Reader Request - Work It Out!

Greetings Fashion Divas,

I have a reader request I want to share from Angela.

Hey Fashion Pad,

I just received a promotion at my job so I'm trying to look the part. I've started purchasing some power suits but my money is looking a little funny now because I've spent so much on suits. I was hoping you could point me in the direction of some really affordable dresses for work. I work in a corporate environment.
Thanks in advance.

Wow, congrats Angela! I have included a couple of options below and a list of my fav stores for affordable, cute dresses for work.

Antonio Melani 'Elan' Dress

$47.70 (on sale)

The collar on this dress is strong and sharp. It exudes a sense of power. At that price, I need to go scoop up this lovely career dress.

Calvin Klein Matte Jersey Squareneck Dress


Change up the shape of your typical black dress for an interesting look. I would recommend adding a belt and pearls to top of this simple garment.

Merona Fit Solutions Rouched Dress


We've finally let up the strict color codes in the work place...even corporate America. I still would suggest you add a smart, tailored blazer to make this dress and overall look a little more polished.

Worthington® Square Neck Pleated Dress with Pockets


What a wonderful fab find! I adore this structured dress and the price is absolutely lovely ;-) I think you can add either a simple strand of pears, a belt, a blazer, a cardigan, or leave it as is!

Super Affordable (Chic) Career Dresses:

  • Kohl's
  • Macy's
  • Dillards
  • Ross
  • Target
  • TJ Maxx
  • Marshalls
  • JC Penney

Those are just a small go to list. If these options aren't what you're looking for, please let me know and I'll throw the whole arsenal at you. Good luck!

Au revoir!

The first and last dresses are the best to me.
