Business Casual Closet: Work Dresses

Now that I've been back in the business world again, I'm back to wearing business casual 5 days a week. Since this is what I'm in most days, I want to wear my work clothes just as much as the rest of my wardrobe. If you are just starting to put together a work wardrobe or wanting to refresh it like I am, focusing on classics is the best way to spend your money. All of these dresses are under $150 and many of them are under $100!

Dress + pumps + accessories = out the door

A dress is the fastest (and in my opinion chicest) way to get ready for work in the morning. The focus on your work wardrobe should be the fit. You want something fitted but not tight to keep the look professional. The dresses I've put together are simple but definitely not boring. Most of them only need heels and some jewelry to complete the look. Depending on where you work, you can gold bold or simple with your accessories!

This pleated green dress is the first one on my list! I love that it can go from work to drinks after. I love tie neck tops and I love this dress version. It's something new for me. Special details can elevate any look. The flutter sleeves on this navy dress give it a special touch. This dress is just asking for your favorite necklace!

This classic checkered style fits in almost any business situation. For a more formal look, layer over your favorite blazer. You can add some color to the look with my favorite pumps from this post!

Don't be afraid to wear prints at work! Stripes are my favorite print and it doesn't get more classic than black and white. The cut and way the stripes are placed creates a slimming effect. This dress is flattering on almost every body type! I've talked about shirt dresses a few times before and I love this print version.
