The wrap dress

Pretty much any wrap dress is an excellent option for the office. They’re modest, and they are long, and come in a variety of colors. They tend to be made out of a very light fabric such as a poly-cotton blend which stays cool against your skin. They are also not very tight, so it allows a breeze to pass through the material, it also means that it won’t stick to your skin, allowing you to be cool and comfortable.

The shirt dress

The shirt dress is fantastic for any occasion and the perfect choice for a lighter summery look as well as looking professional. The material will be light, and you can add various accessories to jazz it up a bit. You can also wear this in some of the colder months, you just need to add some stockings and a cardigan for a warmer feel.

Short-buttoned dress

It’s slightly more casual, but it’s still a smart and elegant option to go for. They are loose fitting and accentuate all the right features. Most women like to make sure they’re comfortable at work as it tends to be a long day, with short-buttoned dresses you can have as much room as you want depending on what size you go for.

Long A-Line Jersey dress

This dress is cut to be modest and comfortable at the same time. It creates a classic look and is appropriate for any professional or office-based environment. They tend to be in mute colors, but it will accentuate your shape without compromising moving room. If you get a cotton A-line dress, then you’ll be winning, since cotton is a wicking material and helps to cool you down. In fact, any cotton or poly-cotton blend will be a good option as long as it’s in a work-safe style.

Lightweight linen dress

Linen is also an excellent choice for the summer, and they come in a variety of styles too. You can get linen dresses that go to the knee or that go past the knee depending on how long you want it to be. However, this light material is perfect at keeping you cool, absorbing moisture, and being a generally great all round option. It’s also nice and affordable since it’s such a popular summer fabric.

The skater dress

Some of these styles are a little more fun and fabulous than others, and it obviously depends on how adventurous you want to be in the office.
