An everyday, go anywhere dress that works most days for most occasions is always a great buy. Not too skimpy, not too casual but not too fussy, something you can dress up or down, wear from work to dinner, throw on for errands or to pick the kids up, and still look polished and pulled together.

But buying something new can be tricky right now. It’s August, and the temps will continue to rise. In no time, it will be September and we’ll be transitioning to fall shades and Charlotte’s wonderful autumn weather. It can feel silly to buy something you won’t want to wear for another year once summer ends.

We shopped our local Charlotte boutiques for perfect, well-priced go-anywhere dresses that will work next week right through October. Whether you like dark colors or light, prefer pattern or solids, we’ve found something here to meet your style. Pair with sandals now, and with booties and a shirt or cardigan later.
