's continual obsession with pleated, calf-grazing skirts. Put the two together and you have a winning look that strikes the perfect balance of smart and sophisticated. Wear it with mules now and a color-pop tote, switching to heeled boots once the temperature drops.
From picnics in the park to a chic brunch date with friends or your plus one, this pretty mini dress is an effortless choice for so many occasions. We love the subtle nod to this season's ruffle trend on the collar, and the rich color palette is perfect for making a smooth transition into fall. Team with espadrilles or sneakers depending on your mood — it'll look great with a bold lipstick and heels after dark, too.
Be it date night, a friend’s birthday or just an excuse to shake off the week — this Jonathan Simkhai number is the ultimate choice. Cut from satin in a pretty cherry-blossom hue, this ruched dress highlights the designer's mastery of flattering the female form — note the nipped-in waist and elegant button fastenings through the front. Color match your lipstick and finish with vertiginous pumps — preferably in a statement print for maximum impact.
