Dresses For Work

Similar dress options (here, herehere & here) / similar studded booties (here & here)

As much as I’m a casual jeans kinda girl when it comes to work outfits a modest dress is always a good option.  I sometimes have to attend Court so this type of dress is what I often opt for. It was warm on the day I wore this but soon I’ll be wearing it with opaque tights and OTK boots.

This was yet another lucky find at Winners (T.J. Maxx in the USA) but I’ve seen many great options in stores and online.  A work “appropriate” dress is definitely an essential in my closet.  I try to go with a dress that has a bold pattern or some other cute details like the lantern sleeves on mine.   I’m not much a sheath dress girl for everyday looks so a more flowy style is usually my go to.

I do struggle with the word “appropriate” when it comes to fashion because I think you should stay true to your personal style.  However as a working professional sometimes going simple and classic is what is needed.  You can always add bold accessories to keep it fun.

These are a few dresses I picked because not only are they perfect for work they can also be used for a night out:

1. midi dress / 2. fit & flare / 3. Dark florals / 4. shift dress / 5. tweed sheath with fringe / 6. floral lantern sleeve / 7. striped flounce / 8. wrap dress with bow / 9. utility shirtdress

Thanks for stopping by and reading!

    I love the dress you’re wearing, and I can see it so easily being layered up for cooler weather too 🙂 You’re right that the perfect work dress can be hard to find sometimes – but I love when I do find them, they stay in my wardrobe for a while! 🙂

    You haven’t posted in a while, hope all is okay and that you are having a lovely weekend! We have the sun back again after a pretty rainy week which is nice! 🙂
