A smart sleeveless dress is probably the most versatile dress you can have. They´re called desk-to-date dresses because you can layer them up with a cover-up for your nine-to-five job. After five, you simply have to take off your topper, show off those toned arms, swap the work shoes with sexier sandals, and you´re ready for a date.
But one of the challenges that you may face is styling these sleeveless dresses for work. Afterall, it´s easier to just go for the ready-to-wear sleeved dresses than experimenting with sleeveless frocks. Take a good look at the these three style ideas.
Floral Print Dress with Bolero
Sheath dress is a reliable working dress for most women. This classic shape flatters your figure without clinging too closely to the skin. It´s a signature versatile piece which you can wear to work and to night outs.
If you have a stunning floral print sheath dress, try layering it under a sleek bolero in color that matches your print. The transition of color from your topper to your dress is elegant. Add nude pumps to keep the eye to the top. Black shoes would work too but know that they´d make the look heavier.
Navy Blue Dress with Yellow Blazer
Chiffon dresses earned their crown for being the most favorite formal party dresses for women. But you can also rock a chiffon dress to work. This navy blue knee-length dress has a stretchy tan top and pleated chiffon skirt which make the dress easy to manage.
Its color, mix of textures and shape make this dress a smart option for any event. To wear it to work this summer, break the seriousness of navy with a yellow jacket. Keep the color pop to a minimum by adding black shoes and accessories.
Lavender Dress with Rose Jacket
This lavender sleeveless frock is sweet and feminine but it can easily look dull if worn with neutral colors. You´d want to wear it with other bright colors but you´d rather not go over-the-top since you´re wearing it to work. The best approach is to style it with analogic colors. Rose, light pink and shades of blue are shades that would nicely blend with this lavender dress and still keep it professional. Add nude shoes and a nude bag to the look.
