If eliminating the hassle and cost of dry cleaning is a priority for you, you’re in luck.

Once they’re part of your Monday-Friday rotation, you’ll see the value immediately.
Thanks to elegant, sculptural draping, this polished dress moves seamlessly from work to cocktails. It doesn’t read as machine washable, but it is—and that’s exactly why we love it.
Whether you chalk it up to the waist-flattering belt or the useful pockets, there’s a reason the Etsuko is the go-to dress of professionals from Capitol Hill to Silicon Valley.
A classic A-line, reinterpreted with genius design details: an artful neckline, extended shoulders, and flared skirt. Perfect for travelers who need a go-everywhere LBD.
With its structured shoulder, this power shift holds its own in a room full of suits—and it holds its shape, wash after wash.

This polished number is equal parts dignified and playful, thanks to clever tailoring that creates the illusion of a perfectly-tucked top.
The sharp neckline and tailored silhouette lend the Aditi an undeniable “Don’t mess with me” vibe.
This dress gets its cool factor from a wrap closure and cinched waist. But it gets its convenience factor from its machine-washability.
