We all want to get good cost per wear from the pieces in our wardrobe and if you have watched my online workshop you will know how much importance I place on a versatile wardrobe. For this post I am using an old shift dress from Eileen Fisher, I have in my wardrobe. But I have given alternative options including a navy dress if you don't like or want to wear black.
To be really versatile I would suggest a simple style with a short or 3/4 length sleeve that you can layer under and over. A mid weight fabric such as crepe or viscose will work day and night.
By using accessories cleverly no-one will think it is the same dress you are wearing again.
Outfit 1 is for the Office.
For an office look I have added an open front jacket, silk scarf and quilted handbag with heeled boots.
