I was looking at these dresses for work but not sure if I can manage to wear them without looking frumpy. I work in a smartish office but I tend to look very frumpy when I try and look smart. How could I accessorise these and do you like them ? I'm size 8 (M&S sizes) and 5ft 4, short legs and 40something!
Keep it simple like they have in the pics - good shoes (patent high heel) and black opaques, or nude tights if you have to. I have a couple of silk scarves (modern ones) I use with very plain dresses (the panelled one wouldn't need it), or a thin belt as someone suggested, but (in my personal view) chunky beads and cardigans could be what makes it go wrong.
Thank you for all the comments, I will look at some scarves as I dont really have any smart ones that would go with a dress. Number 1 is actually my favourite b/c it has no waist therefore v. comfortable but I will probably keep number 3 as smarter thanks
