After months of working from home, many of us are finally heading back to the office. Dressing for business in fall 2020 may be more relaxed than before, but you’ll still want to look professional. Here are some lovely, affordable office-ready dresses to get you off to a fresh start.
1. Houndstooth Sweaterdress
When you want to look polished in a casual way, a sweater dress is an answer. I always have one or two in my closet come fall because they are just so darn comfy, too!
It’s easy to find a sweaterdress in a solid color. Something like this houndstooth print sweaterdress is unique and very appropriate for business since it has such a traditional vibe.
The other nice thing about a sweater dress is that it shows off your shape without being tight. Add some high waist shapewear shorts for a smooth and flawless look.
Sleek suede booties look better than shoes when you are wearing a sweaterdress, and this luxurious black tote adds a professional touch.
2. Belted Dress
Here’s a modern dress that I find very cool because if you look closely, you will see that this tame print is actually a little wild. It’s subtle leopard print- black on dark green, and it makes for a very chic look.
The other beautiful thing about this laid back dress is the attention to detail. The split V-neck, the stitched belt, and the slightly puffed 3/4 length sleeves give this dress a perky, feminine look.
Instead of pumps, why not try a low heel bootie just for fun? Keep it black to make the print stand out, and add a black bag and earrings to complete this beautiful Boss babe look.
3. Floral Wrap Dress
A wrap dress is ideal for work right now because it is dressy without being stiff and formal. Soft draping across the tummy is super figure-flattering, and this gorgeous plum and blue floral print give the dress a fashion-forward look and feel.
The notion of pastel colors for spring and summer only has long gone by the wayside. These powder blue suede block heel sandals look great this time of year when you are in-between seasons and heading towards Autumn.
Keep your bag neutral, so you don’t overdose on color (see how we have picked up on the taupe in the dress?), then add some silver earrings (cool tone) to match the cool blue, purple and taupe shades in your outfit.
4. Faux-Wrap Dress
Here’s a comfortable work dress that you can slip on and go! This timeless faux wrap with the empire waist always looks understated and appropriate, whether you choose to wear it plain or dress it up a little.
Wear it with heels or flats (they work too), and go with neutral accessories for a conservative look or more colorful ones for a more creative look.
