A stress-free transition from workday to party is the point of Acadine's multitasking sheath.

  • Monochromatic dressing—one shade, head to toe—is always flattering. "Anytime you chop up your body with color, it's not going to be good," says Dahlman.
  • Luscious charmeuse fabric makes it dressy; interestingly textured python accessories steer it in a casual direction—and you can always add a jacket for the office.
  • Such a classic shape would look just as good with lower shoes.
