Spring Dresses For Work

Spring, you’re tough for me. It’s my least favorite season to dress for, and frankly, is a bit of a sham in NYC. I write this spring dresses post lusting for a few blooms in the concrete jungle…. while it’s snowing. So let’s pick a few dresses to lighten the mood, shall we? Here’s what caught my eye as I think about work-wear dressing for spring.

White work dress

Badgley Mischka

If you’re panicking because this is white and tight, do reconsider. This dress is my wardrobe workhorse in black and it would look so fresh for spring with some nude pumps and perhaps a glinty necklace. The sleeve length is delicate and the looser top keeps it work appropriate. That said, size up, it’s on the narrow side.

Ann Taylor

Ann, I almost never pick you but this was a lovely find. Spring doesn’t have to mean florals and the shape of this gives the menswear inspired print a feminine spin. This is a perfect addition during the chillier spring months, as it would take a blazer, jacket, and booties wonderfully. Of course, you’ll also wait for a sale and snatch this up at under $100.


Black work dress

Felicity and Co.

Wait, a black dress doesn’t scream spring? The lighter, open sleeve and casual tie is just the transition piece that you’ll pop on every Monday when you can’t bear a jacket and layers any longer.

Jacqueline Belted Dress

This will need a serious hem on me. I’m here for it anyway. It’s crazy classic and the near boucle texture has you channeling some Chanel vibes. Add some delicate gold touches and push up the sleeves to relax it a bit.

This comes in black and I might need both. Replace the fabric belt with something a little more substantial and add a pump for this to go to the office. I also like to take my shirt dresses to my tailor and have her sew down most of the buttons (popping it over my head) instead of living with the annoying fabric gaps when sitting or shuffling around.
