Desk-to-Dinner Style: the Shift Dress & the Slouch Pant

It seems like we’re always singing the praises of a multitasking wardrobe, but it’s hard to ignore how certain indispensible pieces can radically streamline your busy lifestyle. And not to mention, they just make more budget sense! Who doesn’t like getting more bang for their buck?

We believe in investing in pieces that seamlessly go from office-appropriate to “I’m ready for a cocktail” just by swapping out a couple of elements. Two such pieces are the flattering shift dress and the comfy-yet-chic slouchy black pant. Both can easily be toned down for work or dressed up for a night out!
