Summer Fashion: 5 Dresses That Work for the Office and Happy Hour

Hi lovelies! Oh boy! It has been a scorcher in my neck of the woods this July. I don't remember ever having sweat so much. This made me think about an article I wrote a while back about dressing for work and play. I want to take this idea for summer dressing. I am looking to Amazon (I am an affiliate) to find dresses that are suitable for a summer business dress code but can also serve just as well for drinks after work.

Gabby Skye Women's Plus Size Floral Dress $66.00

This cute dress is a fit and flare number. It is fitted at the bodice (top) with a high, wide neckline. It's sleeveless to help keep you cool. The black and beige print is not over-the-top lending it being paired with a black blazer or beige cardigan if needed at work.

The dress is perfect as is for an after-hours drink or date. Just bolden your makeup a bit. Perhaps pull your hair up in a messy updo. Switch out your low-key work jewelry for some large statement earrings and you'll be ready to turn some heads.

PARIS SUNDAY Women's Spaghetti Strap Midi A-Line Wrap Dress $49.50

A spaghetti strapped dress with a low V-neck is not appropriate for a business or business casual dress code. However, these features can be hidden with a lightweight, button up blazer or suiting jacket. I would recommend purchasing both the peacoat blue and multi strip versions of this dress. The blue will serve you well from Monday through Thursday. The striped is perfect for casual Friday.

After work, remove the blazer or jacket. Perhaps adorn yourself with large hoop earrings and a long necklace to help accentuate that deep-v. With this dress, you can ditch the business pumps and go for a casual sandal, especially if your feet are tired. You may as well look good and be comfortable while you unwind after work.

Calvin Klein Women's One Shoulder Dress $99.50

This is a sexy dress. As is, it is way too sexy for work. As with the PARIS SUNDAY dress, simply wear a blazer of suiting jacket with this and you will be fine for work.

This dress is perfect for an after works date or drinks with a crush. Ditch the blazer or jacket. Create a sexy, messy updo, and maybe change into a sexy pair of strappy heels.

Jessica Howard Women's Plus Size Cold Shoulder Dress $99.00

Cold shoulder anything is not very business casual. So, like with the other sexy dresses, wear a blazer with this for work and some sensible pumps. Wear your hair in a bun or pulled back into sleek ponytail.

After hours, again ditch the blazer. Let loose a few tendrils of hair to create a wispy sexy look for that bun or ponytail. You can change into sexy heels or keep the work pumps on. This dress also comes in misses version as for $89.00.

London Times Women's Plus Size Posies Print Bell Sleeve Matte Jersey Wrap Dress $79.00

This dress is casual Friday to the letter. You don't need anything extra to make it office-appropriate. Just wear sensible pumps for work.

The dress is still cute and flirty for after work. Perhaps muss your hair a bit and smoke out your eye makeup for a sexier feel. Even with a work pump, you will still look great. There is also a misses version of this dress for the same price.

All five of these dresses perfect for work and play this summer. Just make sure to add a blazer or jacket for the sexier dresses. Also, sexy your beauty game after hours.
