Today’s Coveted Working Look: Banana Republic Diamond Dress

Imagine: it’s the middle of the week, Wednesday at 6:00 a.m., to be exact. You’re standing in front of your closet, staring listlessly at the rows of clothes in front of you. All of the items have excited you at some point or another, but this morning, nothing looks appealing. It’s going to be a hot one, and you’re worried about the commute to and from work – not to mention the arctic breeze that is your office’s air conditioning.

Now imagine this: a solution! Banana Republic’s BR Monogram Diamond Dress, to be exact.

Banana Republic’s Diamond Dress is the perfect example of clothes that can refresh your wardrobe in a seemingly effortless way. Sure, the dress looks simple (and yes, it actually is deceptively simple!), but the beauty of it is that this lovely sheath can be worn in just about a thousand different ways. Staring at your closet with nothing to wear on a hot summer workday? Toss on this sheath to stay cool, brighten it up with some accessories (I love the corals, as styled above, but mint green and aqua blues would also look lovely), and tuck your favorite cardigan in your bag to fight off the inevitable office air conditioning. In the fall? Pair the Diamond Dress with your favorite knee-high boots for an elegant, equestrian transition into cooler weather.

Trust me, when you fill out your wardrobe with versatile pieces like the Diamond Dress, you’ll find yourself reaching for them again and again, no matter the season or your mood!

And for the cherry on top of this fashionable cake, the clever color-blocking on this dress will whittle your waistline and make you feel (and look) like a million bucks. You really can’t get much better than that.

Are you lusting after Banana Republic’s Diamond Dress as much as I am? I might have to run out and get it this week!
