Mango makes a lot of cute dresses, but it rarely cuts them longer than mid-thigh. So it’s such a joy to find a dress that can be worn to work that’s still fashionable. The slit is sultry, but not to much, and the pleating at the neckline is the kind of little detail that lifts a dress.
If you like combo dresses, Shoshanna and Alice + Olivia offer fun tweed pairings that are both on sale. This dress from Dillard’s looks a bit like Black Halo for under-$75, and it comes in plus sizes. This dress from Max & Cleo has a chic and crisp draped top with long sleeves. And if you want to try the combo dress for cocktail, Badgley Mischka offers an ivory chiffon top with a black pailette skirt.
