Work It Dress

Given the fact that, other than jeans, I don't actually own a single pair of trousers it will be of no surprise to you that my working wardrobe consits of dresses, pencil skirts and some more dresses.

I don't have the kind of figure that suits floaty, shapeless dresses so I have been so greatful to asos.com for their collection of great value, fitted dresses over the last few months. I actually bought the same dress in red, black and blue because it fits so well and is uber comfy! It is currently on sale for £20 on asos.com and they have a few sizes left in all 3 colours.

I also have the wrap effect asos.com dress in black and burgandy but I really love this taupe shade too.

There are another few dresses from asos which may find their way into my wardrobe over the next few weeks... The rusty orange and oil yellow shades will be nice and bright for spring/summer and will look great with some nude heels.

What I love about the dresses is that they are really good value for money and come in a great range of colours. If you find a style that suits you and you feel great in then it is definitely worth buying more than one colour - I've already had my money's worth from them in just a couple of months.

I've also got several Hybrid dresses on my wishlist which are my favourite style of dress.

I love this coral shade and the exposed zip at the side is very Mrs Beckham... never a bad thing!


Dress £85 Hybrid (http://www.asos.com/Hybrid/Hybrid-Dress-with-Side-Zip-Feature-in-Midi-Length/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2000905&cid=12448&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Coral)

This white wrap effect, side detail dress, also by Hybrid is gorgeous and comes in a few different (very tempting) colours.

This hot pink Hybrid square neck is another classic number which will no doubt end up in my asos basket...

Dress £90 Hybrid (http://www.asos.com/Hybrid/Hybrid-Cross-Over-Front-3/4-Sleeve-Pencil-Dress/Prod/pgeproduct.aspx?iid=2001440&cid=12448&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=20&sort=-1&clr=Pink)
Dorothy Perkins have also excelled themselves at producing these gorgeous fitted dresses.

The coral one is my favourite and only costs £28! Amazing value for money...

And this green dress is another DP bargain at just £35.

So, if your budget won't quite stretch to £1,000+ for a Victoria Beckham or L'Wren Scott pencil dress then fear not; just make ASOS, Hybrid and Dorothy Perkins your go-to for your working wardrobe needs.
