    Serious attention to detail—a textured weave, tonal piping, and a concealed back zipper—makes this classic sheath look so much more expensive than it is. Bonus: It’s made from slightly stretchy fabric, so it fits just so.

    To buy: $35, hm.com.

  • Topshop Crepe Wrap Dress

    Talk about multitasking—with its to-the-knee hemline and flounced short sleeves, this wrap dress is demure enough for any office, but flirty and feminine enough for a post-work date. Available in two colors.

    To buy: $80, nordstrom.com.

  • LOFT Mosaic Side Shirred Dress

    This light, swingy dress may not be a traditional, workday silhouette (or hue), but the half-length sleeves and modest neckline keep things office-appropriate.

  • Modcloth Broadcast Coordinator Dress

    Tailored at the waist, with an on-trend knee-length hem, this shirtdress looks just as good with heels and an oversized portfolio-style clutch as it does for casual Friday with flat sandals and a crossbody bag.

    To buy: $80, modcloth.com.

  • J. Crew Factory Wool Dress With Pockets
