As we transition from flowing maxi dresses into work-appropriate frocks, it’s time to update your career wear wardrobe with the latest pieces that are perfect for professional life. From feminine lace to high necklines, office style calls for ladylike influences with well-tailored details. We’ve compiled a few looks that you can easily rock this September, whether you are at a new job or just heading back into the boardroom after Labour Day.
Millie Mackintosh Belted Pencil Dress, $41: With the off-shoulder neckline continuing to have a presence well into the coming season, this neckline trend is a great look for company events or functions. The thin, waist-cinching belt and the slit up the leg complete the design.
TAHARI Bell-Sleeve Printed Shift Dress, $51: If you’re wondering how to inject a bit of colour into your wardrobe, there’s nothing like a patterned frock to bring your #ootd to life. With its splashy blossom print and rainbow colour palette, this dress makes a loud statement that can help bring summertime colour into the cooler months of the year.
Eliza J Ruffle Sleeve Sheath Dress, $135: For all the corporate gals that like basic black no matter the occasion, this ruffled sheath just might be an appropriate fit for your wardrobe. With its subtle V-neckline and wide bell sleeves, this LBD is appropriate for both the office and after work drinks.
1901 Stripe Lace Fit Flare Dress, $189: For anyone who believes that lace is for the evening hours only, this flared lace dress may work for a business setting as well. With its Peter Pan collar, girlish sleeves and navy blue and cream colour palette, this dress is a conservative daytime spin on the trend of the little lace dress.
