Being a fashion editor usually entails keeping up with, you know, fashion. Tracking down emerging designers, keeping tabs on waiting list–worthy products, and knowing the newest up-and-coming brands are just a few parts of my job. It's a lot of moving parts, but I love it.
Part of what comes with the territory is getting asked style-related questions by friends and family. My mom and sisters text me on at least a bi-monthly basis asking for advice on where to look for a specific piece (like a wedding guest dress or winter coat). While this may not sound all that exciting to you, my point is that I'm usually fielding a fair amount of questions on where to shop, so I decided to turn the latest friend's question into a story: where to shop for great daytime dresses.
Ahead, I've rounded up 20 versatile dresses that can be worn to the office or during the day on the weekend. They're nothing overtly splashy (no sequins in sight), but they're also nowhere near boring. To see what I mean, keep scrolling to snag the new daytime dresses you'll wear on repeat for months—and maybe even years—to come.
There are so many different ways to style this check dress. Layer a thin turtleneck underneath and pair with socks and loafers for the office. Going to dinner? Leave a few buttons undone and accessorize with architectural earrings and cool croc-effect boots.
