When it comes to work wear, you don’t have to invest a ton of money into your wardrobe to look great! This week’s Work Wear Wednesday, I’m styling a Target dress. It’s under $40, and makes for an easy work wear look that will carry you through fall! One of my favorite places to shop for affordable work wear pieces is Target! They just released a ton of new arrivals that I’ve been swooning over, including this Who What Wear floral shirt dress.
SHOP THE LOVERLY GREY LOOK
I’m all about a dress in the dead of summer. It’s easy to throw on and stay cool at the same time. I especially love this one because the puff sleeve detail makes it a little more conservative. If you are in a professional setting, you wouldn’t need a blazer over the top. The less layers in summer, the better. I’m wearing a size small and would say it runs true to size. I kept the fabric belt with the dress and tied it in a bow. However, you could could also take that off and replace it with a neutral belt of your choosing to change up the look. I also love that the color palette is a littler darker. You could easily transition this into fall by switching out the braided sandals for a pair of knee high suede boots.
If you’ve been a part of the Loverly Grey community then you know I love to mix price points to create cohesive looks. For instance, I will pair a Target dress like this one with my favorite YSL crossbody bag and round out the look with my most-worn Dolce Vita sandals. Target does such a great job of creating affordable pieces, like this button front shirt dress, that look high end! I personally love the A New Day and Who What Wear lines from Target, especially for work wear. They both offer a great mix of wardrobe basics and more statement pieces that you can gradually mix into your wardrobe. I’ve rounded up a few more of my favorite high end, yet affordable, looking dresses for you below! I also recently shared even more affordable work wear finds from a variety of retailers in this post.

Target also has a great selection of tops, bottoms and skirts that you can mix and match to create multiple look. One of my most worn black dress pants are from Target’s Who What Wear line and are less than $30. You can shop them here. To see them styled with a blazer and heels, check out this post. I recommend having a good mix of dresses and separates in your work wardrobe. This way you’ll never fall into a rut work wardrobe rut. Target just released some of their fall preview items.
