D.C. women are busy: from politicking on Capitol Hill to kicking back in Adams Morgan, we want to look effortlessly stylish and put together from wake up call to last call. So our go-to fall wardrobe staple is the one-piece: wrap dresses, shirt dresses, and for the not-so-conservative set, mod jumpers. This versatile look is everywhere from staid K Street offices to hip U Street bars. It’s easy to understand the appeal – a dress can be both trendy and timeless not to mention time-saving and travel friendly. This season dresses are showing up all over the District in various styles and materials (hello, corduroy). It’s easy to make the one piece your fall uniform without, well, looking like you’re wearing a uniform. Find great dress ideas in our “Dress Dictionary.”
