Sexing Up the Simple Frock: Tibi Takes the Office Dress to the Cocktail Lounge

by Rachel Yeomans | January 11th, 2010   

The fantastic online retailer, net-a-porter.com, recently featured a fantastic clearance, which is the only time throughout the year that I may be able to actually scroll through the site with an option to purchase clothing. During my perusal, I came across this Tibi dress that boasts a great neckline and a gorgeous color that is perfectly appropriate for work! Then I click on the thumbnail to see other views, and I discover that the back of the dress adds a great deal of va va voom to this seemingly simple frock.

As shown here with a perfectly work-appropriate cardigan, this dress wouldn’t turn many heads in the office except perhaps to say, “Wow great color!” or “That’s a great fit on you.” After the workday at the cocktail lounge – minus the cardigan – this dress would most assuredly draw some attention. I love the peek-a-boo detailing of this “work to evening” garb because even without the coverage of a cardigan or blazer, the number and thickness of the straps maintain the level of glamour the dress has from the front without toeing the line of being too sexy. And I’m sorry to say this ladies, post-clearance, this dress is now sold out…and I may or may not have contributed to that status of inventory.
