If you don’t have to wear a uniform for work you’re probably the envy of your friends who do! Realistically, however, making that choice everyday of what to wear can be a bit tiresome, and most of us create a kind of safe and dull uniform of a few pieces which we use in turn. But with a bit of forward planning you can have a few appropriate yet stylish items that you’ll enjoy wearing and will lift your spirits on a wet Monday morning! Dresses are an ideal choice, as you can alter the look with say a jacket and different shoes and accessories. We have chosen three which are stylish, smart, and a whole lot more interesting than dull skirts and blouses or the inevitable dark trouser suit.
1. Spotted Tea Dress
In a choice of three colours – maroon, green or beige, with an all-over pattern of white spots, this dress has a lovely fresh summery look. Made in a cool silky-to-the-touch fabric it has wide cap sleeves and an elasticated waist and a round neck. Midi length and ultra-comfy this is perfect for a long day at work. Perfect to wear with a smart jacket, or fitted cardigan or bolero shrug. You’ll love this attractive tea dress so much you’ll want one in each colour!
2. Navy Printed Panel Jersey Dress
This is a really smart dress; a centre navy panel and side white panels with a small navy patterned design. The thick jersey fabric has a slightly stretchy feel, for comfort. It has a round neck and three-quarter length sleeves. Calf length, team with black or nude tights and smart heels.
3. Black and White Check Midi-Dress
With cap sleeves and round neck and shaped bodice, this dress is perfect for work-wear. It has an attached self-tie fabric belt so that you can tie it at the back, to fit. The A-line skirt glides over your hips, then flares out. Made of viscose fabric, it doesn’t crease. Team with a smart black jacket and shoes, or a long-line fitted cardigan. This dress could also be worn into the autumn, as the fabric is quite dense.
These three dresses would look equally good for after work social occasions – add some jewellery for a touch of glamour! Forget boring and embrace colour and style to brighten up the weekdays!
