Dresses with sleeves – fabulous dress for work for a professional look over 50.


Article by Ceri Wheeldon

dresses with sleeves for work

To look, professional, chic and ‘current’  in the workplace,  a shift dress, with sleeves is a great choice. Look for fabrics with some ‘give’ that wont crease throughout the day. I made the mistake early in my career of buying some fabulous linen skirts and dresses which great when I left the house in the morning, but left me looking like a crumpled paper bag by lunchtime!

I think the key to looking professional is in part to dress ‘agelessly’ and choosing the right shift dress can really help acheive this.

I love this black pinstripe dress from Baukjen –  in a thick stretch jersey it looks chic while being comfortable at the same time. Add a statement necklace to take you from day to evening. Ageless dressing at its best in the workplace!

Cost:  £149 from Baukjen

 

A pencil skirt is also available in the same fabric for those who prefer separates.

Baukjen often run special offers so it is worth checking their website frequently. I have bought many of their dresses over the past couple of years and don’t think I have ever paid full price.
