I love this idea, and I love Tim Gunn, my best imaginary shopping friend ever. I am not 100% sure what a Day Dress is, in real everyday life. For work-wear, I imagine a simple dress, probably knit, easy to pull on and style. An effortless alternative to trousers for the office.
For example, today I wore this to work (I wore it during the day, so it a Day Dress):
|Knit Dress: Kenneth Cole Reaction, Layering tee: Gap, Faux Pearls: Consignment,|
Shoes: White Mountain
For off-duty hours, a Day Dress would have more leeway. This season, I think a maxi dress will do nicely, if it has a little bit of cover up-top. Being a stripe-aholic, I like this one:
|Knit maxi dress from Nordstroms|
I also like this simple dress by Land's End. While not dressy enough for most offices, it looks feminine and cool for hot, humid days:
|Cotton Voile Dress from Land's End|
I don't love a shirtdress on me, but this casual number probably qualifies for Tim's Day Dress:
What say you? Would you reach for a Day Dress instead of jeans, shorts or a summer skirt? Do you want to have lunch with Tim and me??
