What to wear: the Dress for Any Occasion


Maggy Langdon dress, Furla bag, Celine Audrey sunglasses, Shanghai Tang bracelet, Essie “Material Girl” nail polish.

This dress wins the prize for the most versatile and least expensive piece in my work wardrobe. I’m traveling for work in Singapore and today I have a conference, an afternoon meeting, a cocktail reception and a dinner.

For the conference and meeting I’ll throw this jacket over the dress, then remove for cocktails and dinner. I’ll also swap out my big bag for this smaller Rebecca Minkoff purse for the evening.

Bonus for travel – the dress’ fabric doesn’t wrinkle. Trust me – I’ve tried! And the loose fit works beautifully in the humid heat of Singapore. What’s your go-to piece for busy days? More from my time in Singapore here and here
