Lots of women’s wear magazines and retailers love to sell us on the idea of that adventurous trends are totally acceptable for work, but the reality is many of us work in conservative offices where things like denim dresses and funky tights would draw more than a couple raised eyebrows. One workwear staple that should never be underestimated is the perfect black pencil dress. Over the years, I’ve had a few in a range of prices and the styling options are endless. And as long as the dress fits, you almost never have to worry about looking appropriate. This little number from Brooks Brothers gets bonus points for being the perfect day-to-night piece with its super flattering (but not too risqué) neckline. All it takes to fancy it up for a post-work reception or cocktail party is some fun accessories like some bold earrings and bracelet and a cute bag. What workwear staples do you swear by?

I love the dress. I appreciate seeing clothes that are for adult women who work in responsible jobs and need to dress like adults. Thank you for posting this.
