Now here is a lovely twist on Blazers for the office! Have you ever wanted to explore blazer dresses for the office but felt they weren’t the most professional ensemble? I hope after reading this blog post, you’ll be inspired to try this look and add it to your own work wardrobe. Blazer dresses offer a unique look, yet also still provide a professional edge at the same time. I challenge you to tap into this look for the office. You’ll be surprised by how professional and polished you’ll feel while wearing it; I know I did!
This look is perfect for a hot summer work day. I don’t know about everyone else but comfort, style and professionalism are three very important factors when I’m dressing for work. I feel especially as an African-American woman who works in corporate fashion, I need to always dress the part, and this look just does it for me.
The dress itself is extremely comfortable and the plaid provides a professional edge. I felt like such boss with my black Marc Jacobs bag and block heels I recently purchased from Just Fab. If heels aren’t your area of comfort, I would recommend pairing a chic pair of flats that you’re comfortable in. Wedges would dress it down depending on what the wedge looks like, so wedges probably would be out the picture if you’re aiming for a more professional and polished look. The key to making this look work for the office, is to focus on wearing a blazer dress with a sleek print such as plaid, a neutral color blazer and a low block strappy heel. The Plaid and double breasted feature screams all about business, while the strappy low block heel is an important number for style, versatility and comfortability. I’ve seen several black and navy blazer dresses that were very professional and chic looking. Any blazer dress in either of those colors would work well in the office.
