Back to School means back to work. Business conferences are starting again. Whether you are attending a formal conference or a more casual convention, here are four fall work dresses that are comfortable and professional.
When you want to pull out all the stops and show them who is in charge, this is a great dress. It has an elegant classic shape with some exciting, modern details, like the slit 3/4 length sleeves and wide belt. Pink is feminine but commanding and shows you don’t have to dress in the old-fashioned blue suit “dress for success” way to be taken seriously.
Wear this with classic pearl earrings, a classy watch, slingback pumps, and a beautiful bag. This is a great transitional look for early fall.
If you are in a creative field or a free-spirited entrepreneur, then you might want to wear something a little more casually polished and artsy. A sweater dress is a great option. I love this gorgeous blue button sweater midi dress in the popular new Pantone color called Midnight.
It looks fabulous with sleek tan booties and this print Tory Burch tote which adds pattern, texture, and personality!
When you are not sure what to wear, you can’t go wrong with a classic look. This twist knot sheath dress with the modern, figure-flattering twist is perfect for any conference. Gold twist earrings and a watch keeps it looking classy and chic, and this quilted bag adds executive impact. Black slides look elegant in early fall. Switch to close toe pumps as it starts to cool down.
Like everything, conferences are getting more casual but not as simple as jeans. So what do you wear? A wrap dress is always a great solution. It’s professional but relaxed, feminine and figure flattering. If you need an extra boost of authority, slip on a jacket. Blue is a color that builds trust in business, so you are on the right track with this color.
The print makes you more friendly and approachable than by wearing straight navy blue. Add a touch of casual but classy jewelry and some nude pumps, and you are all set to mix and mingle with your colleagues.
Have a great conference!
