When the temperatures soar, we reach for light, unfussy clothing and nothing is easier than putting on an easy-breezy dress in the a.m. Look instantly polished in one of these one-piece wonders, all under $100:
Always remember—you’re going to work…not going out on the town! The Michael Michael Kors Knit Drape-Neck Dress ($89.50 at Lord and Taylor) looks fab without being too revealing. The elegant draping and vibrant color do the whole sexy-meets-conservative trick. (It also comes in black for an even subtler look.)
Appearances can be deceiving. Marc New York’s Grey Woven Cotton Cap Sleeve Dress ($99 at BlueFly.com) might look like a separate skirt and top, but it’s really a light and airy dress. Wear it chic on its own or pair with a jacket, blazer or lightweight cardigan.
A pretty printed frock, like the Shifting Feathers Dress from Anthropologie ($98), is the perfect work-to-weekend style. Wear it during the week with pumps and a little cardigan, and on weekends with flat sandals.
A safari-inspired shirt dress is a great way to bring one of this season’s wildest trends to the office. Unleash your inner animal with Kate Hill’s Linen Belted Shirt Dress ($89.99 on sale at Lord and Taylor).
A sheath cut, like this ASOS Cross Hatch Linen Pencil Dress ($54.11), will never go out of style. Add a belt or a jacket to change the look and you’ll use this dress season after season.
