Best Bet: Solid Gold Dot Knit Dress

With Thanksgiving approaching, holiday sample sale season is upon us. This week, the markdowns extend to Built by Wendy, where fall collection styles are 30 to 70 percent off. Knit from cozy wool with a bit of stretch, the Solid Gold Dot sweater-dress is a comfortable, easy-to-style basic. The gold polka dots let you embrace fall’s spotted trend, but the cut of the dress makes it versatile enough to be worn to work.

Solid Gold Dot knit dress, $137.50 (originally $275) at Built by Wendy or online.
