Even as the temperatures drastically drop in Chicago, I am always on the lookout for cute dresses that I can wear to work, but also dress up for a night out. To me, dresses are easier to slip on early in the morning when I am in a mad dash to work because I don’t have to match a top with a bottom and then find a cardigan or blazer to top off the look. And although dresses require minimal accessorizing, they look the most put together. I also love the way dresses fit and drape on my body. They highlight my curves and make me feel sexy, chic, and polished!
Today, I am going to show you two of my favorite dresses from Just My Size that I turn to for both work and play! First up is this 3/4 Sleeve Goddess Print Dress. I love wearing this dress to work as the length hits right below my knee, and the loose fit on the bottom makes the piece modest, yet playful. Although the dress doesn’t have a body con fit, the fun geometric print on a black field highlights my figure, and still makes me feel radiant and goddess-like (YES. YOU CAN ABSOLUTELY FEEL RADIANT AT WORK, and you should!). When I look and feel my best, I know I can tackle any assignment that comes my way. Another feature to note is the all-season three-quarter length sleeves, which make this dress work-appropriate, and they also provide coverage for those who don’t like to show off their arms.
Now let’s slide on over to one of the cutest pieces currently in my closet, the 3/4 Sleeve Ruffle Sleeve Dress. I am obsessed with every little detail of this dress, from the fit to the ruffle sleeves. This piece is a little shorter than the one pictured above, but I’m not complaining because it elongates my short legs, and the form-fitting bottom is very flattering. I am really enjoying how thick and comfortable the material is, which is also really smoothing and flattering. I topped off the look with a pair of high-heel combat booties and a belt to give the outfit a punk-chic vibe! I’m also thinking about sporting this dress to my company’s Christmas party! I may dress it up to include some festive accessories and maybe a Santa hat!
SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 1X in both the Goddess Print Dress and the Ruffle Sleeve Dress, which is one size smaller than my usual size, and both dresses fit perfectly! The material is stretchy. If you want a looser fit, order your usual size. Size down for a more curve-hugging fit!
