What to Wear Right Now: Daphne Wilde

As we head into our third week of social distancing and working from home, you may be wondering how to look polished for all of your Zoom meetings and FaceTime cocktail hours without sacrificing comfort. I find that chic, but comfortable dresses are just the thing! It just so happens that I learned about a new brand last week from the talented photographer, Claiborne Swanson Frank who shot the maiden campaign for the the brand. Daphne Wilde was founded by Britt Wallach whose mission is “for women to look as stylish ‘off-duty’ as ‘on’-effortlessly and without sacrificing comfort”. Can you think of a more timely launch? I have been making a concerted effort during the weekdays to get up, shower, put on my make-up, and get dressed just as I did when I was able to leave the house to go to my office or for client meetings. We are lucky that we can still have some of those meetings remotely, so I want to ensure that I look professional. I also feel so much better when I have my face on and am actually dressed than I do on the weekends as of late when I have been living in workout pants and t-shirts. More than ever before, attitude is everything right now. I don’t know about you, but I feel so much better when I know that I look pulled together. In fact, as I sit here writing this, I am wearing one of my favorite, easy dresses in navy blue. It’s the kind of dress I can wear with nice jewelry and chic sandals for work or with my favorite hat and a pair of Birkenstocks on the weekend!

Daphne Wilde’s initial collection includes three dress silhouettes, each of which can be worn with or without a belt, in a range of four beautiful colors– Positano Green, Parisian Blue, Cotswolds Cream, and Sandhamn Red, available with or without fleece lining– genius!

    1. They are actually quite flattering on a range of sizes- i’ve seen people who are 5’2″ and a size 0 to someone who is 5’11’ and a size 16 wear them and look wonderful 🙂

    2. Margaret, you might be surprised! I find an a-line to be the most flattering silhouette and since these dresses can be worn loose (to hide everything!) or belted to accentuate one’s waist, I can see how they would be pretty flattering. Take good care!

  1. Lovely. But who cares what I wear right now. I’m (and most of us) in self isolation. I’ll keep it in mind for a time when we can all go out again.
