13 Work Dresses to Get You Through Winter

DailyWorth has offered tons of great, useful fashion tips on dressing for work, if we do say so ourselves. But thus far our focus has been on the traditional office. When we started talking about our next fashion story, we looked at each other — and our outfits — and realized that we, like many of you, don’t work in a corporate atmosphere.

While business casual can be freeing, it’s no less difficult to dress for. So this go-round, we stripped back, quite literally (good-bye, blazers). With that in mind, our newest fashion piece highlights 13 easy-to-throw-on dresses.

We chose looks that range in price and style to fit various salaries and silhouettes. And we stuck with classics that can be worn again and again — meaning this Monday and next Thursday — by adding another layer, switching shoes or swapping accessories. Dive on in.
