This plus size gray work dress can absolutely be worn year round! A great way to make your work dresses more versatile is to layer. Be it adding a cardigan or a blazer on top or trying one of my favorite “tricks:” adding a button down underneath. Even if your dress is sleeveless or short-sleeved, you can always wear a crisp white button down under it.
You can roll up the sleeves or, as shown in this outfit, leave them down for a chic look. Note that the button down should have long sleeves if you aren’t going to roll them up. Meaning, don’t combine a dress with an elbow length sleeve with a three-quarter length sleeve button down. The proportions will look “off.”
However, a three-quarter length sleeve button down will be perfect under a sleeveless dress in the spring! So, a good guideline is to have ample length between the dress and the sleeve sticking out or have very little showing, like that of a rolled up sleeve. Am I making any sense? I am writing this pretty late and I am starting to wonder! Lol. And to really change up the look, layer a button down under the dress and then a blazer on top! There are so many possibilities!
