5 Essential Office Dresses You Need for Work!
Admit it ladies, we all have those wear-the-first-thing-you-see-in-your-closet moments. Maybe it’s because your boss suddenly texted you saying you have a last minute early meeting, or maybe you’re not feeling well and just can’t be bothered. *cough OR maybe you just woke up late cough* Whatever it may be, it’s important to have essential office dresses so you can always look good under any circumstance! Here are 5 work dresses that’ll require minimum effort to give you maximum style!
Office Dress 1: Ruffled Dress
A statement in itself, ruffled dresses are life-savers. You don’t need much to pull off this one! Mules would be a great choice to pair it with; adding elegance and poise to your look. Plus, it’s perfect for meetings and presentations with your clients. Throw on a well-fitted blazer if your dress is sleeveless and you need a little more cover up, it’ll make you feel powerful anyway. Some ruffled dresses are a tad too casual though, so just try avoiding those for work!
Office Dress 2: Shift Dress
The definition of simple and chic. Shift dresses are everyone’s go-to because it’s the safest option out there, but that doesn’t have to mean boring! Try printed shift dresses, or layer up with necklaces for plain ones. What’s even better is that you can bring this look with you straight for a night-out! Just swap your usual handbag to clutches and you’re good to go.
Office Dress 3: Black and White Dress
You can’t really go wrong with black and white dresses. In fact, you can’t go wrong with black and white. It’s the most classic of colour combinations, and it fits office settings really well. If you need a pop of colour, try bright heels or a coloured blazer to balance it out. Monochrome goes well with any colour, so you have the license to experiment as you please!
Office Dress 4: High Neck Dress
Will it be too hot? Maybe. Will it be worth the heat? Absolutely. High-neck dresses ooze grace and make you look incredibly polished. Just like ruffled dresses, they don’t require much styling. Simple pumps and your usual handbag are good enough to complement it. If you are worried about the heat (it is Malaysia, after all), collared dresses - the midi ones, please - have the same effect.
Office Dress 5: Slip Midi Dress
No, do not wear this on its own. At least, not to the workplace. Instead, wear with a simple tee or blouse underneath. Not only is this a trend of the season, it’s something different! Just make sure you’re properly covered at the right places (as slip dresses tend to be thinner), so always remember to double check. If you feel this look is too casual, wear em’ on a Friday (casual Fridays, right?) or elevate the look by wearing a working blouse beneath it instead.
