If sexy is your preferred sense of style, no one’s going to judge you, but it can be a little difficult to pull that off in the office.
Rather than buy a whole new wardrobe, here are a few dresses you could wear to the office without getting in trouble with HR. It’s really all about how you dress them up (or down) and what you wear with them to keep them work-appropriate.
This dress is simple in colour and material, but the detailing on the form-fitting skirt makes it standout. To make it work-ready, pair this with a more formal jacket or a blazer so that you’re not showing too much skin.
This classic LBD with a sexy one-shoulder design shows a little skin up top, but is a decent length for the office. The colour and style keep it decidedly formal so that showing off some shoulder isn’t an issue.
Probably better for creative types that work in less strict industries, but at the end of the day, this dress is all covered up. The satin slip on the inside keeps everything in check while the modern mesh design looks fashionable and sexy.
This dress is a great day-to-night dress. It’s fun and flirty, but the midi length is modest. The backless, low-cut top can easily be toned down with a blazer (you’ll need one anyway in a cold office).
Here’s a new way to wear your power blazer. This fitted dress with its retro-style big buttons is giving us an 80s throwback power-woman vibe. Slick your hair back, throw on some statement earrings and walk into any board meeting tall and proud in this one.
We’re still going for that 80s vibe. The big shoulder action on this dress makes it fun and playful, and the length will shows off some leg. Go with an ankle boot or something chunky so that the look isn’t too 80s.
The colours on this one are standout, while the length is totally modest, what we like about this dress is the asymmetric length and the sexy slit in the back.
This classic silhouette is far from boring. The wide cut-out in the shoulder gives the edge, even if the high neckline keeps things demure.
You have the option of wearing this dress alone, or with a sheer blouse inside for a sweet n’ girly vibe. The form-fitting design is sure to make you feel sexy and confident on your way to your next power lunch.
This local brand’s got the whole elegant/sexy thing down pat and this new design, a backless shift dress with pleated organza underlay, is totally sophisticated. It’s sexy in an easy, breezy way. Wear it anywhere.
For some industries, formal shorts are an acceptable form of workwear. Which means it’s a “yes” to the romper if you’re working in one of those places. This one is feminine, sweet and playful all at once.
The scoop neck and the colour all lend itself to making this a standout dress. The addition of the see-through panel in the skirt makes this one a head-turner.
