Like many a New Yorker, I'm short on closet space. And the last things I'd like to fill my closet with are party dresses that I only take out once or twice a year.
With that in mind, I went out this weekend in search of an easy summer party dress: Something anonymous and versatile enough to be dressed up or down depending on the formality of the occasion, but interesting in its own right.
My search began and ended at Club Monaco, where I found a navy A-line tank dress with a scoop neck, roomy pleated bodice and flattering handkerchief hem. It's the kind of dress I could wear to work with flat sandals and a little gold necklace, and out to a rooftop party with black stiletto sandals and a chunky Marni statement accessory. In other words, it was exactly what I was looking for. And the price was right.
Club Monaco Runi Dress, $269, available at Club Monaco.
