What’s In?!

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.


Delilah Accordion Pleat Front Dress 

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. 



Neck Ruched Sheath Dress 

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.



Military Neck Midi Dress

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!



Seamed Pencil Dress

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.
