10th Commandment: May 19
May 19, 2014
I love dresses. I could live my entire life in dresses. (Though I’m still trying to learn to get in and out of my Jeep in a dress while still looking like a lady.) So I thought this week, I would post some under-$125 dresses for work and play.
This black dress is sublime. It’s more for casual days, because it dips down in the back, but depending on your office, you might be able to wear it to work. I love to wear it with flat sandals and a long necklace. I also wore it to dinner last week with an embellished belt and high-heeled sandals.
Banana also makes a jersey dress in a fit-and-flare style that looks very versatile. If the half-sleeve isn’t your favorite length, I like this H&M jersey sheath dress. I also found this Boden sheath dress with a geometric appliqué on the front.
For a more casual dress, I love this twist front dress from Three Dots. Velvet makes a simple t-shirt dress that I own in a couple of colors, it’s incredibly comfortable. If you’d like a maxi dress, try this short sleeve maxi from Splendid.
Plus-size: This Asos Curve midi-dress is a great piece, as is this Eileen Fisher 3/4 sleeve dress. It costs a bit more, but it’s a staple piece. Petite or Tall: Try this Boden Lana dress for work, or the Banana t-shirt dress above.
