I couldn’t help but get more than one Derek Lam for DesigNation dress from Kohl’s. I love the bold graphic stripes on this one and the high collar makes it office appropriate. I bought this dress a size larger than I usually wear because I liked the longer and looser fit. My tip (especially when it comes to inexpensive apparel) is to try on several sizes to get the fit you desire. A piece will often look more sophisticated when you size up.
