If you work in an office with a dress code that's even a little bit corporate (that is, something more put-together than jeans and a hoodie), you understand the struggle of getting dressed for work every morning in an outfit that's polished yet comfortable. Shirtdresses offer a foolproof answer to the daily ordeal: Stylish, sophisticated, and always professional, they're a good choice whether you're on the way to your first internship or headed to the corner office.
This season, pick a style you can layer under a blazer or a light jacket, taking you from meetings to happy hour with friends. There are options that are free-flowing from shoulder to hem (like an oversize oxford, but tailored for an intentional fit) and others that are belted at the natural waist. Short or long, the staple can be worn with loafers and socks, block-heel mules, or pointed pumps.
