It´s been a while since I featured my spotted desk-to-date dresses. The last features I did were the black and white monochrome dresses and the polka dot long pencil skirt.
Still fresh from my travel in Prague, which city girls almost always wear a dress; I noticed that my blog posts have been a series of dress posts. Haha! I hope you don´t mind.
So what can you expect from these twelve dress-to-date dresses? They´re simple, clean, easy to wear, yet attractive. They´re perfect for a long day at work and a late night date after work.
Work-Appropriate Fit and Flare
1) Lark & Ro. Dress, 2) Anne Klein Dress, 3) Ellen Tracy Dress
As you can see, I picked two bright solid dresses and a bright mono-print dress. All three are sleeveless and knee-length, and have a subtle flare at the skirt. Simply throw over a sleek jacket to wear it to work, and by removing the jacket you´re ready for a date!
You can go for a black or a white fitted and tailored jacket for all three, but for the green dress you opt for a dark green blazer.

Black and White
1) Anne Klein Dotted Dress, 2) Lark & Ro Lace-Inset Dress, 3) Lark & Ro Wrap Dress
With their less is more aura, sleek cut and modest silhouette, these black and white dresses will bring some fun to the office. You can add a lightweight jacket or wear them as is if the weather is warm. Keep your footwear in black and closed if it´s for work, but have fun with ankle straps if it´s for date.
1) Theory Dress, 2) Calvin Klein, 3) Kasper Dress
There´s a ready elegance that comes along with midi dresses whether it´s the slightly fitted frock with below the knee pencil skirt, a sheath shape, or an A-line cut. Because these dresses are sleeveless, it´s safe to add a jacket or a tailored blazer to them. You can have fun with the peplum jacket for the body con and sheathe dresses, or with a simple crop jacket for the A-line dress.

1) Lark & Ro Faux-Wrap Dress, 2) Lark & Ro Fit-and-Flare Dress, 3) NY Collection Three-Quarter Sleeve Dress
Black is powerful. So they say. But how do you keep your femininity while looking powerful? Through the style and cut of your dress. My favorites this season are faux wrap style, textured-dobby jacquard fit and flare with emphasized cap sleeves, and the ever elegant three-quarter sleeve, cross-front ruching and V-neckline features.
You can go for a head to toe black, or ease the power down with nude high heels. But remember, this is the best time to carry the most attractive, bright handbag.
Choosing sleek and easy desk to date dresses isn´t only stylish, it´s also practical. If you own dresses that are as versatile as these, you need not battle with a cluttered closet.
