Office Style – Shirt Dress

So this has become one of my favorite dresses for work.  This day, I decided to take it outside of the office and paired it with simple two strap sandals – but a quick switch to pumps and you’re workplace ready.  The best thing about this piece is that the simple color palette leaves room for expression. Here I added a red belt for a pop of color, but I’ve also paired it with blush pink accessories in the past or kept it simple with the matching sash that came with it.  The length is perfect with heels and avoids the “too short when sitting” issue I typically run into with shirt dresses.  Because it is so long, though, I like that they added slits on each side.  This saves it from looking too “matronly” and gives it a more modern feel.  Fair warning, the dress unlined and pretty sheer, so make sure to wear the proper undergarments.  I went old school and added a short slip for added security.

Length and fabric are the two main things to look out for when bringing these pieces into the workplace and remaining professional.  Not too thin and not too short. If you’re in between sizes and unsure, go to the next size and belt it. You don’t want it clinging to all your jiggly places. And if you’re unsure about the length, blazers and flats can sometimes help, but don’t push it. Make sure you give yourself some room for sitting.
