Workwear: Dresses and Coats

Posted on September 17 2014

Summer vacation is only a distant memory now and it's high time to run into the office and get some serious work done. Workwear doesn't have to be drab or boring- try professional looking dresses. As it gets colder, layer a jacket over your dress. Play up your accessories, and rock your morning commute to work!

Pair this Printed Side Drape Dress by Adrianna Papell with the Mira Trench Coat by Ellen Tracy. Throw on a pair of trusty flats, grab a cute printed work bag and gold and black themed jewelry for a timeless office look. Too cold? Wear this with tights and boots instead.

There is something awesome about tough leather mixed with sweet florals. Both the Claudia Shirtdress and the Lenna Jacket have faux leather sleeves, and paired with leather boots makes for a great strong look. Don't let the black swallow you up, wear a colorful scarf to bring out the colors in the floral print.

Wrap dresses are a staple- they're flattering and easy. This Essential Wrap Dress by Kiyonna is great for everyday, and great dressed up for the office. Wear it under the snuggly and beautiful detailed Valerie Knit Jacket by MYNT 1792 to pull the look into fall. Add timeless and classic accessories like grey booties, a simple watch, go-to work bag, and necklace.

A beautiful, sleek wide stripe down a suede dress makes for a classic piece- great for wearing to work any season. Layer the Courtney Faux Suede Dress by MYNT 1792 under a cozy and flowy cardigan, like the Alessandra Drapey Jacket by BB Dakota, to add movement and warmth to your look. Throw on some pumps and statement jewelry to make your look pop.

We put some looks together, now it's your turn. Which jackets would you pair with which dresses?
From meetings to conferences, presentations to discussions, look professional and fashion forward at work.
