I’m so damn tired of wearing jeans, but it’s what the season—and my lifestyle—dictates. Soon enough, though, I’ll be getting myself back into dresses, and I’ve been looking around at a lot them. And while I do like a nice print or color, the ones I get the most wear out of are black, and so that’s what I tend to go back to. All of the following have grown-up hemlines—natch—but I have thrown in a few that are sleeveless, something I don’t usually do for you guys. Just think about pairing those with a nice light cashmere cardigan. This Vince shirtdress has excellent long sleeves, though, and looks like the soul of comfort.
This is one seriously flattering silhouette, and I love the neckline—so feminine.
A cute, well-priced ribbed jersey dress that’d be good for kicking around in.
The ruching this shirtdress is great, and I like that the buttons are off to the side.
The puff sleeves here are a nice touch, and I like the low back, too.
From plus-size brand Universal Standard: this is one very versatile-looking shirtdress.
This seems like a really good option for travel: it’s nice and simple and looks quite comfortable.
And I believe that this dress is both classic and stealthily quite sexy.
A little bit frillier than I usually go, but just so pretty.
Another super-easy option.
I like the uneven hemline on this cocoon dress.
