The dress every woman needs in her closet

Everyone needs a good dress in their closet. If you don’t have a dress that
fits like a glove;
always looks polished and timeless;
one you can dress up or down:
and count on to not reveal just how bloated you are…then this post is for you!

I present to you the perfect little plaid dress.

I love that it’s not your typical “Little black dress” but can be worn just like one. The shape is flattering, especially because it has a belt that cinches the waist which makes it look smaller (without the cardio) and Plaid as a color can be treated like a neutral, which is my favorite part about it.  This time around, I paired it with an oxford shoe to elevate the look but I can already see myself wearing it with a white sneaker in the summer or a stiletto for a dinner.

When I shot this look in Soho, my photographer and I were greeted by the cutest Dalmatian dog and couldn’t help ourselves but have a little fun candid shoot with this beauty. To both of our surprises, the May issue of Harpers Bazaar confirmed that Plaid dresses (and Dalmatians) are a do!

I am already looking for another plaid dress. Having two or three is not the worst thing, right?
I love these:
