One Dress, Five Ways
Put your wardrobe to work (and play). Here’s how to get the most mileage out of your closet by transforming one dress into five different looks.
Not many of us can afford a wardrobe the size of Mariah Carey’s, so the trick to make the most out the clothes we do have is to find pieces that can be dressed up or down. Here, we take one dress and show you how to create five fab looks.
One of the most versatile items a woman can own is a sheath dress in a neutral color. This dress by Ann Taylor Loft ($69.50, anntaylorloft.com) has been tailored to flatter all body types, and basic shades like this neutral grey provide an excellent foundation for you to add colors, layers and accessories.
Wear It For: Work
For an office-appropriate look, button a slim black blazer over this dress to show off the pencil skirt. Paired with black tights and heels, the outfit means business, but add your own panache by layering a functional accessory like a watch with an edgy chain bracelet.
