I´ve finally rounded up my ultimate list of must-have summer dresses for work. Mind you, it took me 4 hours to create! But I´m really determined to complete it, if it´s to help you build a sunnier work wardrobe. Not only that, I´m also notorious for hunting dresses that are not only work-appropriate but also versatile, easy to rework for dates after five.
So what can you expect from this list of summer staple dresses? What else but bright colors, head-over-heel in loved vivid prints and very interesting color + print + texture combos.
Bold + Bright Colorblock Dresses
Because it´s easy to look overly trendy in color blocked dresses, I believe you should stick with bright colors + black color blocking. Although modern and trendy, the subtle hint of bright colors on black makes these dresses a hundred percent elegant.
Bright Solid Dresses
What I like about bright solid dresses is how they allow you to play with your shoes. This is the time to bring out those printed pumps or chic nude ankle strap heels. You can also add printed jackets with the sleeveless dresses, or use them to freshen up a black suit jacket.
Bright Lace Dresses
Embrace you femininity and never be afraid to go girly at work. Wear a bright lace dress.
Bold + Bright Striped Dresses
Stripes! Do you love this season´s favorite trend and yet you´re not sure if it´s safe to wear to the office? Adding a cute dose of sunny color to a black and white monochrome is just a good way to brighten up your work environment.
Bold Swing Dresses
Swing dresses can be worn for work too. I know they give you second thoughts but in summer, rocking a cap-sleeved swing dress is just tantamount to freshness and comfort. If yours is a sleeveless swing, layer up a lightweight cardigan.
Gathered Style Dresses
Whether it´s gathered at the waist or side, or a wrap dress, show your determined spirit with a bold look. Always wear it with black or nude pumps.
Vivid Solid Sleeved Dresses
Board or business meeting? Check. Promotional presentation? Check. Business trips? Check. Dinner dates? Check.
Irresistible Printed Dresses
Seeing you in a busy, eye-catching print will surely give a hint to your boss that you´re as busy as a bee. From your intelligence down to your work, you´re a great asset to his company. Polish up this print dress with black, white or nude pump shoes and handbag.
So what do you think, girls? Are you ready to make your workdays a whole lot sunnier?
