Posted by Carly Hancock on

Off the shoulder dresses are all the rave right now! You can find them in all colors and sizes, and they're a perfect way to add a little bit of sexy to a dress.

For work, though, you might want to dress it up in a way that would look more professional as opposed to sexy. Here are some off the shoulder dresses that you can make look professional for any day at work!

1. I Mean Business Dress

Without adding anything at all, this dress is very professional. The two solid colors don't make it look like "too much" & it's the perfect length to wear to an office.

If you wanted to make this dress look even more professional, you could add a black or white blazer over the dress.

Put on some shiny black heels, slick your hair back in a topknot, and everyone will know you REALLY mean business!



2. Flirty Sleeve Dress

The sleeves on this dress are perfect for adding a little bit of flair to your everyday work outfit. The body con dress and bigger sleeves work perfectly together, sleek and sassy!

If you wanted to make this look a little more professional, add a dainty necklace and pair this dress with some solid color flats. The sleeves already add some sassy vibes!

COLORS: Green, Yellow, Red, White


3. Shoulder Hug Dress

This off the shoulder dress comes in so many fun colors, you'll want them all! It's perfect for a professional look because it goes past the knees, but also adds a little bit of a sexy look with the off the shoulder neckline.

For a more professional look, add a chunky necklace to the black dress and complete it with heels that match the color of your necklace (pink necklace, pink shoes)! You could also add a blazer for colder weather.

COLORS: Purple, Black, Pink, Green


4. Side Swipe Dress

This dress is perfect from both a professional aspect and a party aspect!

The black color makes it easy to pair with any color blazer for that professional look, and easy to pair with any kind of shoes you want.

Adding a black and white striped blazer would definitely command a room and give this look that extra professional vibe. Pair that outfit with some sleek black heels and you're ready to work!



5. Business Mermaid Dress

This mermaid dress is a perfect combination of body-con and flair. All the colors make it a fun dress to wear especially at work where you want to add some fun!

Add a black blazer or black cardigan to make this look more professional. Pair it with some orange or yellow heels to really bring out the fun colors from this dress, stick to dainty jewelry because of the big patterns on the dress!



There are plenty of ways to make these off the shoulder dresses look professional and add some fun to your work day as well!
