How to Style 5 Dresses From Work to Weekend

 

Besides comfort and style, versatility in your clothes is important.

The same way we love to stock our Summer wardrobes full of floral print dresses and breezy wide-leg jumpsuits that can also be worn in the Fall, we also like clothes that can go from work to weekend. Fun and functional, these five dresses are easily styled up for sophisticated and chic looks that will command the office, but can also be styled for wherever your weekend takes you. From cute casual midi dresses to plaid print dresses and everything in between, we’ll show you how to transform five Connected Apparel dresses from work to weekend.

THE PLAID DRESS

One of the most quintessential work pieces is the plaid dress. There’s just something about a plaid print dress that means business, although that’s not to say it can mean fun too! The Tori Plaid Center Panel Work Dress is the ultimate chic work dress. The carefully crafted plaid print center panel and the buckle at the waist create a flattering hourglass shape. We love how this plaid print bodycon dress artfully defines your figure without being too constricting. For work, pair this dress with a leather tote bag and black closed toed pumps. When you’ve logged out of your email and are ready to hit happy hour, swap the tote bag out for a simple black clutch and grab a shawl for warmth! It’s that simple.

THE JACKET DRESS

Another comfortable and chic work staple is an attached jacket dress. This simple dress is perfect for the office, a casual dinner party or just lounging around at home. No need to worry about finding a cardigan or jacket that matches your dress! The Monica Sweater Knit Jacket Dress is a warm and cozy Fall fashion staple that is sophisticated and easy to style. With an attached jacket in the same soft material as the sheath dress underneath, this gray jacket dress is a one-and-done cohesive look that can go from work to wine. Dress this sweater knit dress up for the office with heels and a tote bag, and down for a casual date night dinner with boots, a clutch and a belt to add structure and definition.

THE FLORAL DRESS

A floral print dress is always a fun way to spice up a work look. Darker colored prints in jewel tones like blues and purples are sophisticated enough for work but stylish enough for a girls night out or an exciting date night. We love the Liz Dark Mallard Floral Bodycon Dress for its slimming silhouette and gorgeous floral print. Carefully constructed side ruching defines the waist while elbow sleeves add coverage and sophistication. Pair this mallard blue floral print dress with black close toed pumps and a blazer for your nine to five. If you’re heading out to a classy date night, swap out the work pumps for balck open toed strappy sandals and a cute clutch bag.

THE WRAP DRESS

We love a wrap dress, and even more so, a faux wrap dress. Endlessly flattering and oh so versatile, the faux wrap dress is something every woman should have! This Fall season we are reaching for the Lisa 2.0 cinnamon dress. This gorgeous cinnamon brown bodycon dress features elbow sleeves with a flounce detail that is as sophisticated as it is fun. For days filled with important meetings and presentations, style the Lisa 2.0 cinnamon dress with nude close-toed pumps and a chic snakeskin bag. For after work drinks or a fun weekend date night, swap out the pumps for strappy gold heels, a clutch, and some statement jewelry.
