As someone who works 9-5 in an office during the day, it can be hard to find office wear that is a little different but also comfortable and appropriate for board meetings. Also important? The price. There are some amazing pieces in high-end retailers but personally, I don’t want to spend my budget on office wear, I prefer to spend it on select pieces for my out of office wardrobe. And that is where Lennon Courtney at Dunnes Stores comes in.
You may remember that I shared my top 5 pieces from their Spring Summer collection here, well today I wanted to share my top picks from their Pre-Fall Resort Collection. The pieces I picked up in Spring have lasted really well over the past few months and I find that when you look after their pieces they really last, so it does not feel like I am purchasing fast fashion as I know I will go back to their pieces time and time again.
This dress is just beautiful and would make the most wonderful statement. The pretty flowers on the dress are stunning and this floaty piece cinches in at the waist with the self-tie belt to ensure a perfect silhouette. And did I mention…. it has pockets!! It would look amazing with a chic black blazer for the office.
It was both the colour combination and neckline that drew me to this piece. The bold stripes are soft against the blue and the boat neck adds an unusual twist to the top. It is a top I could see myself wearing in the office and then also wearing out afterwards as it is bright and would not look out of place in a restaurant or pub.
This dress looks like it would be so comfortable to wear, but also looks chic and tailored. The A-line cut with the wide cut sleeves is so modern and yet it looks like a classic piece. What I love about this piece is that some statement jewellery would step this up another notch and make it stand out even more.
With the stripes not being straight on this, it makes it much more fluid and adds a sense of fun to the piece. The addition of gathered cuffs makes it more finished and this would look great under a dark blazer.
And last but by no means least, is this beautiful statement dress. The dress falls beautifully and I love the neck-tie, it is so unexpected but really works well with the piece. Also… it has pockets! Any dress that has pockets always gets another tick from me.
All of these pieces are from Lennon Courtney at Dunnes Stores are exclusive to Dunnes Stores. Are there any pieces that have caught your eye?
