1. All dolled up Mini Dress, Free People
All Dolled Up Mini Dress
This vibrant, paisley-print dress is as effortless as it is adorable. While it looks like a mini, it wears longer. It gets bonus points for comfort, since it's made of a cozy, stretchy knit. Style Hint: Throw a cardigan over it for work, or a suede moto jacket for date night, since it has an open-back keyhole.
2. Midi Turtleneck Dress, MANGO
Turtle neck dress
Price: $71.99 • 40% SavingsMangoOriginal: $119.99
The basic sweater dress gets a big upgrade with an elegant midi-length hem and a vertical ribbed texture, both of which add slimming lines to any wearer. Style Hint: This body-conscious silhouette is a perfect layer for your favorite embellished jacket, so add a blazer, belt and any other accessories that need a plain background underneath. We'd reach for a trendy shearling with a moto cut to bring this basic into 2019.
3. Faux Fur trimmed dress, Macy’s
Faux-Fur-Trimmed Shift Dress
Price: $49.75 • 50% SavingsMacy'sOriginal: $99.50
Faux fur cuffs transform this simple black sheath into a luxurious dress. The sleeves are ¾ length which makes it even chic-er in a Jackie O kind of way, and keeps the fur out of the way when you’re working or at dinner. Style Hint: Pair with ladylike heels or grown up Mary Janes, and add a sparkly necklace for extra date-night drama.
4. Printed Long Dress, MANGO
Printed long dress
Price: $59.99 • 50% SavingsMangoOriginal: $119.99
This asymmetrical hemmed design in a chiffon fabric looks pulled together with a simple black belt. It's lined and long, so while you look like you're in a flowing print cloud, this dress is perfect for winter functions. Style Hint: Wear with black boots and if the neckline is a little low for your office, layer a sleek black turtleneck underneath. It will offer coverage without distracting from the print of the dress.
5. Wool and Cashmere Sweater Dress, Universal Standard for J.Crew
J. Crew Wool & Cashmere Sweater DressOriginal: $148.00
We love this dress by Universal Standard in collaboration with J. Crew, for its bright berry color and sumptuous cashmere. But above all, we love it because it's available in sizes small through 5X (XXXXXL). Style Hint: Wear with or without tights, and throw on a pair of black flat over-the-knee boots on for an adorably mod 1960's look.
6. Amore Heart Print Dress, The Fifth Label via Nordstrom
Amore Heart Print Cutout MinidressOriginal: $118.00
The most flattering dress to slip on, any day of the week, is what's called fit and flare because it fits from the neckline to waist and then flares into a gentle A-line from there to the hem. We love the gentle bell sleeves with elastic around the wrists -- the best of both worlds since some oversized sleeve draping can get in the way when we're working! Style Hint: The keyhole neck is a flattering detail: Wear your hair up to accentuate the tie-neck, and no other accessories are required!
7. Faux Suede Jumpsuit Dress, Zara
Faux Suede Jumpsuit Dress
Nothing makes us fall in love with a dress instantly more than pockets! This one, in faux suede material and a chic ochre color is perfect as a diversion from all our winter black and grey tones. We’re sold, all for under $30. Style Hint: Try brown or hunter green tights with this color because black looks a little bumblebee, and wear brown suede boots to keep the earth tones going.
8. Cable-Knit Sweater Dress, BP.
Cable Knit Sweater Dress
Price: $41.40 • 40% SavingsBP.Original: $69.00
This oatmeal cable-knit dress is cozy, chic and ultra-flattering with an oversized cut and gently undulating texture. Style Hint: If this shape overwhelms your frame, defining your waist with a wide belt is a great solution. We'd reach for a faux snakeskin one, as we love mixing textures. Add boots or sneakers and you’re good to go.
9. Buttoned Check Dress, MANGO

10. Floral Midi Dress, BP.

Get into the Cowgirl trend with this western-inspired floral midi. We love that the olive cherry blossom print works for any season. Style Hint: Pair it with cowgirl boots, but try some of the shorter ones with tights that pick up any of the colors of the print.
11. Free People French Girl Dress, Macy’s
French Girl Contrast Mini Dress
Price: $54.00 • 50% SavingsFree PeopleOriginal: $108.00
Don't shy away from this bright red bold, since it actually flatters most complexions beautifully and adds a touch of pop to your winter wardrobe. Style Hint: A long overcoat will highlight the short hemline of this red mini, so never worry that your coat is longer than your dress, since contrasting hems looks confident. Add some black tights and slouchy boots and your outfit is complete.
12. Femme Midi Dress, Treasure & Bond
Femme Midi DressOriginal: $89.00
This ultra-feminine, breezy dress is made even better because Treasure & Bond have vowed to donate 2.5% of net sales to youth-empowering organizations. Style Hint: Add a leather belt to cinch the waist like in the picture: this creates the illusion of much longer legs. Match your belt with your boots, even lace-up hiking style boots like these, since it goes with the chic country vibe.
13. Foil Dot Midi Dress, Hinge
Foil Dot Midi Dress
This light and breezy midi dress is the most comfortable work-wear option next to showing up in your pajamas. Style Hint: Black or white knee-high boots look amazing with this dress because of the subtle leg slit in the front.
