For this edition of Dress Code (see previous posts here and here), we are featuring two looks each and showing how we would transition one piece from a day of shopping/hanging with girlfriends to a night out on the town. (Kate & Katie are skipping this month but will be back with us in August!) Take a peek at the other girls’ looks here: Lynzy & Danielle…and be sure to let us know what occasions you’d like to see us cover in future posts!
When planning the day look, my number 1 rule is dressing for comfort – that means flat shoes and light layers (since the air conditioning in most stores/malls can make it quite chilly). And for my night out look, I also want something that is easy to move in & doesn’t feel restricting, but still looks polished.
After much debating & rummaging through my closet, I decided a knit sheath dress was the perfect solution for both…since it is lightweight, super-comfortable and flattering (I found mine on major clearance & plan on taking it to the tailors for a few alterations so it will fit better). You can use this same styling idea with any shift dress you own – sleeveless, printed, etc. All you have to bring along with you is a change of shoes, statement jewelry & a clutch and you’re ready to go!
