We’ve been contemplating the idea of a uniform. These little black dresses just might do the trick.
There’s much to love about Eliza J’s floral ruffled midi dress. It’s simple, sophisticated, comfortable, and adaptable. Pick your favorite shoes. Crisp white sneakers? Leather loafers? Heeled ankle boots? Sparkly party heels? They all work. Available at nordstrom.com, $148.
Theory’s “Nilimary” dress has a stretchy fabric that skims your body but allows it to move. Flats and a duster take it through the day; tiered layers over sparkly heels satisfy for an evening celebration. Available at net-a-porter.com, $415.
The barely there slip dress isn’t only for supermodels. Eileen Fisher’s camisole dress slides over a T-shirt, turtleneck, or button-up for an easy, on-trend look. Skip the undershirt and throw on a kimono and a pair of heels for evening. Available at saksfifthavenue.com, $248.
Keep Equipment’s slouchy “Booker” sweater dress casual with smart sneakers or dress it up sultry with fishnet stockings and tall boots. Available at shopbop.com, $348.
A pretty floral frock is a no-brainer for daytime, but it’s just as good later on. We’ll pair Ganni’s tie-waist frock with strappy sandals or ankle boots and big hoop earrings. Available at farfetch.com, $204.
We want to be wrapped in this slinky Norma Kamali for FWRD dress around the clock. Its silky fabric, flattering fit, and stay-put Velcro closure make it comfortably stylish morning to midnight. Available at fwrd.com, $265.
Polo Ralph Lauren’s ruffles, peek-a-boo crochet, long sleeves, and high neckline keep you covered in day and summon intrigue at night. Available at mytheresa.com, $598.
We can’t think of an occasion when Mara Hoffman’s “Joss” knit dress wouldn’t be apropos. Available at anthropologie.com, $525.
