33 Office-Ready Dresses

A dress is one of those pieces you throw on and don't really think about again until you take it off when you get home. But, why have it just hang there when it could actually do work for you while you're working? That's where the practical shift comes in — these frocks solve those pesky office conundrums, thanks to special add-ons and details.
Running to a meeting with your laptop in one hand and a tablet and phone in the other? Well, since you can't magically grow a third limb, try a dress with extra-large pockets to store the rest of your essentials, like a notebook. Office still blasting the AC even though it's fall? Go for a nubby sweater dress made of thicker material. Can't get through another minute without coffee? Run out the door immediately without worrying about the weather — your built-in hood is there to save you. Ahead, we rounded up 33 of these dresses in a variety of cuts and colors to suit everyone's taste. Click through to find the style that'll work perfectly for you.
