What: Nicole Miller
Why: Whether we like it or not, the time has come when a lot of us will have to attend one or two or ten weddings. And dress shopping can be stressful even when you’re not the one walking down the aisleâ€”especially when you know youâ€™ll be running into those certain â€œfriendsâ€ you MUST impress. This elegant silk Nicole Miller dress fulfills all the key requirements:
1. The dark khaki and purple are perfect for spring and manage to avoid Easter egg pastels.
2. The Empire waist is flattering for those of us heavier on the bottom and gives the illusion of height.
3. Itâ€™s an eye-catcher without being too loud, too trashy, or too distracting.
4. You now get to buy that hot pair of metallic sandals like rsvp’s strappy Venice heels from Zappos.com. Definitely impressive.
Price: Dress, $375; sandals, $89.95 and free shipping
