I wore this fun striped shift dress to work, then straight to an after work event. If it isn’t obvious to you by now, I love shift dresses for work. See here, here, and here for some work wear inspiration.
What you ‘re looking at today is my basic work uniform. I dress with a belt and flats, or heels if I’m feeling fancy. I walk everywhere in DC so comfortable flats are an absolute must.
This red and white shift dress didn’t come with the belt. I just used my own to cinch the waist a bit. I absolutely LOVE skinny belts for the way they can completely change the shape of a dress or top. I’m going to have to try to add belts to the rest of my shift dresses to see how the look dramatically changes.
I DID find a seller on ebay where you can get any color skinny belt for under $2. I actually just ordered the leopard one for the fall!
Check out some more work dresses I’ve worn this summer below, and some others I wouldn’t mind adding to my closet! I especially love this one for the laser cut details. Most of these would look awesome belted!
