In Dr. Seuss’s “The Lorax,” the Once-ler says a thneed — which is a knitted garment that can be used as anything from a shirt to a sock to a pillow to a hat — is “a-fine-something-that-all-people-need.” As convenient and practical as the Truffula Tree-made piece would be in the real world, I have unfortunately yet to find something with the same variety of use.

With dresses over pants making a comeback, this piece is perfect for testing those nostalgic 2010-reminiscent waters. It can transition from an office outfit with a button-down layered underneath to a cocktail party evening ensemble.
With such endless outfit possibilities and its effortlessly chic appearance, there’s no reason not to invest in the latest iteration of the beloved thneed.
Saint Art Emory Convertible Pinstripe Dress, $210 (from $310), available here (sizes XS-XL).
