So it's a Wednesday night and you've got plans. The problem: You also have to work on Thursday. Ergh. Is it possible to prepare for a potentially spontaneous night without a lot of awkward baggage? Nobody really wants to carry around an extra toothbrush, much less an entire daytime look. For those fellow Type A's who've tuned in, I propose five dresses that look just as good at your desk as they did the night before.
Tanya Taylor Multi Textured Stripe Proper Dress : The coiled stripes around this form-fitting number make it slinky on its own, but come morning, throw on a sweater for a professional look—the dress becomes an instant pencil skirt alternative.
Zero + Maria Cornejo Lee Dress : Competing admirably for the title of Most Elegant Bathrobe Ever without actually being a bathrobe, and exactly what you'll want to wear after the night you just had. If anyone finds the actual bathrobe version, let me know—I want one.
Zara Mixed Fabric Zipped Dress : A Star Trek zipper makes this option versatile: zip it down at night, and up again in the morning.
ASOS Shift Dress with Sporty Trim and Pleated Skirt : Side pleats, an athletic neckline, and that all-around spiked OJ color give this shift an update.
Bella Freud Three-Way Color Block Dress : Long live the sweater dress. Cozy enough that you may as well sleep in it too—a true 24-hour solution.
