If you're a member of the style club that prefers splashing out on big-ticket accessories or outfits best suited to time spent off the clock rather than anything that could be labeled "workwear," we've got some easy picks to click, buy, and be done with. Even if professional, office-appropriate duds lack the glamour of sexy date-night dresses or the need-now quality of roomy cashmere sweaters or flimsy linen sundresses, they're a necessity. Stock your closet with practical picks that won't break the bank. Then proceed with saving up for your next handbag investment — no judgement here.

Don't think it's just the bride who has a big dress decision to worry over — guests do too! With invites and attire specifications that sometimes require hunkering down and figuring it out, it feels like missteps are just waiting to happen. With "casual" events a cinch to understand and "black-tie" typically pointing to a floor-sweeper, it's the gray area known as "cocktail attire" that can seem puzzling.
Our best advice? Avoid hemlines that go all the way to the ground, and pick luxe fabrics like satin, leather, and lace over something casual like cotton. If you'd imagine your frock working with casual flat sandals, then it might not be the best option. Oh — and avoid white.
Miranda Kerr popped up in NYC today showing off not one, but two stylish cap-sleeved dresses. The first was a sexy, pink Hervé Léger by Max Azria bandage dress, which she jazzed up with a pair of coral pumps. The second look, which she wore to a Gillette Venus appearance in Times Square, was of the daintier kind: a yellow, lace knee-length Reem Acra number with classic black pumps. With both ensembles, the model proved that there's a cap sleeve for everyone and Summer is the perfect time to find yours. Inspired by Miranda's ensembles, we set out to find the best cap-sleeved dresses on the market. Shop them below.
