Taking requests: work dresses
A lot of you have questions about how to dress for the office—particularly, it seems, for creative workplaces—and I am at a bit of a disadvantage as to how to answer, as it has been such a long time since I’ve found myself in such a situation. But I do know that when I worked in an office, I found that reaching for a dress in the morning—instead of bothering with separates—simplified matters greatly.And I would totally have gone for this one, because it looks fantastically comfortable and is very chic in a slouchy way.
Polka dots are a little un-serious for a work setting, but the cut of this dress is so clean that I think it works.
Such a great floral, and I’d probably add a cotton cardigan to make it more work-appropriate.

Here’s a dress that would work in even the most conservative of offices—yet it still has interesting details.
Again, I’d throw a cardigan (or, even better, a shrunken leather jacket) over this choice.
This is a really good combination of flattering and elegant.
