The dress is the Vienna Belted Midi Dress by Reiss in a deep berry shade I think we can all agree we need in our lives more often. The crepe dress has a cowl neckline and a smart D-ring belt to pull you in at the waist and give the dress a defined, but still flowing shape. Of course, I decided to go rogue and ditch the belt it comes with in lieu of my own, but just know, you’ve got options. It’s on sale for an absolute steal right now and I love this dress specifically for professional purposes. It’s got style and polish in equal measure, meaning there would rarely be a business meeting where it wouldn’t work.
While the dress itself is a genius professional move, I’d be remiss if I didn’t devote words to this fabulous COAT. Also by Reiss, the longline wool coat is a closet staple all winter long. You should never have to make a choice between being warm and being professional, and this coat ensures you don’t have to. I’m also a huge fan of outerwear with a bit of color to it. Color helps prevent winter wardrobe boredom almost effortlessly, and this deep berry shade is incredibly wearable because it looks great with blacks, browns, blues—everything. When I’ve spoken about smart investment pieces in the past, this is what I’ve been talking about. Buy confidently, take good care of it, and you’ll spend years wearing and loving this coat.
