The Macy’s Friends and Family sale, which discounts brands that rarely go on sale, ends in a few days. Use code FRIEND to get 25% off until the 10th.

Macy’s is generally a good source for dresses across petite, regular and plus sizes, and their online selection is particularly good. Chances are low you’ll find the most fashion-forward frock in their dress department, but you will find a whole slew of flop proof and flattering modern classics in machine washable fabrications and at reasonable prices. Here’s an assortment of what I call a “no-nonsense dress”. Easy to wear, comfortable and unfussy. Browse through all the colours and read the rave reviews.
