What do you wear over a dress for work

I really want to start wearing dresses instead of a suit for work, but I'm stuck with what to wear over it for warmth/cover.

It has to be smart enough for client visits, so a cardi won't do.

Am I stuck with a suit jacket? In which case what length

Hmm - not good on jackets, so can't easily help you. But I would definitely say that what jacket you wear depends on the dress underneath - did you have any in mind? Or even the general shape?

I wear dresses all the time and use a trench style mac over them .. you can get very lightweight ones for summer and something thicker for winter

I bought this dress in the sales today, (I'm very happy smile! So it would be for this

zzmum, I hadn't thought about only wearing a coat

How about a neutral coloured softly tailored blazer type jacket, which would go over plain or patterned dresses. Espirit sometimes have them.

I think that dress would be OK with nothing over, other than a coat if necessary - it has quite long sleeves.

Thanks, I've got a business 'thing' to go to next Thursday, I'm going to give it a go then. smile
