Think about the most fun dress you've ever worn. It was probably something fancy for a nighttime event. New York Fashion Week begs the question, why reserve your fanciest frocks just for p.m. hours?

Puff-Sleeve Dress + White Boots + Tote

This dress is proof that strong shoulders are no longer stuck in the '80s. A pair of sturdy boots and a bag that holds much more than a cell phone makes it feel more appropriate for daytime, so rock it at whatever time you so please.
