Every week at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase that won’t take up your whole paycheck. If you’re looking for a splurge instead, check back every Friday for one great purchase that’s worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity.
Slip dresses are a heat-hater’s best friend. This one is so striking on its own that you don’t need to accessorize it, though it would layer equally well with a jean jacket, blazer, or bomber. If you’re feeling especially ’90s, add a white tee underneath, or pile on some chokers. Finish it off with sneakers or stilettos — you can’t go wrong.
Dress, $70 at Zara
