I Never Wear Dresses to Work, But I Would 100% Try These

That’s a lie. I did wear a dress to work once recently, during my I Tried It Week challenge, but it was so unusual and unfamiliar to me, that it actually was what drew my attention to the fact that I never really do it otherwise. I wish I had a reason for you, but I don’t even know why I don’t wear dresses to work. Perhaps it’s because I’m so comfortable in jeans (even in the summer) that I don’t really feel the need, or maybe it’s because I don’t have the right ones. Whatever the reason, my one dress-to-work experience this year really made me feel like I should be doing it more often, hence today’s roundup. From $35 to $300 and up, I found 24 dresses that I'd totally ditch my daily denim look for. To see what made the cut and, of course, do some shopping along the way, just keep scrolling. 

I had to start with this stunner.

Nanushka never fails to reinvent the wrap dress.

Your coworkers won't know what hit them.

Perfect for pairing with sneakers or sandals.

Perfect for work and well through the weekend.

For more casual office dress codes (like ours), animal print is not off-limits.

Sleeper's dresses are so versatile you can wear them to lounge in, to beach in, or, of course, to the office.

This is definitely summer-ready, but it would also look so good with a sweater in the fall.

Wide-cut is another way to say breezy and comfortable.

I'm obsessed with tees so this is right up my alley.

Faithfull's dresses have taken the fashion world by storm this season.

A not-so-classic take on the polka-dot dress that feels fresh.

I feel like a minidress can work for the office if it's a little more covered up top.

Another day, another Topshop dress on my wish list.

I love the added touch of the tortoise-tone belt buckle on this one. 

If off-the-shoulder tops are off-limits at your office, not to worry because Rixo has plenty of other options for you

I don't usually wear pink either, but this whole outfit is speaking to me.
