I love dresses like this printed shift from LOFT for fall and winter. Days when it's 60, I can wear with bare legs and maybe some tall boots. Gets colder, add tights. When the temps really drop, the loose style means I can layer – a slip, a turtleneck, a leather jacket over it, fleece tights, tall boots… it all works (and heck, may all be worn at the same time!). I can dress up with pumps and a red lip, dress down with a denim jacket and my harness boots. All this and machine washable and it goes with black and brown accessories. I decided to go with regular instead of petite so it's a work-friendly length; the dress has a lot of volume so if unsure size down.
And if you're shopping at LOFT today, they have an additional 40% off all sale merch, plus 40% off tops, sweaters, and sweater dresses (no code needed). If I didn't already own my striped sweater with the bird applique, I'd pick up this one with a sequined peacock. I bought their Refined Sweater last year and while I gave it a meh review, I found I wore it like crazy last winter and have been wearing it again this year. I have a soft teal melange which isn't available this year but they do have some great jewel tones, a wine color, and nice neutrals as options. And do check out their sweater dresses, they have a lot of flattering silhouettes and it's always nice when a trend is also practical. We're getting to the bundling up season, and sweater dresses are a way to stay warm and still look stylish and professional!
