Bows, Bows, Bows!: The Best Dresses with Bows for the Office

Posted by Claire Erickson on

When thinking of bows, the holidays typically come to mind. I mean, who doesn't love a pretty bow on top of a present? But, bows don't need to be exclusive to Christmas. In fact, why not try them out at the office? They add a touch of whimsy to any outfit without being inappropriate in the workplace. Luckily, we have the perfect dresses for you to try bows at work!

1. Best of Both Worlds Dress

This dress is the best of both worlds, because it contains both of the best neutral colors-- black and white! Even if thats not enough for you, you can try some of the bolder colors that this dress comes in including: pink and blue; as well as black and pink. What I also love about this dress is that the belt is also two-toned, so your bow will be both colors of the dress!

With this black and white version, I recommend wearing a bold red lip.

COLORS: Black and White; Pink and Blue; Pink and Black


2. Geometric Biz Dress

Patterns galore! Though this dress contains bright colors and sharp lines, it is surely office appropriate. Even better yet, there is a belt that comes with the dress to be tied at the waist in a little bow! Though the bow might seem like it could be a little much, it blends right into the pattern-- subtle detailing. 

Like the picture above suggests, wear a tan pair of sandals and paint a nude color onto your nails for your next day in the office. 


3. Waist Tie Dress

This dress looks so comfy! What's even better is that you can wear this visually appealing dress to the office. The tie at the waist accentuates your curves and the charcoal color can be matched with almost any accessory. Make sure, however, to not just tie the fabric in the front, but to make a little bow!

Wear some gold bangles over the top of these sleeves for a dainty, but expressive statement!

COLORS: Black, Green, Purple


4. Fierce and Fearless Dress

All white and off-the-shoulder? A little risky, no? No. Office attire regulations and trends are shifting nowadays, so try wearing this dress to work, or to your next speaking event. 

What would really make this outfit trendy and classy would be by adding a black, velvet hair bow with pearls!

COLORS: Black, White
