The crisp white button-down was practically invented to win any office essential face-off hands-down. Every fashion mag told you to buy one and even showed you how to wear it five different ways. But while we’re on the topic of work wardrobes, here’s another staple you need, stat – the shirt dress. It’s so street-chic, you won’t mind wearing it like a uniform. Except (and this is the best part) we just found you five different styles that you can totally rock, Monday to Friday. Take a look at these 9-to-5 outfits that are made for the working girl whose style is always on-point.
This navy blue striped shirt dress is the only kind of Monday ‘blue’ you want to have. Wear this smart belted dress with a pair of skinny jeans and get the perfect style start to your week.
When you’ve got your work mojo back, show it off with this snake print shirt dress from Quiz. Slip into your black stilettos or a pair of booties to pull this look off and rock a boardroom meeting.
