1 Dress, 3 Ways: Wear This Piece to Work, Weddings, and Power Lunches

July 14, 2015

We’ve all been there: You stumble across a gorgeous dress (or shirt, or jumpsuit) and you think, “I want to wear that—but how? When? Where?”

Then you start to get overwhelmed. Then you get a text. Then you get hungry. And then you walk away—the promise of the beautiful dress/shirt/jumpsuit unfulfilled.

Don’t let that happen with the Eleanor—one of our favorite dresses of the season. Below, we’ve mapped out exactly how you should be wearing this look at work and beyond.

The office…


We don’t really believe in contradictions. As far as we’re concerned, pretty and powerful have never been mutually exclusive. Get down to business in this elegant look. Dress: MM.LaFleur. Jacket: MM.LaFleur. Shoes: Ferragamo. Bag: Mansur Gavriel. Earrings: MM.LaFleur.

The summer wedding…



No, you shouldn’t upstage the bride. Yes, you should look as chic as humanly possible without stealing (too much of) the spotlight. This look strikes the perfect balance. Dress: MM.LaFleur. Sunglasses: Céline. Clutch: Victoria Beckham. Earrings: MM.LaFleur. Lipstick: YSL.

The power brunch…


Sometimes you want to roll up to brunch in denim cut-offs and shove your face into a pile of pancakes—and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. But on days when you want to turn things up, this look is your answer. Dress: MM.LaFleur. Hat: Eugenia Kim. Earrings: MM.LaFleur. Shoes: Loeffler Randall. Nail polish: Tenoverten.
