That’s where the sleeveless dress come in. It’s more breathable than the sleeved counterparts and it won’t make HR pay you a visit for breaching dress codes. The best part? You can wear these dresses on weekends too.
3. Michael Kors Collection studded wool-blend crepe dress, US$1,957.76 (S$2,682.44)
Not only do the strategically placed studs on this Michael Kors dress help fake an hourglass shape, it also tricks the eye into thinking that the body is longer. After all, who doesn’t want to cheat when it comes to curves and height?
Channel Sporty Spice and not Scary Spice when you don this Alexander Wang bodycon number to work. We love its nod to sport aesthetics with its U-neck and racerback design. Play it up with a pair of chunky sneakers.
5. Gucci Sylvie Web stretch jersey dress, price available in store
For days where you have to meet clients or have an important presentation with the big bosses around, you definitely want to dress to impress. Fortunately, that’s as easy as wearing this preppy Gucci number. Show them you mean business and complete the ensemble with a pair of knife heels.
Just because you work in a male-dominated field doesn’t mean you always have to sport the masculine pantsuit. Don’t be afraid to show off your femininity with a blazer dress instead. Finish with a pair of slinky barely-there sandal heels.
Even if you take a pared-down approach to your dressing, it doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun. This Mango design will soothe your inner minimalist while the white asymmetric top detail adds a cool factor that shows off your tasteful eye.
While you swear by the countless LBDs in your wardrobe, you also don’t want to risk being labelled an outfit repeater. Instead, opt for unique details such as a asymmetric hemline like the one on this Sabrina Goh dress. This number is versatile enough to be paired with sneakers on the weekends or heels for work.
9. Rye long tent dress with v-neckline – pine green, S$169
A billowy tent dress is a quick, slip on and go design that hides all the sins after a night when you’ve had too much wine and cheese (we can relate). Wear it slouchy and loose-fitted or add a statement belt to cinch the waist.
With a round neckline in front and a cut out detail at the back, this Mphosis dress is a subtle way to have some fun while adhering to strict dress codes. For those who swear by the Addams Family fashion sense, this design is also available in black.
