If you live somewhere warm, you probably want to rock the sundress as often as you can, right? It’s such an easy, gorgeous, and fun way to show off your style! But if you’re working, meeting a client, or even shopping at Tiffany & Co or Chanel, you may want a more professional look—like this work-and-play sundress!

Runway Looks

 

Work and Play Dress

 

A collar, long sleeves, and length past the knee give this dress a professional and office-appropriate appearance. But the half sleeve and open bottom allow for a breezy airiness (with a little bit of sexy toom hehe).

 

 

You can lower the half sleeve to a full sleeve for when you’re in the boardroom, and then roll it back up when you hit the town. Did you know that men often use their sleeves to show their authority? Take a play out of their playbook and use this same sleeve-trick to show off your feminine power! Here’s GQ’s advice on how to roll up your sleeves the proper way.

 

 

The front-tie cinches the waist to avoid a boxy look, but it also give a relaxed, beachy vibe. The color orange energetically draws attention and promotes enthusiasm and warmth—perfect to take command of a meeting or to take control of the town!

 

 

Always Adorned Accessories

 

 

These white queen slippers are the mullet of shoes: business in the front, party in the back. The pointed toe is professional and respectable for the workplace, and the back is relaxed and goofy!

 

Match these white shoes with a dangly white earring that will draw the eye from top to bottom. I love matching my shoes and accessories—it’s a little touch that goes a long way.

 

In the same vein, this black bucket bag goes perfectly with square sunglasses! This purse is similar to the dress in that it gives a relaxed feel, while also being chic. It makes the sundress less summery and more professional.

 

 

Get out there and show off your power in a sexy, comfortable, polished sundress!
