Women's Work Dresses
Dress for the job you want and strike the perfect balance between office style and sophistication. Success is guaranteed with Portmans’ range of fashion-forward work dresses.
Make a power move and own your office look with the pencil dress. Nipped at the waist, this silhouette cuts close to form for a professionally presented appearance. Tea-length hemlines lean towards the more conservative side, but you can still have fun with an above-the-knee hem. Accent your look with minimalistic jewellery and polished pumps.
Keep your careerwear in check with a preppy edge above the rest; houndstooth and check prints always make the best first impressions. Incorporate layers to combat the office A/C chill – a lightweight trench or a closely cropped blazer both pair well with your work uniform. Style your dress loose or belt up at the waist for a cinched-in look. It’s time to check out this season’s must-own trend.
Don’t ruffle any feathers at work; ruffle up your dress instead. Whether it’s a tease at the hem, flair on the sleeves or draped over layers, the ruffle never stops being a time-tested favourite. It’s your versatile transition piece that takes you from workplace to dinner and your next occasion.
Take your corporate identity to the next level in linen. The breathable, textured fabric makes a cool return as a top choice for the warmer weather while also maintaining a professional edge. Keep ironing to a minimum when caring for your linen; a stiff fabric doesn’t fall quite as naturally. Linen likes to breathe and a soft-to-touch feel is what you want for an organic look.
Lead the pack in clean colour blocks and geometric shapes that fit in perfectly with the professional work culture. It’s business as usual with black, red, navy and grey, while florals and pastels will also work for the high-flying executive. Shed the jacket to transform into your look for after-five.
Bloom bright during office hours; all-over prints are a hit this season. Assert yourself in a big way with bold florals that make a statement. Offset your prints with traditional black pumps and a structured tote. Reset your workwear and frock up in florals; business attire has never looked this pretty.
When it comes to ladies dresses for work, there’s only one place to come to find success. If you’re feeling adventurous, try day dresses or jumpsuits for a change. Regardless, our range will be giving the office floor envy for days.
