No matter what season it is, weather is always a factor when it comes to making our sartorial decisions—especially when we’re getting dressed for the office. During the winter, we’re often tasked with choosing pieces that feel polished and professional without compromising our level of much-needed comfort. While indoors we’d love to wear our most comfortable items (e.g., sweatpants), the second-best option is to wear effortless winter dresses for work.
When the last thing you want to do in the morning is leave your warm bed and brave the winter elements, an easy dress is the perfect one-and-done staple for your office wardrobe. The only other things you’ll need are a pair of tights for an added layer, a coat, and chic boots or heels to finish off your ensemble. Below, we’ve rounded up the 17 best dresses that’ll keep you warm and cozy throughout the workweek but still highlight the working professional you are.
