More often than not, I hear working women complain about the same thing over and over again when it comes to getting dressed for their profession: “What can I wear into the office from 9 to 5 that can also take me into after-work hours?  Looking for the perfect solution and wardrobe selection can be a little daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.

It’s always my suggestion that once the clock strikes 5, take things up a notch whether by adding a bold lip or stripping ways some of those professional layers you’ve piled on, such as a blazer, tights or anything else that’s too reserved or covered up.  To make matters just a little easier. I took the liberty of picking out a few dresses— a week’s worth— that can carry you form day to night with ease.

Whether you work in a cooperate environment or a relaxed setting and want something that will carry you to happy hour or that professionals mix-n-mingle event, there’s a dress on this list for you.  Even better than that, each and every dress is under $50. A dress that’s both professional and play and inexpensive? What more could you ask for?
