Dresses for date night, the office or running errands

A versatile dress goes well with almost any occasion. Add some accessories and you can feel polished and put together but not like you tried too hard. These are dresses I found that look easy, comfortable and are affordable. They’re all hand or machine wash too. (This is an affiliate post! No one contacted or encouraged us to pick these items.)

A flattering bodycon turtleneck sweater dress
I own a couple of turtleneck sweater dresses and they’re so cute and nice for cold days. This knee length sweater dress comes in three different colors and sizes from small to x-large. It accentuates curves, is said to be soft, and “hugs your body without showing off every hill or indent.” There’s also a cute double stripe along the bottom. Here’s a cowl neck sweater dress in more colors and here’s a plus-sized turtleneck dress around the same price point, but it’s not a sweater.

A striking wrap dress that will get noticed
This Lark & Ro longsleeve v-neck wrap dress is under $40 and comes in five different prints and sizes from x-small to x-large. Women say they “received so many compliments” and that it’s “flattering” and “skimming” but not tight. Here’s a link to a 3/4 sleeve print plus-sized dress that comes in sizes up to xxx-large.

A comfortable t-shirt dress you can wear anywhere
I would wear this cute t-shirt dress to bed and practically all day. It’s such a bargain at less than $20 and comes in five different colors and sizes from x-small to xx-large. Reviewers write that it’s “so simple & comfortable,” that “you can dress it up or down” and that it’s “ my favorite piece of clothing that I have ever purchased from Amazon.” ‘

A hoodie dress with over 1,000 positive reviews
This may not be as dressy as the others, but it’s so cute and comes in over 20 different colors and stripe options and sizes up to 3x. This would look great with sneakers or heels and women write that “the material is very nice and the price was reasonable” and that it has “the perfect amount of spandex to breathe in the summer.” Some women say it runs small though it’s said to be flattering.

A sexy pencil dress with asymmetric stripes
This slinky pencil dress is under $26 and comes in both sleeveless and 3/4 sleeves and so many pretty colors with contrasting bright stripes. A lot of women love it, but some say the material is cheap and that you’ll need to wear a slip underneath.

A sleeveless jersey v-neck dress
This dress comes in gray and black and sizes x-small to xx-large. It’s just $20 and has a 4.3 star rating. It’s said to be “really soft,” “not too clingy” and “looks more expensive” than it is. A couple of reviews say it’s not flattering for everyone and is best suited for medium to small-sized women. There are plenty more comfortable dress options from this brand, Daily Ritual, including a short sleeve bateau neck and a 3/4 sleeve v-neck.

I’m still looking for a good button down shirt dress with a wrap belt! I couldn’t find a well reviewed one on Amazon that wasn’t over $100. This one is really cute (not the dress below, people love that one!) but it only has one review.

    I have the bottom dress in three colors. Really great for work in a nice flat or a sensible heel and a blazer or cardigan thrown over it.

    I love those daily ritual T-shirt dresses. They are my favorites all summer.

      Ok I am definitely going to get these now. I have a couple of dresses from other brands in this fabric but they are too clingy and I feel self conscious in them. This is what happens when I do these posts, I buy half the stuff.

  3. Becks1 says:

    Doooo it! You will love them. They’re a good length too. It’s something easy I can throw on and add a cute necklace and look a lot more put together than I feel.

    Thanks for this. I wore dresses all through the 90s for both work and down time but at some point I seem to have phased them all out of my wardrobe. I’m starting a new job in an office soon (after 16 years working from home!) and maybe it’s time to add some in again.

    I remember feeling like dressing for work was so much easier with dresses, just throw one on and look pulled together instantly.

    I really like the hoodie dress!

  8. Lemon says:

    Yoooo imma get that hoodie dress in like 10+ colors!

    I have the hoodie dress in two different colors (one bright red and one wine red that are basically identical LOL), and I get SO MANY compliments on them! They’re knee length, comfortable, stretchy, and once when I forgot I had court and was wearing one for a chill office day I threw a blazer on over it and no one could tell the difference LOL. They do breathe and I’ve worn them on summer days when there was a slight breeze because I run cold and am always very comfortable in them. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    I love these dresses. I want the t-shirt dress and hoodie dress in all of the colors! My wardrobe goals revolve around clothes I can wear to work that are comfortable enough to wear to bed 🙂
