You prefer to spend your days in an old pair of Umbros. Alas, sometimes societal norms call for grown-up clothes (or something other than athletic gear). So pull a fast one in a Sophia Reyes dress.
The Parsons-schooled Chicagoan casually drapes jewel-toned silks and vintagey floral cottons into very comfortable, flattering silhouettes (in sizes XS-XL). Thanks to girly accents like flutter sleeves and strategic ruffles, you can look like a lady without any unpleasant cinching or restricting.
Between the origami-inspired Teah and the sailor-style, cap-sleeve Petal (both are around $250), we can’t pick a favorite. They’re all made in the good ol’ USA, so you can bet they’ll last longer than your favorite sweats.
Available at Mulberry & Me, 2019 West Division Street, at Damen Avenue (773-952-7551); Tangerine, 1719 North Damen Avenue, at Wabansia Avenue (773-772-0505); Tula, 3738 North Southport Avenue, between Grace Street and Waveland Avenue (773-549-2876); online at sophiareyes.com.
