This weeks question comes from Aditi:
I find dresses so easy to wear in the spring and summer. Can you give me some dress recommendations for work and casual wear?
Dresses for work are genius. Unless you are in a seriously business professional office, required to wear traditional suits every day, a dress can often be your best bet. They rest in this lovely place where you can sit across from someone in a formal suit or casual separates and look perfectly pulled together.
Be aware of the length of the dress. Your professionalism can be killed by your hemline, regardless of the style or brand. Avoid large patterns in bold colors, they will not look as sophisticated, especially if you are in a more conservative office. Instead, put your personality into accessories.
To make this comprehensive, we broke down the best dresses of the season from our favorite stores and brands:
