The season of balmy getaways is drawing to a close, and as we return from our holidays and pack away our sundresses, it's natural to slip into a "back to work" mentality. In preparation for autumn, we're turning our attention to the gaps in our wardrobes; identifying those pieces that make getting dressed for colder weather a quick and stress-free process. If you work in an office, you'll know that professional-looking dresses definitely sit in this category. After all, many of us spend most of our weeks working, so it's smart to stock up on appropriate attire. And what better time than a brand new season to freshen up your workwear?
With a roster of polished dresses, you'll cut down your getting-ready time significantly—which, as the mornings get darker and the temptation to stay in bed mounts, can only be a good thing. No more rushed 7am attempts to match your tailoring in low lighting.
It's only the start of September, and already the choice of office-friendly autumn dresses is overwhelming. Crafted from slightly thicker fabrics than our summer picks, the 20 dresses we've deemed worth your attention are suitable for the range of temperatures September and October generally throw at us. Simply tweak your accessories and layering pieces accordingly. Whether your budget is two, three, or four figures, we feel confident you'll find your new favourite uniform below.
