Editor's Pick: 5 Day-to-Night Dresses
With many of us having schedules that require going to activities or events directly from work at least once a week - if not more - it’s becoming increasingly important to have a variety of day-to-night dresses in our wardrobe. In addition to being chic, these dresses need to be comfortable and stay smooth, without wrinkling, so you won’t mind wearing them all day and into the evening.
The Connected Apparel editors have selected 5 dresses that work perfectly for different day-to-night occasions. These dresses are great to wear to work, but aren’t overly business-y, making them ideal for seamlessly transitioning to night.
