For fashion conscious working girls who are hoping to update their nine to five wardrobes for the year, the perfect frock can offer a welcome break from your usual corduroys or skinny trousers. Luckily, we’ve compiled five sophisticated dresses which can flatter your corporate style for the season ahead. Whether you prefer vibrant hues or understated neutrals, here are a few frocks to add to your ever-growing closet in the weeks ahead.


1) Sister Jane 2 in 1 Amethyst Shirt Dress, $138: With its dark blue colour and flattering skater style, this shirtdress is an easy combination of cool rebel and corporate girl. The sweet faux pockets, flirty hemline and striking white collar all help to create a playful and girlish effect.


2) Lauren Ralph Lauren Jersey Boat-Neck Dress, $160: If you’re ready to rock jewel tones as the mercury drops, step into this brilliant red number by Ralph Lauren. The boat neckline and fitted three quarter sleeves help to balance out the curve-hugging silhouette, while the pleated detail brings visual interest to the look.


3) Ted Baker London ‘Dardee’ Embellished Body-Con Dress, $217: Embrace the season’s midi dress trend in this fitted frock by Ted Baker. The punchy magenta hue can bring instant warmth to your business style, for a much-needed break from understated greys. For a ladylike accessorizing touch, the embellished neckline brings subtle sparkle to a figure-flattering and mid-length dress.


4) Club Monaco Bethia Collared Sweater Dress, $229: For more low key work days when you’re craving warmth and comfort, slip into this timeless merino wool dress from Club Monaco. The preppy navy blue sweater dress also features a poplin shirt collar, and just may leave you channelling your inner schoolgirl this season.


5) Cynthia Steffe ‘Maya’ Tie Waist Fit & Flare Shirtdress, $264: For minimalists who want to inject subtle femininity into their winter wardrobes, we are liking this versatile black dress with its smart collar and defined waist-cinching belt. Meanwhile, the slight flared skirt and cap sleeves bring a modest touch to the entire design.
