Mango Fitted Dress ($79)

This week, the posts focused on my wardrobe staples.  No item rotates more frequently through my closet than comfortable dresses.    I want a sheath or shift style, a fabric that feels good, and a look that can go from work to casual to dinner with ease.  This Mango dress has everything that I’m looking for in a frock.

Looking for something that fits into the work box?  This black dress from Gilt has the fit and function that I love for $129.  NYDJ has a long-sleeve sheath in a mix of black and navy.  This DKNYC dress has a cool ruched detail and an asymmetric hem.

If you need something in the under-$100 category, this Brigitte Bailey dress comes in four fabulous colors.  This charcoal Kenneth Cole dress is also a great choice.

My final recommendation is this dress from Athleta.  It comes in three colors (I love the purple), and every size range–misses, petite, tall, and plus.

    Just a warning- while the Brigitte Bailey dress feels really nice and is a good basic, it’s a LOT shorter than it looks on the model. I was hoping for it to double as a casual dress and a work dress with a blazer, but it’s definitely too short. I’m 5’6″ for reference.

  2. The Kenneth Cole option is fab. I’m picturing it with some colored tights to keep it bright.

    I pretty much live in dresses like this during the winter.

    Dresses like this are my winter uniform. For cheap people like me, Old Navy has a bunch of similar dresses, as well as fit and flare styles and fit and flare dresses, in the under $50 point for regular, petite, and plus sizes.
