If you keep having those "I have nothing to wear" moments every single morning, let us introduce you to the one item that might make getting dressed a little easier: Instead of printed statement pieces, the one item you can lean on in times like these is a plain midi dress. It's smart enough for work, and it will slot into your weekend wardrobe, too, if you pair it with trainers or flats and a casual jacket.
Opting for a block colour also makes it easy to layer up if you need—so a sleeveless or slip style can work all year round, not to mention a quick way of reinventing a staple piece. Luckily, there's no shortage of hardworking midis around right now, whether you have a Moda Operandi or a Zara budget. And the good news is that these will slot into any wardrobe whatever your style.
