I know you might think that’s a pretty bold statement, but hear me out – this Land’s End ponte dress is the best work dress you’ll own.

The material is thick enough to not wrinkle, but thin enough so that you won’t be overheated on a hot summer day. The dress comes with pockets (!) and looks as polished with a belt as without. Add a blazer or cardi for slightly cooler spring days, and by the time fall and winter roll around, pair the dress with tights and boots. It’s an all-year dress that looks perfect with a cute pair of heels. This is the dress for those mornings when you have no time to pick out your outfit – I love just putting on one piece, and I’m ready to go. This dress is also available in solid colors (I’m coveting the navy!) and is truly a perfect addition to any work wardrobe (but would even be cute at a shower or afternoon wedding!).

I swear Land’s End isn’t paying me to say these things! I just really love this dress (thank you, Mom!) and wanted to pass along my love for it to all of you!

  1. That is a nice dress! I hate when something is too thin that you have to wear a bunch of undergarments or too short.

  2. OBSESSED! I’m completely obsessed with your entire look! You’re so pretty!! This dress (and the perfect shoes you chose to wear to match it!) would be PERFECT for the summer weddings and graduation parties I’m attending this summer! I’m a bit too broke to buy this dress now, but it’s on my wish list for my next pay day! :)

  3. SO cute!! I’m in love. How tall are you? Is this the regular length? I miiiiight be ordering it today ;)

      5’10″ – and yes, this is the regular. If you’re shorter, I’d recommend getting this dress tailored as I think it needs to hit at or just above the knees to look the most flattering. I LOVE it! (in case you can’t tell ;) )

  4. Love this dress. Very pretty!!!!!!



  5. This does look like a perfect work dress! I love the print and colors — so versatile but not boring at all. Thanks for the recommendation!!

  6. What a pretty dress! I could see it being a great work dress!

  7. I LOVE IT! And it looks fantastic on you.

  8. Such a cute print, and the pumps are a perfect match!

  9. Perfect dress for Summer….the prints, the shape & length!! And those shoes nailed it all together!


  10. This dress looks fantastic on you! Lands End is a brand I don’t really give enough credit to but largely because they don’t have stores here to shop.

  11. This dress looks beautiful on you! The floral print is just so perfect:)

  12. This dress is absolutely beautiful, and the color of the shoes are a perfect match! I really love everything about this outfit. It’s great that there are so many ways to wear the dress; I’d definitely add a blazer while at the office. And who doesn’t love pockets?! Anything with pockets is a winner in my book.
