The Find: Flattering Work Dresses

Dressing for work during a pandemic was a challenge.  Making it more of a challenge was the weight I gained during isolation.  These two MM LaFleur dresses made putting together comfortable, flattering outfits a bit easier.  And since they’re both on deep discount, you can snap them up for a song.

The Taylor dress is the perfect dress for wearing under a jacket.  The knotted front is extremely flattering, and the drape shapes the figure beautifully.  The large pocket holds a cell phone and a small wallet.  The dress also comes in plus-sizes.

How much do I love this dress?  I own it in four colors.  Yep, that about covers it.

The Emily dress is the perfect Friday dress.  The a-line shape is structured, but comfortable.  The square neckline and elbow sleeve are both very flattering.  The dress is designed to stand alone, but you can layer on a cardigan if you want.  This dress is also available in plus-sizes.

    Belle, do you mind sharing what size(s) you bought the Taylor in, for reference? I’ve had my eye on it forever, and now that it’s retiring, now’s my chance! Thanks!

      Darn! They still don’t ship to Canada. Now I remember why I don’t own this dress already.

      I buy the 6 normally. It still fits even at current weight, but it’s a bit snug.

    Just a warning – if you’re tall (I’m 6ft), the Emily dress will not really be work appropriate. As you can see on the model, it hits more mid-thigh than above the knee and on me it’s even shorter. I’ve had better luck length-wise with dresses like the Taylor (I’m partial to the v-neck on the Annie).
