    Spring Dresses: Wear them Now & Later

    We know, your sick of winter.  Heavy sweaters and wool pants have got to go!  The first thing we think of when we think Spring- Dresses.  We picked out our favorites that you can start wearing to the office now.  Don’t worry there wont be any negative gossip in the hallways.  Just follow our advice and add layers.  Then when Spring temps finally emerge and you can remove those jackets, cardigans, boots and tights; your work wardrobe will still look fresh.  These dresses are our top picks to wear now and later.

    For a Casual Chic office, we love this jasmine hued jersey dress.  Add a cropped cardigan with a fun print that will also look great with your dark wash denim.  Tights are a must this time of year, go for charcoal opaque styles.  Pull on a pair of flat whisky colored boots and this look will tell your co-workers you have it together.

    When Spring comes shed the layers and heavy boots.  Instead add a beaded necklace, some bangles, and peep toe pumps.  This style from Indigo by Clarks will be super comfy with the thicker heel.  Use black and silver as your accents instead of brown to maximize the springy effect.  Since this dress has sleeves, though they may be short, it’s perfectly acceptable for the workplace without a jacket or cardigan.  Especially since your the lucky lady with a casual office.  Throw a pewter clutch in your tote for an added effect when you run out to lunch.

    When the temperature warms feel free to shed the jacket.  While this dress is practically sleeveless it is very modest and covered up.  You won’t feel over-exposed in your meetings.  Again, accessorize.  It’s what makes spring dresses feel light and fun.  While you probably have a beautiful watch you wear everyday, try picking up a fashion watch for Spring.  Step our of your cubicle in fierce blue pumps.  These will look amazing with you black trousers too.
