The enjoyment of our work attire is contingent on two things: how comfortable it is and how long it takes us to get dressed in the morning.

So when it comes to optimized composure with minimal effort, shirtdresses are our go-to. They're easy, professional, and naturally put-together — the blessed workwear trifecta. And they certainly don't have to be boring. To prove it, we found 17 button-downs that keep our 9-to-5 fresh, so you can pour your energy elsewhere (like, say, your actual work). Click through for some very sleek upgrades.
