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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Zara Mixed Fabric Zipped Dress : A Star Trek zipper makes this option versatile: zip it down at night, and up again in the morning.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
