Office dress codes are becoming more and more relaxed, making it easier to incorporate some of your weekends looks to your 9-5 too. I am still a firm believer that you should always look smart in the office as well as comfortable, no matter what the dress code is, so I always apply a number of rules when it comes to dressing for work to make sure the outfit is office appropriate.
I picked up this polka dot dress in the sale for 25% off last week, and although I wore it out for dinner Saturday night with the girls, it also ticked all the boxes to qualify for 9-5 wear too!
It may finish above the knee but the sleeves covering my shoulders create a balance, and the way it pulls in at the waist gives it a very sophisticated, classy look. The V-neck is cut just at the right spot, meaning it doesn’t show too much cleavage at all. Small details like this can make such a big difference in deciding whether or not it’ll see you through the weekend and into work too!

I’ve had a rummage through the Summer sales and was surprised to still see so many gorgeous and heavily discounted polka dot pieces that can be easily styled for both the weekend and 9-5 too. I’ve included them in the lookbook below in case you fancy a browse.
