We've all been there. The after-hours rush to get ready. The guest who drops by unexpectedly. The impromptu girls' night out after a long day. Sometimes preparing for a sudden event seems more exhausting than exciting - and that can take all the exhilaration out of your fun plans, too.
To the rescue comes the necklace dress, which effortlessly dresses up your look and requires very little to no work on your part. This BCBGMAXAZRIA Necklace 2fer Dress ($76.04) offers an outstanding example of its versatility; it can be worn during the day with a cardigan, then shown in all of its glory at night.
It doesn't get easier or more well rounded than this. The Marc New York Double Knit Necklace Shift Dress ($89.99) goes from A to B with ease. Its crisp silhouette makes it perfect for office wear, and the six-layered chain necklace dresses it up just enough. Throw a blazer on top to keep it conservative.
Go for holiday-season chic with the Warehouse Embellished Neck Dress ($136.75). Traced with a striking bead design around the neckline, it successfully plays a luscious wine hue with a jolt of black. No further accessories needed!
At first glance, it looks like a plush cashmere sweater tucked into a high-waisted skirt, but this beauty is actually a dress! Wear the Oasis Embellished Neck Dress ($118.17) to everything from the office holiday party to afternoon tea at the Ritz.
