12 Fall Dresses That Are Perfect For Work


We see any throw-on-and-go piece as a godsend. Thus, we often look to dresses on Monday mornings (or any other day of the week) when our brains are still in weekend mode. However, dresses are offered in numerous styles, meaning some are more appropriate for work than others. While we suggest seeking out polished daytime silhouettes that aren’t too tight or short, we don’t want you to sacrifice being stylish for something boring. So, try opting for one with cool details and fashion-forward shapes. Need a little inspiration? Shop our editor-approved selects of fall dresses—from an elegant high-neck knit and lace frock to a chic tweed number—that you’ll adore wearing from 9 to 5.
