If you’re dreading heading back to work then there’s no better time to snap up a new work wardrobe. But before planning a frantic one-afternoon shopping session where you buy several pieces that will see the daylight once, let me tell you the solution.
We all have at least one item in our wardrobe that we pair with the same things over and over again. Here is where I come in, showing you how to wear your favorite dress in three ways.
While our jobs might differ slightly (the perks of being a full time blogger), that doesn’t mean you can’t take a little inspiration from what I wear. Today’s style inspo: one dress plus three ways equally chic to wear it.

This dress is made of a polyester blend making the fabric lightweight yet still giving it a thick, almost textured, look. The geometric print makes it perfect for work worn on its own or with a blazer for a more formal approach. Mixing it up by wearing a pinafore dress instead of a suit might just be the chic twist you’ve been looking for.
Keep it appropriate for the office by wearing smart heels and a long, classic coat. It also looks great with over-the-knee boots, perfect for a desk to dinner look.
I have to say I love a classic. And nothing serves me better than the timeless loafer. Not only does it offer round-the-clock comfort, it’s also a chic alternative to ballet pumps, and works particularly well paired with cigarette trousers and a crisp white shirt.
Still not convinced? Then why not wear your dress as a top? Team it with flared trousers and a cross-body handbag for a fun yet laid-back look.
Now that you’re armed with my tips for looking chic and stylish at work, head down to your local Dorothy Perkins store or shop from the comfort of your own sofa. The only problem you’ll have is trying not to buy the whole workwear section. It might even make you look forward to weekdays, just so you can show off your style.
