As part of American Living for JCPenney’s “Made For” campaign, we were asked to create an outfit “Made For” a specific moment of our day. Like most women, we wear many hats, so wearing clothes that “do it all” is essential. Our clothes need to be stylish, comfortable and versatile enough to take us from morning to night and everywhere in between as we get our kids ready for school, head out for a business meeting, run errands and sometimes attend an evening work event or social gathering.

As you’ll see in the video, we consider a dress to be our wardrobe’s MVP (most versatile piece) - it’s the quickest way to get dressed in the morning, looks instantly polished, and can be dressed up or down with accessories and layering pieces. Check out the video above to see how our American Living dresses help us “do it all” throughout the day.

Now, here’s the fun part… we want you to share with us your “Made For” moment and select a piece from the American Living collection that you would wear for your moment in the comments section below. We’ll select our favorite comment to WIN a $250 gift card from JCPenney! You’ll also be entered to win the grand prize of a $1500 JCPenney gift card! The deadline for entries is 11:59 EST on July 31, 2010. (check out the official rules)

The video series is sponsored by JCPenney and produced by Style Coalition. Check out our YouTube channel to see all the Made For moments in the video series.

Its standout style is accented by large brass buttons and looped frog closure. It’s also great for those rare summer days when a light breeze comes up!

RACHEL Rachel Roy Sunburst Infinity Loop ScarfFresh, breezy colors accent this eye-catching loop scarf, a piece that instantly adds a focal point to a plain white T-shirt or a solid colored dress.
