The piece: Gap black oxford fit-and-flare dress
The price: $70
Why we want it: There was a reason we wanted Kate Middleton to snag this fit-and-flare dress that time she went shopping at Gap — it's just that good. From the volume of the skirt to the sleeve length that extends just past the elbow, it's got a retro vibe that reminds us of the sort of simple dresses your grandmother might've made for herself on her own sewing machine.
And buying one for yourself might just be the smartest $70 you ever spend. With its reserved cut, it'd work for the office or any important meeting, but is basic enough to also work with simple flat sandals on a Spring weekend. And with sexy platform sandals? You guy will love.
