The 12 Best Work Dresses on Amazon
Updated: Feb 8
Isn't it fascinating how Amazon has quickly become a top destination for clothes shopping?
Gone are the days when we used to associate Amazon with just books or electronics shopping.
I believe this surge in clothing shopping on the platform is due to the fast delivery options, wide range of prices, variety in clothing options, plus size accommodation and ease of the returns process.
Women in particular are using Amazon to shop both trendy pieces as well as classic fits.
Amazon now offers so many affordable dresses in different colors and a comfortable fit.
One very important item being hunted for is a comfortable work dress. With a large number of employees returning to the office this year, work dress shopping is seeing a surge in searches.
If you're looking for some inspiration on what to wear back to the office, check out my post HERE which can help you with that and THIS POST provides you with your Fall wardrobe essentials.
In this post however, I would be focusing on my list of best Amazon fashion work dresses,
All of the dresses on this list are at a reasonable price point, come in several color options and would be sure to meet at least most office wardrobe requirements.

After being able to work from home in yoga pants or even pyjamas, the first thing a lot of us are seeking in a work dress is comfort.
The dress has to pass the following tests:
-the sit down test (you must be able to sit without holding on to anything for dear life and not flash your colleagues while doing so)
-the 'no weirs bulge formation in my groin or waist area' test.
-the 'arms up' test - we need to be able to reach without pulling a muscle...or ripping an armhole
The dresses on this list should pass these as well as other tests you may deem necessary to qualify a dress as good enough for work. They also come with great reviews.
1) The faux wrap dress
Wrap dresses are one of the most flattering and innovative fashion ideas to exist. The best part about a faux wrap dress is that it successfully gives that same illusion and effect without the fuss of looking for that annoying little hole.
These Amazon picks are great for work thanks to the flattering neckline and wrap-like effect.
They could be perfectly styled with these mules or white sneakers for a more casual look.

For the warm weather, this V-neck tie waist dress would be such a great work dress seeing how breathable and flowy it is. It works great for everyday wear.
Another tie waist option, this time with pleats, is this midi dress. I also love the slightly dramatic sleeve which adds some no-fuss fashion to your office look.
It would be a great option to wear to a baby shower or even bridal showers!
2) Stretchy pencil dress
If you are not one to shy away from showing off your figure in an appropriate manner at work, the next dresses are definitely for you.
It's such a shame some office environments have over sexualized these types of dresses when they are worn by women with more curves but I can confirm that these dresses are definitely work appropriate.
So if Cathy or Tom feel 'uncomfortable' with you wearing this dress at work, tell them to come see me.
Fell free to accessorize with a simple gold plated necklace and some cute flats.
For more of a bold look at the office, try the same dress in either this polka dot or hounds tooth print. I love the white collar detail and how it hugs in all the right places.
You could pair these dresses with a pair of pumps or some black loafers or flats and even leggings underneath during the colder months.
3) The A-line dress
A-line dresses are known to elongate the body, giving the appearance of being taller thanks to their longer cut and length.
The following dresses offer a flattering fit and would not only do that but also keep you comfortable at work.
This blue dress with white stripes has pockets! Need I say more?
All of these dresses could be paired with leggings (colder months) and a pair of white sneakers or slip ons.
A little tired of your classic 9-to-5 uniforms?
This slightly off the shoulder A line dress succeeds in hiding the post-lunch bloating while staying chic and work appropriate.
Another dress more appropriate for the warmer months is this high waist pleated number featuring full front buttons.
The flowy silhouette flatters most body types while the soft fabric makes it a great midi dress for the Spring season or summer months.
Another pocketed dress, but this time featuring top to bottom buttons, is this beautiful A-line piece. The leopard print would definitely make you stand out in the sea of black and grey dresses.
Like most of the other dresses on this list, it costs under $50!
4) The skater dress
Skater dresses are similar to A-line dresses and also shift dresses; some of them fall under two or all categories of dresses. This particular style happened to be my favourite when I was scouring the large world of Amazon.
I love the floral print option and could see it getting some rotation in your summer wardrobe.
Loafers - HERE
Dress - HERE (both dresses are the same, just different prints)
Frill sleeves and a flattering waist line are the common themes with the following two skater dresses.
This first one comes in so many colours and prints, you are bound to find a colour you like. It's the perfect dress to go from office to date night or happy hour thanks to the perfect balance of professional and trendy.
Bonus: It also has pockets!
I love both the neck tie as well as the fluttery short sleeves on this next dress.
Flowy dresses are also very flattering on pear-shaped bodies.
Like most of the dresses on this list, it could go with sneakers, flats or heels.
Last but definitely not least is this pussy bow skater dress. There is just something about a bow on the neck that adds appeal to a blouse or dress.
There are also many more colour and pattern choices available on Amazon.
Plusss: As you can tell, it also has pockets!
I hope this list of Best Amazon dresses has been useful and you are able to find some beautiful and comfortable fits for your return to the office.
Your work wardrobe can show off your personal style without breaking the bank.
