Love all your suggested styles but "up there" in age and weight causes many problems. Style, material, price, etc. leave little to choose from. Any ideas that you have would be much appreciated.
Spring is here, which means it’s time to chuck the winter coats in the closet and bring out those spring dresses. And while balancing spring fever with work-appropriate attire might be tricky, it’s definitely not impossible. The styles this season are updated models of timeless classics, with cuts, color palettes, and patterns that will look as fabulous at the office as they do at brunch.
Here are five gorgeous spring silhouettes to add to your wardrobe for work and the weekends:
The Shirt Dress
This style is clean, simple, and flattering on almost anyone. And this season, it’s out in an eclectic range of colors and embellishments that enhance its subtle simplicity. Wear it as it is, and your look will feel as sweet and effortless as early summer. Belt it and add a blazer, and you’re perfect for work.
The Tea Dress
If you’re into the floral trend this season, you’ll love the timeless romance of the tea dress. The bright colors, pretty prints, and feminine shape exude the flirtatious fun of spring, but in an elegant way. This style comes in all kinds of fits, but to make it work Monday through Friday, choose a classically feminine cut that’s fitted, but not revealing.
The Pencil and Mod Dresses
While these 60s-style shapes seem like classics worn every season, they’re definitely being reinvented this spring—with symmetrical lines, geometric patterns, and bright colors. Try one with a black or white blazer and minimalist accessories for a bold-but-professional look, then ditch the jacket and you’re instantly evening-ready.
The Long-Length Maxi
When you think of the maxi-style dress, you probably think of summer nights with a bottle of wine and your feet dug into damp sand on the beach. But this season, it’s totally appropriate in the office, too! The key is wearing a slightly more sophisticated style, and pairing it with a structured jacket and elegant accessories.
The Shift Dress
The shift dress is tricky—give it too much or too little attention, and it won’t work. But just the right shoes and accessories will take this seemingly shapeless garment to runway-ready fabulous. For a chic office look, wear it with knee-high boots, large hoops, and a sleek ponytail.
