We’re all familiar with the LBD (little black dress) that is perfect for dates, weddings, and other social events; but let’s focus on the WBD (work black dress) which has it’s own fashionable purpose. I like to have at least 3-4 WBDs in my closet that I can easily slip on in the morning and know that I can walk out the door looking professional, chic, and confident. Here are my top favorites to check out for 2017 that are found at Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack.
I’m a huge fan of the long sleeves for offices that like to keep the temperature so cold an igloo could safely stay frozen. I also love that the pleat in the front gives the dress texture and personality. Easily dress this one up with black sheer tights and a bold necklace.
This dress is great for traveling, being that you can easily fit it into a carry on without it taking up too much room. My favorite detail is the belt, which adds a flattering visual and emphasizes the smallest part of your body. Spice this one up with a sports coat or a leather jacket.
This style is extremely in right now (selling out everywhere). The chic neckline, shoulder cuff and slim fit makes for a perfect WBD. Buy now, thank me later!
This dress serves as a classic WBD. Go from Plain Jane to Miss Fashionista with a nude or a pop of color pair of heels.
As you kick off the New Year, these dresses will be great for Interviews or additions to your work wardrobe.
